Methinks that *is* F class. The layout shown looks suspiciously like F in Zone A on a 747. Note how the forward seats are set closer together. No other seating configuration is like that except in the nose of the 747. Possible they got the J and F publicity photos mixed up?

Kanebear, you're actually right. The photos got mixed up. We clearly see flat beds on the picture, whereas the official press release talks about
angled lie-flat seats for the new J class. See the quote below!
So, does anyone have the J seat pic?
The Business Class seats in both aircraft types will also take on a new dimension. The seat will be an angled lie-flat seat with additional legroom built into the design. Other features include adjustable lumbar and headrest, privacy shell and a large meal tray. At recline position, the seat will transverse inside the fixed shell, allowing for more personal space and privacy. In addition to the privacy shell, a sliding divider will provide additional level of privacy to travelers while sleeping or working.

From the news article :-
For the B777-200s, the reconfiguration involves converting the three classes (First, Business and Economy) to just two classes – Business and Economy. There will be 42 Business Class seats and 247 Economy Class seats.
The B747-400s will still have three classes but fewer seats, to enhance passenger comfort. It will have 12 First, 41 Business and 306 Economy Class seats.

Looks great; Malaysia has won the best cabin crew award for quite a few years and its home base is one of the best in Asia; this should hopefully bring it well deserved praise and recognition as one of Asia's leading airlines.
Incidentally, do MH's 332s have PTVs in J and Y class?

I hear that the A330 fleet is to be retrofitted with seats removed from the current 747 and 777 fleet as those aircraft get kitted out with their new interiors so the A330 fleet may well be sporting PTVs soon.

Nice First class cabin. It most definitely does not look like a Business Class cabin to me. If that is really the first class, then it's nothing exciting, but merely a case of MH emulating what its competitors have done long ago. But of coz, I suppose MH's brilliant inflight service will more than make up for the disappointment.
