Thai Airways - not sure about the 777s with the retrofitted Business Class, but on all of the ones I've flown on, Econ has been 10 abreast.

Thai Airways does on their 777's  Smile

I don't think the 200ER's (on order) will have 10 abreast as they will be used on long haul routes (although the 773 to ATH does)  Smile

Question is how many would a British charter airline like ThomsonFly put in a 777? 3-5-3?

I doubt thats possible although I know some chater tridents had 4-3 configs. Can you imagine having to climb over 3 people to get to the aisle  Smile

Varig has 10 abreast as well on their ex-BA 777. I flew on one of those and let me tell you it was quite uncomfortable compared to their Md11

JL 777s are all nine-abreast.
NH's domestic 773s are all ten-abreast while the 772s have both nine- & ten-abreast types; the newest four 772s being ten-abreast.

Are you sure you were flying Varig? None of their 777's have 10 abreast. They are either 3/3/3 or 2/5/2.

Has anyone been on EK 777 with 10 abreast? If so, is it really a noticeable difference from the 9 abreast used by other carriers?

I know EK has often been ranked high for their service, that's why I'm wondering.

I have been on EK 777 with 10 abreast. The great leg room more than makes up for this.

Thai Airways

According to the Thai website, http://www.thaiairways.com/Travel_De...ion/Aircraft_Seatmaps/default.htm, some 772s have 3-4-3 and some have 3-3-3, while all 773s have 3-3-3.

Are you sure about this? See above link.

and OS on their 3 777-200

But only in the rear part of the cabin. In the center part, it's 3-3-3.

As do all 747 operators.

I´ve been on an EK 777 (10 abreast; DXB-BKK-DXB) and an AF 777 (9 abreast; CDG-PEK-CDG), everytime I was in an aisle seat and someone sat next to me.

I didn´t feel any difference and I´d take the EK 777 anyday again.

Does anyone know if any airline out there flies with Thompson Solutions "Beatle" econmy seats configured 10-abreast on a 777?


--cslusarc from YWG
25 CrossChecked : British Airways had 3-4-3 in the days of "AML" out of Gatwick. A chater outfit operating on British Airways planes, in British Airways colours and uni
26 ManchesterMAN : I've flown EK with 10 abreast as well as many carriers with 9 abreast and all I can say is that I'd take the 10 abreast and 34" pitch of EK any day o
27 Ozair : Recently flew from DXB to BHX in an EK772, the 10 abreast was fine although I struggled a bit with the leg room. Being 187cm and sitting next to the
28 A3xx900 : 10 abreast in 3-4-3 config is MUCH better than UA's 2-5-2 config. I would NEVER ever want to sit in the middle seat! The one time I've flown UA's 777
29 Atmx2000 : By reducing seat and aisle width. 10 across has ~17" seat bottoms as opposed to 18.5"+ seat bottoms in 9 abreast. One reason to expect 787's in 9 abr
30 Cedarjet : BA got complaints about the lack of room on the 3-4-3 configured AML 777s, but EK win awards! I guess AML didn't have the legroom. There's no noticeab

33 9kbos : CO ops a 10 abreast 777....3-4-3 in a two cabin config.
34 Post contains links and images AKelley728 : You must be thinking of someone else. CO has always had 9 abreast (3-3-3) in their 777s. http://www.continental.com/Travel/inflight/aircraft/777.asp
35 EI321 : Interesting, I thought only a handful of carriers used 10 abreast 777s. Do many airlines have 9 abreast A300,A310,A330 or A340s?
36 Acelanzarote : Have flown on a BA777 with 3-3-3 seating, it was a G-YMM- one Have also flown Emirates on a 777 with 3-4-3 seating, hated it and was glad to return on
37 NumberTwelve : Another question: who is willing to pay more money if airlines offer wider seats or seats with more seat pitch? If there is an airline offering a trip
38 FlySSC : Air France has 3x3x3 in the "Classic" B772ER & B773ER. Starting June 2006, AF will fit some new B773ER, ordered recently, with a high density configur
39 Airbazar : I disagree 100%. A window seat no matter what configuration is better than any middle seat. On a window seat I don't have to wrestly for the arm rest
