Looks great indeed. Glad to know that the momentary craze about fishbone layouts may be going away. What I especially like about the new OZ type configuration is that it can accommodate the single traveler as well as a couple; where the couple would choose one of the middle-row seat pairs that are in the adjacent configuration. Great upgrade, Asiana - one of only six Skytrax-rated 5-star airlines.

That is a very impressive J-class seat! Looks like KE's first class Kosmo sleeper seat. Nice to see a 1-2-1 config (UA could learn a thing or two). I hope they bring this to ORD eventually, as would definitely try OZ next time I go to ICN or SIN.

I hope you are right about that. Fortunately, I've never had to fly in that configuration, but I know I would not enjoy sitting at that angle (sometimes away from the windows) while the plane is making maneuvers.

Looks like a pretty cool seat, but that has got to be the DUMBEST name for a product! Quadra what smartium? HUH? Is it a drug? A muscle family? Or an airline seat? I mean, it makes sense, after you read their explanation, but how do you seriously use a name like that in effective branding?
Only one. This bird covers all 3xSFO, 1xLAX and a few short routes that are listed on the link. In the end, ONLY 4 772s will have this product, out of 11 772s OZ has (and 1 more 772 will be delivered in 2012). The upgrading work for 3 more fleets will last until early 2012.

This is great news - never yet had the pleasure of flying OZ yet, and I must say their current J seats didn't seem to quite match up to their clearly award-winning in-flight service, which everyone raves about. You can bet my next trip to SGN is going to be on these! Just need to wait for them to add the new configuration onto the LHR route....
