Cant wait to see the actual aircraft or interior pics.
The new a/c will come with new F and J and Y class seats.
There will be 12 F class full flat beds and lie angles J class seats.
Y will have new ergomatic with foot stool.
The plane will come with mood lighting and a new AVOD touch screen system.
As we know, all the 744 and 777 will get the new F and J class seats but not the Y.
Hope LY will understand that they will need to upgrade the Y class cabins in the the older 744 and 777. Especially after learning (from EL AL 001) that the new 777 will not be certified to make the longer long haul flights to LAX.

that doesn'tlook all to bad, nevertheless what I hate about the B777's and B747's is the stupid middle seat in C and I love that it is non existant in the A330 / A340's or one can configure their planes like SQ with their new C or Delta and Continental that only put in 2 seats in the middle. Regarding that newspaper article how can LY establish themselves as a serious airline when almost every aircraft is different. In 762's seats are like this in 2 772's you got AVOD in the rest + 744 also not. A key point to be a good airline is consistency in wahtever they do this goes from the product to the actual service.
It really is some bullshit I mean the plane was bought with the same specs as the other planes unless LY screwed up there and regarding MTOW it should be the same. This will only causes again complications for the route planning why can't LY do things right.

Quoting AFC_Ajax00 (Reply 18): What happened with ELAL 001? Why aren't the 777s allowed to fly to LAX?
I think it has something to do with the MTOW. Its the same a/c with same engines, but the certification is different. It can always be upgraded later.
Maybe one of the pilots or someone from the manufactures will know better here ...

Wonderful pic!! Thanks!!
When is the plane going to be fully painted?
It is indeed weird that LY's newest and most comfortable airplanes won't be able to fly the airline's longest routes... There is obviously something unlogical, but I'd like to know how it came to such a result.
I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)
