I was wondering if anyone knows what type of 777 EK will use on the new CPT route. The EK website says 777-200/200er. The question is does EK have ER's? Will this be a new plane or just one from the fleet? Will the seat in J be flat or just recilned ?
Will chauffer drive be offered in Cape Town ? Under the Chauffer drive listing for JNB it says that is offered in CPT, Durban and pretoria but EK in manchester is unwilling to book it for me.

Emirates will use the B777-200's on the route.
Will be one of the folowing A6-EMG-A6-EMK. 3 class config 12/42/236
These are slowly being fitted with the new First/Bisiness class,
So u might find that some might fly with old seating till they all fited out.
The above link is a picture to the old J class seats. Does anyone have a pic of the new j seats ? It does not seem to be on the database for the 200's, I promise to take some photos when I fly if it is on the plane.
EK has 3 777-200 and 6 777-200ER, however they are used as one aircraft type really. On any given route that is a 777-200 you could get an ER, or a non-ER, but they would just call it a 777-200. They might have ER's going on some of the longer routes all the time.
