A.332
 
I have noticed that EBO and EBS are now configured as 27/228 - 255 seats a reduction from 28/243 - 271. They appear to be sold as 27/251 on International flights as 37A 37B 37J 37K (curtains) are crew rest seats. Business get an extra toilet in place of 5K and Y seats are reduced from Rows 23-39 and 44-58 to Rows 23-37 and 45-58.

EBV has also been in maintenance in BNE since 24 July so presume it is going to get the same conversion??

Any comments?

EBO EBQ EBR EBS EBV will be reconfigured to a long range configuration. There is a tech crew rest being installed adjacent the mid galley area.

Assume EBP will also get reconfigured too to make up the fleet of six.

An internal email last week said that 2 more (EBM/N) will also get the reconfiguration. Making the -200T fleet 8 aircraft.

I wonder if at some point, they will get the newer screens in Y similar to the -300s. The previous generation resistive touchscreens in the -200s are starting to get a little bit long in the tooth given that these -200s will probably be operating on longer sectors than the -300s.

Arguably (and ironically), the domestic -200s with iPads are actually a better experience.

After flying several legs recently on the 'regional' A332 including QF71/72 I couldn't agree more, I believe BYO IFE is the way forward.

Also, has anyone actually used the wifi on -EBB?

Guess it makes sense to include these two given they have seatback IFE screens in Y already.

This means QF will eventually have 10 domestic/international short haul configured A332 in 28J/243Y (including EBG which I understand is being upgraded/reconfigured and EBL which will happen next year) in and 8 international long-haul configured A332 in 27J/224Y.

Yes, apologies, this is correct. :D

VH EBL has been in "maintenance" in BNE since 2 October, anyone know if it is getting its conversion to 271 seats now??

Dennis McLean 14th November 2018 07:37 AM

EBP is back in service QF51/52 13/14-11 no doubt converted to 27/228 seats.

EBL still in BNE
