Apologies if this has been discussed before. Comparing these pictures of Air Canada 767s, it looks like the "chevron" staggered seating of the lie-flat beds takes up much more room than the previous seats. True? If so, how many seats were lost? Or how much bigger was the section made to accommodate the same number of seasts?

Only 1 J-class seat was lost. Typical Business Class configuration before was 25 seats, and is now 24 seats in the new configuration. Economy Class capacity remains the same.

During the refurbishments, cupboard space and/or lavatory facilities have been relocated and/or removed. The top picture portrays a 767-300 "ex-CP" metal. On this aircraft there was formerly a lavatories behind row 5 (J/C) and ahead of row 12 (Y/C). Both lavs were removed, and one was relocated to ahead of seat 1A, where a large cupboard was previously located. So at the end of the day, Y/C has lost one lavatory - from 5 > 4.

According to the plan fins 658-661 which are equipped with main deck crew bunks will have 25J seats while the rest of the 763 fleet will have 24J.
