hey, i have a question, the Boeing 747-400`s from Eva Air have a 8F 16C 396Y
seating configuration, 16C seats is nothing compared to other airlines.
I got this info from the JP airlines fleet book.
So my question is doesnt Eva fly that many business people, because they only have 8F and 16C seats. I´m kinda surprised that this airline concentrates more on the Y passengers is this really like this or what is the reason for this configuration? And im not talking about the Combis im talking about a full passenger config. 747-400 such as B-16402

Quoting Tod (Reply 3): This Fall they were taking bids on 744 interior reconfiguration.
Just a guess, but I would imagine that they will bring the 744s in line with the new 773ERs, which have a more traditional 3-class layout, including lie-flat beds in first class and an upgraded business class.

BR's 773ERs do not have First Class. It is, however, in a 3 class config:

Quoting Kanebear (Reply 4): EVA's Super Business Class is so poor that it really makes no difference to fly it vs. Evergreen Deluxe which IMO is the best bargain across the pacific. If I gotta fly Y, ED is a better way to go.
A while back I read a post on here and basically it had EVA Air and they had so many different classes on their aircraft.

I have been on EVA Air's Premium Laurel (A332) and Super Business (B74M) recently and Super Business was a joke compared to Premium Laurel. The only interesting thing about it was that First and Super Business shared the upper deck and the single galley up there, resulting - IIRC - in the same food service for F and C. However, Super Business certainly needs an update urgently.
