fascinating and very fine, thank you! The blue seats, especially, are very nice - along with blue carpet.
Do you have any pics of old scheme, to compare?

Brilliant, thanks for that. Any in-seat entertainment in business or is it literally just new fabric? Mind you, the personal DVD player's a nice touch.

I hope NZ60 on July the 14th is a refurbed one.

They look very nice and definately give the cabin a modern feel.

Wish they could change the the overhead lockers to give the 777 feel.

First Choice Airlines see to be one of the very few airlines that have changed the overhead lockers on there 767's when they have carried out an overhaul of their cabins after receiving them from Vietnam Airlines.

It definately goves the cabins a bigger and more modern feel, but assume this is quite an expense.

Is it me, or have they increased the padding in the economy seats? They looked awfully "thin" before, but now they suddenly look a whole lot comfier!

I like how the J cabin has the chocolate feeling like the rest of the fleet, gives a feeling of commonality. The Y cabin looks heaps better, more spacious and a newer feeling. The padding makes the seat look newer and more the new style seats on the 747 and 777.
Very nice change.

Looks great! Huge improvement. Dissapointment that there will be no personal entertainment in economy, but i guess they won't be in the fleet for that much longer.

I know that, so thats why I said it as a joke cause of the new look. The inside looks like a new aircraft. Maybe read the post a bit better next time Antskip

I cannot help but think that those economy seats don't really look too comfortable: they're so flat... usually seats are somewhat rounded to adjust to the shape the backs people put into them...

But maybe that's just an optical impression and the seats themselves are actually quite comfortable.

I do have to agree, though, that the general look of the cabin is nice.

Frank

Hawaiian are also installing "777" interiors on the four 763's they recently purchased (ex Delta).

sorry, 77ER. I meant no offense. I obviously did not read it as a joke, and thought it a bit of a strange comment, on the evidence. I still can't find any indication in your post that of it being tongue-in-cheek (e.g. smiles). Now you have pointed it out, I can see what you mean.

It looks very nice, but what's the difference between the last two pictures? Is the second one premium economy or something like that or are they both economy (I guess they're both economy).
I've noticed also some legrests: on the second picture it seems only the first right windowseats have them and on the third picture the seat at the first row (right aisleseat). What's the deal with that? Special assigned seats for a crewrest?

The two colours are for the "middle cabin" and back both economy (at least my best guess)

and the legrest they all do but all of them have them on the back of the seat in front. bulkhead has it different since there's no seat to attach them to

Yes, once the 787s arrive... either 2008/9 if NZ leases some 788's or 2010 when the 789's arrive. The 763ERs are simply filling the gap in the meantime...which is why AVOD IFE etc is not being installed.

That might just be the lighting/angle of camera and like variables when the shot was taken... also, filled with people, it will look quite different. Empty aircraft always look rather sad to my eyes...!

Yes, it doesn't make economic sense to do a major upgrade of the 767-300s when they only have a few years service life left... we'll just have to "lump it" on the long routes in the meantime, and look forward to the 787s when they come.
