I was checking some IB pics and came across one of IB's 747's EC-BRQ.
In the first one you can clearly see that it has three windows in the upper deck.
In the next one it has the more conventional layout with more windows.
Is it possible that the aircraft was later reconfigured to that standard? or maybe there is a mistake with the registrations?

BA converted all 747-100s (most of which were delivered with the 3 window upperdeck and apparently the lounge up there) with the 10 window solution around 1980. Northwest did that too in the late 70s, as did other airlines.

TWA's later 747's all had the 8 or ten windows, but they were all plugged for fleet commonality. This sadly became the basis for speculation when flight #800 crashed - the coverings popped out revealing the larger number of windows, and some thought it was evidence that the investigation was a fraud.
