A quick check of their website and seat maps would show 582 seats

The Business Class is five seats across on the upper deck, This 744 has 200 seats more then the typical 744.

Dreadful! Have had a look at one of their 747's when if visited my hometown, and except for the one seat that's all by it self in the nose, seat pitch is abysmal. Even their "business class" seat on the upper deck is a tight fit.

Would not fly with them at any cost as long as there is any other possibility.


2-3-2 is NOT a premium configuration

True, for almost all of the plane. However, the A,B,C seats on the upper deck has got a lot more room than the rest. You can see it in the 360-movie in the link above. I've been on it for an ARN - HKT flight, and the pitch was actually better than an average regular airliner in Y.

Mind as well that there are quite a lot of infants on those flights, easily bringing the headcount above 600 pax. I took a look downstairs and they would have to pay me to sit there. The upper deck has an age limit of 12 years.

The Corsair 747s are known for their tight seating arrangements. I'd like to fly one of them just for fun in economy. It's something any aviation fan just has to do once in his life.

I'd agree, just to say you were one of 'the 600' !

The 747-400D used on domestic routes in Japan has a comparable configuration. JL currently has 546 seats on their 744Ds and that's with an 80-seat business class cabin (2-2 in the nose and 2-4-2 in the second cabin). If those seats were replaced with Y class, total seating would be roughly the same as Corsair.

The JL 744Ds have very small galleys and only 8 lavatories, while JL's longhaul 744s have 15 lavatories. JL 744D seat chart here.

They fly to SXM... that's surely reason enough to fly their 747!
