    yay! my first post!, sorry in advance if I've put it in the wrong place.:mrgreen:

    Anyways onto the subject at hand, I'm booked on QF0518 from PER to SYD on a 743, and after looking at the seatmaps for that aircraft (http://www.qantas.com.au/info/flying/inTheAir/ourAircraft/seatMap743),
    it seems that VH-EBV has two seating configurations!

    could anyone shed some light on this please,
    thank you in advance,

    96julians , welcome to AFF. :D

    VH-EBV was the last Qantas 743 converted to Dreamtime seating with Personal IFE throughout the cabin.

    You can be rest assured it is the 52J398Y version; the only 52J370Y version left (Nalanji Dreaming) is inoperative and I believe has been housed at AVV for the last 18 months or so.

    VH-EBV is 52J 398Y.

    QF should take Nalanji off their website but they actually still refuse to admit that it is permanently out of service. It has been stripped of engines, rudder, flaps and various other parts and apparently has no seats in it either. 0J 0Y

    Perhaps they should also strip it of its paint scheme and put us all out of our misery :mrgreen: .

    I wonder if the removal of the seats was part of the process for freighter conversion? Of if the AVV engineers just needed a new venue for indoor cricket :p ?
