Could this be a mistake and actually be the F class product?

Looks very F cabin layout and in the text of the article it says that F will have 12 seats on the 747 and in that shot there are twelve seats.....and it is in the nose.

If I am wrong the F product is going to be good

Amazing!

Any announcements concerning the capacity? It seems that it has a very low density. Will they make money out of it?

Another question: what will they do to their F class so that it does not get cannibalized by the new J class?

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?

*EDIT* FBGDavidson beat me to it. Big grin

If that is Business class, then they are not going to make any money with that arrangement. That looks VERY standard First Class in a 744 ala SQ, CX and BA.

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?



*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*--*-*
From http://hq.malaysiaairlines.com

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.

NICE ONE  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

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.

This could be business from the 777. The article said the 777 would be two classed.

I'm pretty sure that is First Class. At least from my perspective, that does not look like 58" seat pitch. Its definitely the 80" seat pitch described for First Class.

The above will be the the First Class in the 744!

I'm sure C class will have something like a 2/2/2 configuration as most airlines have in their C class in the 777.

The article clearly says, that there are 12 F Class seats in the 744 and they can be counted on the picture above.

Even for F class it still looks fine for me. I mean for sure better than the current once!

Those photos are F class seats for the 744 fleet.

The C class seats will still have a 2-3-2 configuration, angled lie-flat like on many other airlines we see today.

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?

The MAS 333 don't have PTV in C and Y class. Don't know about the 332 but I doubt they have. In fact that is very bad, I flew MAS C class on the KUL-MLE-CMB one year ago.

I hope the 2/3/2 config in GCC only goes for the 744 but not for the 772!

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.


There's always a better way to fly...

Even on the 772, 2/3/2 in J class is very common among 3 class carriers and is quite comfortable. BA's excellent J class is 2/*4*/2. The carriers that are 2/2/2 in J are generally two class carriers.
