The SAA website still has not been updated to reflect the recently arrived 330-200, however, I have noted that they have updated the decription of the hard product on their 340-300 to reflect the 2 additional aircraft recently aquired/leased. The tail number of these aircraft are tail number ZS-SXG and ZS-SXH and still sport the Iberia interiors not due for upgraded till August 11 if the website is to be believed.

The SAA website is sneaky in its description of the 340-300, now describing business as "slightly offset not 180 degrees" and by saying "except for two aircraft due for fitting of new seats by August 2011"

Differences from SAA other 340-300 seem to be

- Economy seat pitch is NOT the normal SAA 34” on 340-300
- Economy has NO personal TV
- Business is NOT Flat bed – but Lie Flat at an angel and the pitch is significantly tighter
- Business does NOT have on demand entertainment.

Seems the aircraft are being randomly deployed throughout the network.

Quoting pcbm (Thread starter):
- Economy seat pitch is NOT the normal SAA 34” on 340-300
- Economy has NO personal TV

It is quite noticeable! I flew the ex-iberia model (IAD-DKR) last week and it was so tight in Y! The overhead screens were also old monitors.
