I should be able to give you a heads up on Friday.v8Statesman said:Can anyone tell me how to find out what type of 763 QF 598 on 04/11/06 is using (Flying with Us - In the Air - Seat Maps - Boeing 767-338ER)?
Over the last 12 months, Qantas have done some considerable reconfiguration of their 763's; converting the 20J int's to 30 J Domestic; re-incorporating the AO craft back into the fleet etc. The Seat maps appear to have not been kept up to date.v8Statesman said:Also why are they so many configs?
Not to mention that the interiors rattle like crazy even in minor turbulence. You would think that the whole plane is falling apart. Don't worry though, it's just the interior thats falling apart.serfty said:I do Detest the ZX* ex BA creatures; Old, Shabby and no directional airvents)
While this be true; I don't have a real affection for exit rows; mainly because all to often one is seated beside a COS (AKA "Big B@rst@rd"), thus negating the benefit of extra leg room.Dave Noble said:Conversely I prefer the 336s to the 338s since there is a real emergency exit door ( rather than the small pop out ones ) and so the exit row has more space
CASA might be interested in this. It sounds as though it's happening all too often.serfty said:While this be true; I don't have a real affection for exit rows; mainly because all to often one is seated beside a COS (AKA "Big B@rst@rd"), thus negating the benefit of extra leg room.
In my experience it used to be that for trans-tasman you could count on getting dreamtime J and domestic millenium J. However, in the past year or so QF has really mixed up the usage and I have often had dreamtime J on australia domestic and millenium on transtasman.maninblack said:Don't know which specific aircraft but it will usually be a domestic config with 30 J seats. The 25 J & 20 J (never been on this one) are international with the Dreamtime seat. The Z aircraft are ex-BA and have a different layout. The others are largely the same as far as I know with some very minor differences.
Yes I have had the international J on domestic a couple of times too. They certainly allocate those aircraft to the longer international routes like Asia and Hawaii when it moves over to 763's, but I gather that there are several "excess" aircraft floating around from time to time or during maintenance periods that get switched into domestic service. The QF aircraft to AKL on 763's I gather get switched around a bit too. QF is a bit unclear about what product they actually fly to NZ these days. Out of MEL best to try to get on the 744 service or the NZ 744's or 777's.Kiwi Flyer said:In my experience it used to be that for trans-tasman you could count on getting dreamtime J and domestic millenium J.

For a 3 hour day-time flight, I find the Dreamtime seats to be great. The thing that lets them down is the old standard IFE (small, dull, low resolution screens). But as far as comfort for a daytime flight, I find them great.maninblack said:The Dreamtime seat isn't exactly top notch these days but still very superior to the millenium domestic J seat, especially in terms of pitch and recline.
