I'm trying to nonrev to Southeast Asia next week and I'm weighing my options...my best option seems to be DFW/ICN on KE; anyone know if the 777s have the new cabins yet or if they are still mid rollout?

You'd better call Korean air to find out. Actually what happens is if you say your reservation number (6-digit-alphabet and number thing) then they will answer what the machine says about, "AVOD or not". So I'm not sure how nonrev thing will be. And the seat arrangement is different, old ones are 2-5-2 and new cabin has 3-3-3. I think new 777s are going to DFW randomly, not regularly. Not that much helpful to you, sorry.
Actually too few 777s are refitted. The work is done on half of 747s, but for 777s, 3 newly delivered are maybe all of "refitted" ones. (I'm not 100% sure) KE has 12 772s, but only SEA and JFK are regular routes with new ones, as far as I know.
