This may be a bit dated, but I thought some may be interested in seeing new AC interior being installed on a A320.

The entire fleet, with the exception of the A340's, are having interior upgrades. The work includes new seats, electronic upgrades, PTV's, and some other cosmetic work.

Personally, I think the new colours are great.


I remember, the choices were chicken or fish. I had the lasagna.

Nice to hear that even the 767s and 330s are being refurbished any idea how long will those two aircrafts be kept in service for.

I didn't mean to post a repeat thread, so I apologize. It was new to me, so I felt it was appropriate.

For those who found it interesting, you are most welcome.

As for the 767 and A330, I think they are being phased out starting in late 2007, with the arrival of B777's. I assume it will be a slow process if AC is investing this kind of money on their oldest equipment as well.

I never knew cabin refurbishments were such a lengthy complicated procedure.

Quick question for anyone in the know. When you look at the pictures of the new Eco seats, on certain ones you'll notice that most of the seats on the right hand side of the craft have a littl black box on the bottom left next to the PTVs, but on the right, it looks like only one seat in each row of the left side of the planes have the box. Firstly, why the difference between the two sides, and secondly, what does the box do?

They won't be phasing 767-300 and A330-300 too early because they are getting their Extreme Makeover. The ones getting phased out early will be A340-300s and A340-500s. No point of doing extreme make over for 767 and A330 if they were to phase out next year.

Thanks for posting this thread... I enjoyed it! I don't know why people get so upset over repeat threads. If it is not new to you, don't read it!

Don't apologize. Some people just have sand in their netherregions about these things.  Smile

Great photos, it's really interesting to watch the little details (like the electronics stashes under the aisle panels, very cool!) be installed and wired up.

Those little boxes are the in-seat power supply (power plugs). There are two for each triple. The left seat and the centre seat... on both sides of the aircraft.

Doesn't airliners.net try to prevent duplicates and try to get people to search for threads on old topics first? It doesn't bother me. If airliners.net doesn't have a duplicate prevention strategy that is fine. I'm curious when NW is getting rid of the DC9s, why Canadian airport codes start with Y, and I'm really trying to figure out if the sky is falling at Airbus or Boeing so perhaps I'll start a thread on it.

They just took delivery of the 345, why would they be phasing them out early while still keeping the geriatric 767s?



It's not road rage. It's COURTESY ENFORCEMENT.

Because they will be getting a better plane, the Boeing 777-200LR. The 767s will be around until the 787 replaces them in a few years.

What about the 763's? the website only mentioned that the upgrades were being done on the 762's.

It is not unusual for it to take 9 months to a year between the contract for a reconfiguration being awarded and the actual mod to start. Engineering and parts manufacturing take time.

Quoting Okees (Reply 2):
Never knew it takes less than 2 months to refurbish the interior of a plane!

Once a few of the same mod has been accomplished, it is common for an interior reconfiguration to take 3 to 4 weeks. First planes are always the big challenge and can run between one and three months. Some even more, but that is never the plan.
