Correction the 744 will seat 587 seat= 29C+558Y.
29C+36Y U/D and the rest on the main deck. 4 more seats in C as more room taken from the cockpit, and 3 more seats as one lav had been eliminated on the main deck.
2 lavs in C just after the cockpit door for C class and 11 lavs for Y on the main deck. Y pax have to go down and they want to use the lav...

Tom, they would have sold it because the 744s are replacing the 743s. Air Atlanta have bought that 747-300 along with others and I believe they are to be used on the Travel City Direct flights, in TCD colours. However, I would have thought that the aircraft would have been Air Atlanta Europe and G- registered if this was the case. Anyone know anymore?
