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

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 used to love the smell of Jet-A in the morning...

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.

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?
Twins,twins, everywhere.... but where are the three holers?

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