I am flying BY to PUJ on a 762 with 274 seats. They also have the 762's configured to 290 seats. Neither have premium seats so whats the difference. There are 15 rows on my aircraft, forward of the wings and a total of 35 rows. The 290 seat configuration has 16 forward and 37 overall.

Would i be right in thinking nearly 31 or 32 inches seat pitch

Many thanks.

Stu

Closer to 29 I'd guess, and 8 abreast instead of the normal 7.

Hope you're feeling thin.

29" is standard on the 290-seat aircraft, I am not familiar with the 274 layout but if as you say this does not contain a premium cabin then I imagine the new seat pitch given the two missing rows would be in the order of 30-31"

I believe all BY 762s are now in the 274 seat layout.

Is that just for the longhaul programme though? Those 762s can have range issues with a full load so I imagine that is why.

No wait, some of the 762s are still in 290 config according to Thomson Flights

It's quite simple really.

BY have 4 767-200.
None have premium
Summer season ( May to October ) 37 rows, 28" seat pitch
Winter Season ( November to April ) 35 rows, 30" seat pitch
8 abreast SLIGHTLY narrower seat, narrow ailses.

Operated on G-BRIG yesterday to TFS and she has the new interior and is looking very smart I have to say. The 200's always looked shabby inside due to their age, but no longer.

Woah!! And then to think that they once flew these planes to Australia (with at least 3 stops). Dirt cheap, but one HELL of a flight...

IL76,
Aircraft on the Australian flights were reconfigured with 258 seats - minimum pitch was 31"

Flights opearated with 2 stops, usually in Sharjah and Singapore, although some did continue on to a second Australian destination or New Zealand.

I remember that for a short while, they also stopped in Maastricht on their way to Australia. For obvious reasons, this didn't last long...

On the subject of Britannia 767's, a few of my friends are flying on BY091A in June (East Mids-Majorca) and I have been asked to find out what equipment will be used. I know that a 767 is based at EGNX this summer, but will it be operating this flight?

Cheers

Crosswind,

does it say which 11 rows are 29 inch. On the seat maps on the Britannia/Thomson web site the front seems to have a lot more room on the pictures of the 274 seat map than the 290.

Afraid not!
To find out the exact pitch of a specific row you'd have to look at an engineering drawing of the aircraft concerned!

And it isn't even as simple as a pitch in a given row, often the seatpitch in the window blocks of seats will be different to the pitch in the centre block - even the airline's call center staff will probably be unaware since the difference is so small, and the majority of people wouldn't notice.

When recofiguring from 290 to 274 you remove 8 seats from each cabin, if that helps...

IL76
I'm assuming the Maastricht stops were to pick up passengers, rather than fuel stops? I didn't know that anyway...
