Hey Guys:

Does anyone have any pictures inside the cabin (First/Business- Economy) of the new Qantas A330s that are used on international routes such as SYD-LAX.

found this using the photosearch function

please note that they do not have first - this is business still with the old style sloping skybeds not the new lie flat ones which , IIRC , are only fitted to the A380s

edited to add : just realised that this is a -300 according to the caption , but I assume that the -200s operating AKL-LAX also have the first generation Skybed - can anyone confirm ?

Does QF use an A330 for SYD-LAX??

so far as I know they only use them on AKL-LAX as SYD-LAX is too far ( unless of course the OP meant to type A380 rather than A330 )

Qantas used the A332's on ALK-LAX when they had a shortage of 744's last year. They have never used A333's.
Now Qantas only uses A380's and 744's to the mainland of the USA .

I actually assumed they used them on SYD-LAX ( pun intended because look what happened when I assumed!) I did mean the A330, I have seen plenty of pictures of the inside of the 380, so I can imagine the "Skybeds" are probably the same as is on a A332.

actually I believe the Skybeds on the A380 are lie flat so they are not the same as the old generation sloped skybeds from the A330/744

sorry , my post was probably unclear , I know that they only used the A332 on AKL-LAX , my reference to the A333 was because the photo I posted was from an A333 rather than an A332 . I hadnt realised , however , that the AKL-LAX had gone back to 100% 744s

AKL-LAX is 100% 744 now that the 743 has gone and that CASA's exemption for the A332 has or is expiring. The A333 has never AFAIK flown from either Oz or NZL to the US West Coast. The A332 is configured with 36 J Skybed V1 seats and 199 Y seats. The A333 has 24 J Skybed V1 seats and a lot more Y seats. QF also operates domestic configuration A330s which aren't fitted with Skybeds.
The A380 is fitted with Skybed V2 which is completely lay-flat and has some other improvements also.

The Business class on the 332's is exactly the same as the 333 in the picture above except the 332 has 6 extra seats.

There aren't any International 332 cabin pics in the database although Economy is the same as the 333 below but with the red fabrics instead of blue.

As pointed out above QF no longer fly their 332's to LAX. the International 332's go to BOM, HKG, PVG, PEK and NRT.

The 333 is 30J 267Y.

I'm guessing at some stage they may use the 332s on AKL-LAX again?

30J 267Y sounds cramped like US 330s . That is a longggg flt. for that configuration. What's the seat pitch in Y?

That is for the 333 which does NOT operate that flight.

The A332 used to operate it with 36J/199Y

Seat pitch in Y is 31". The standard pitch for QF international Y
