I know that CO has outfitted the 777 fleet with the new BusinessFirst seats, but what about their 767 fleet? (And 757s with the international C Class configuration?) Are there plans to outfit these aircraft with the new seats as well, or will they stay as is?

Thanks,
Nick

Is that the ones with what appears to be a hood that comes over the top of the seat? Looked pretty comfy when I saw them the other week, though was in a hurry to get off the flight so couldn't linger.

Yep, those hooded ones are the new ones. I will be flying in BusinessFirst from IAH to EWR tomorrow, so I'll let you know just how comfy they are! (Although, I was asking because next week I'm flying EWR-LAX and then LAX-IAH, but both of those legs are on 767s. I'd love to see if the new seats will be on at least one of those legs)

AeroAussie, the 762 I flew on had the older style BusinessFirst seats, but guess that still leaves one of the other nine that good have the new seats.

The new seats are on the 772ERs only.


And 757s with the international C Class configuration?

C-class is actually opped using domestic-configurated 757s (et al), whereas those with Biz1st seats operate as international J-class.

I flew CO AMS-EWR in Biz First last week, and I sorry, but I could just not get comfy in those seats. I hate to say this but I've been spoiled by the old First Class Sleeper seats that NW had been selling as WBC. I'll be sad to see those go.

I just got back from a trip to MXP and the 2 flights did not have the hooded seats.

Are the 757s and 767s going to get the new seats?

The seats are excellent, probably the best overall product of its kind flying. I thoroughly enjoy it each time I travel with them.

The seats on the 777 are comfortable to sleep in if you are a side-sleeper. If you sleep flat on your back, the slight incline can be awkward, but I haven't experienced a problem.

The 767s and 757s have the older BusinessFirst seats, which go back about 150 degrees and have a nice pitch of 55" and 21" width, although I'm told some of the 757s they have not refitted with updated seats have a width of 20.75". Not much of a difference.

The new seats are currently 777-only, they are probably too expensive to refit to the entire international fleet. However, the design was picked so it could be compatible with both the 757 and 767, so they will appear on both aircraft types at some point in time (not in the foreseeable future), in the following order:

(as seats are replaced)
1. 767-400ER Standard 35/200 configuration
2. 767-200ER
3. 767-400ER Hawaii 20/236 configuration
4. 757-200ET International configuration
