Just wondering why the international 332's have different config. 3 a/c have 199 Y seats while 1 a/c has 201. Any idea guys?

Three of QF's A330-200s have 36 seats in Business Class and the others have 34. Go to www.icns.com.au/qflyer and take a look at the seat plans.

It appears EBL has the crew rest seats with normal pitch, where as the other 3 International 332's have had a row of 2 seats removed to increase seat pitch.

All of QF's A332's have a configure of C36y201...
The Y199 configure you are questioning are the 4 seats blocked required for crew rest...

There is also the domestic configuration of 34J and 265Y.

The Y201 config also has 4 crew rest.

But...

Please allow me to make sense of the situation.

EBG/H/I have 36J199Y *plus* 4 cabin crew rest. The cabin crew rest on these aircraft have extended pitch. When these aircraft were introduced the FAAA and the company agreed to AKL-LAX flights using this aircraft. One of the requirements for cabin crew was that the crew rest had extended pitch due to not being horizontal (bunks). Qantas never planned to use the 332s on such long sectors though this was required due to 744 availability.

EBJ/K are domestic aircraft and have nothing to do with the original question.

EBL is in international conifguration, just as EBG/H/I. This aircraft does not have extended pitch in the cabin crew rest seats. Hence this aircraft has an extra 2Y.

All international 332s will eventually have 36J/201Y configuration. This will occur as the aircraft come off the routes that would normally require horizontal rest. Namely AKL-LAX-AKL and SYD-BOM.

As SYD-BOM only requires horizontal rest in one direction it is my understanding the FAAA have agreed to dispensations to allow aircraft to operate this route without the higher standard of rest.

That is not correct - see my reply above. The difference between 199 and 201 is only 2, by the way  Smile
