What is the seating config for these 'new' frames? Do they have VA or KLM interiors?

138 economy seats.

As opposed to VBY and VBZ that have 8 J and 120 Y.

That would make sense as VH-NHW must be just about ready to leave XSP and 2-HBGT will replace her in maintenance. NHW also did a blip on FlightAware yesterday as well.

For the ones in Europe:

PH-BGX is currently in Norwich (for paint ?)
PH-BGK was withdrawn on 25/11
