I think because there is no certification yet.

After certification, seat plans will be made public along with airline requests.

I may be wrong but I think that is the case

Certification should not matter beyond setting a maximum upper limit of capacity, which most non-charter carriers will not approach.

I expect 787 operators are playing around with seat maps. I also expect NH will go with something along the lines of their new "Inspiration of Japan" cabin now being introduced in their 77W fleet.

I'm not trying to be funny in the slightest, but why would there be seat maps when no airline has even received an aircraft let alone it hasn't even flown?

I would at least expect one from BOEING!!! Just like they have for all other aircraft they produce. Except the 748!!!

Eh, it's amazing what you can find if you just put in a little effort - like 30 seconds worth.....

Why are the manufacturer's demo seat maps so behind on the times? They all show very basic first and business class seating configurations including 39 inch pitch in Business, which sounds more like Premium Economy by today's standards. No airline would ever configure their international aircraft like these show. It's also disappointing that 3-3-3 appears to be considered the standard configuration on the 787 and not just a dense configuration.

They're not behind the times, they're the industry standard layouts so that the LOPA, capacity charts, range curves, etc. all line up. Those standards happen to be really old, but that's not the OEM's fault. It's what lets you do apples-to-apples on the specifications.
