JAL 744 Y Class Configuration Question

Hey all,

I'm booked to fly JAL from YVR-NRT in Jan. Seatguru shows a few JAL 744 configs that have Y class in the upperdeck with business class on the main deck. No F class.

Are those strictly the 747-400D? Or do some of them fly overseas?

Just wondering because that would be awesome to score a seat in the upper deck traveling Y!!


Thanks

IIRC the only non-domestic 744s that have that configuration are JA8910 and 8912.. They're only used within Japan, or to Korea.

Before the route got changed to a 767 NRT-BNE used to have Y on the upper deck, which would suggest some long-haul aircraft were fitted with this layout. However its been almost a year since they pulled the 747 off the route so that might have changed now.

JA8901/8917/8920/8921 and JA8087/8088/8089 have the configuration with Y-class seats on the upperdeck. They are used on longhaul/medium hauls, but mostly Hawaii and Canada.

JA8910/8912 fly out of HND at the moment, so no chance for him to get on these from YVR.
He will fly one of the aircraft I mentioned above.

Thanks guys!

I'll inquire about it upon check-in.


I wonder if the Y class upperdeck are sought after by regular travelers (not aviation enthusiasts).

Hi,

the YVR flights are loaded as not having an Y-class upperdeck, but C-class.
Y-class starts from row 40 (A and K seat not available for international flights).
I would say, go for bulkhead row 53 (left side) or exit row 51 (right side).

Have a nice ride!

Thanks for the info!! Do you mean that A and K are not available in row 40?

Again thanks for tips on the good seats.

These seats are available and actually there, but not 'for sale' on international portions. Legroom is very limited on these seats, despite being at an emergency door, caused by the large box for the emergency slide.
