I will be flying on JAL Flight 622 from PVG to NRT and SQ Flight 12 from NRT to LAX on 30 June. I was wondering if anyone might be able to give me any information about the particular ships I will be travelling on that day? I am specifically interested in the business class seating dimensions of these aircraft, especially the SQ 744 I will be on for almost 11 hours. Will these be the spacebeds or the new business class seats? I know that the new J class seats were first introduced on the 773ER's, but was unsure of the time table for adding them to the rest of the long-haul fleet.


I am in seat 5A on the JAL flight and 14A on the SQ flight. The SQ seat is in the attic and I was wondering if this is the best location or would I prefer being in the lower deck J seating. I ask this because this is my first time ever flying on a 747 after many years of flying, so needless to say, I am super pumped about the experience. I just want to make it the best trip possible for me!!

Any information will be much appreciated.

Oh how I miss Midway Airlines. A class act right to then end.

I am on SQ JFK-FRA-SIN (747) in July. I don;t believe they changed over the 747's yet. I have been in F class before and looking forward to experiencing the spacebeds. They look pretty comfortable besides the slope issue.

I like the upper deck much more than the lower J cabin. I have been in CX J class upper deck many times. I like the upstairs because it is less crowded and more private. They say that the exit row 17 is the best seat upstairs. However, I could not get those seats now because they are not released until the day of departure unless you have status I believe.

The SQ flight will definitely be a 747-400. They all have lie-flat seats in business class sloped at 7 degree from horizontal. I like this seat a lot. Food is great and you can go to their website and see a selection of meals from which you can order in advance by phoning SQ. AVOD is excellent. All the seats upstairs are good seats.

From what I understand SQ don't have any plans to install the new F and J cabins on any aircraft in the fleet, other than the 773ER

The A340-500s and some of the 777-200ERs might be refitted, but the 747-400s will not be.

If you are a window geek then don't sit on the upper deck, because the windows are slightly bent upwards what makes it more difficult to view things below. The upper deck might be a bit cosier, but the business section on the main deck is fine too. Anyway I am sure you will enjoy the flights with SQ.

Hi,

www.seatguru.com is always a good source for finding out what the configuration and the seating dimensions of the aircraft is like.

Have a nice flight.

Thanks for that information. I wonder if JAL will be able to access those seats for me. I fear that if I wait until I arrive at NRT it could be too late to get in row 17!

Does anyone know which SPECIFIC aircraft are scheduled for these flights? Any interesting history about them?

The JAL site only list 767 but does not show which specific type of 767. Does anyone know the actual aircraft type? 200, 200ER, 300, 300ER, 400ER?
