Around 5pm I noticed that there was a CI 744 parked at Terminal E on 28 April.

Any idea why? Was this a charter or a WX diversion? CI doesn't have scheduled service into BOS.

Yes it was CAL20 KIX-JFK reg. B-18211. It diverted about 3pm. The crew timed out and the flight had to clear Customs & Immigration in BOS. A crew was flown up from JFK and the flight continued to JFK at 9:45pm. Very very long flight for those passengers.

So I guess this means the retrofit for the older 747s didn't make it in time for this route's launch, eh? I thought it was strange that their release said they used a 747 with 61 business class seats.

I can't seem to book a flight JFK-KIX or back, does that mean they have no traffic rights?

They used 74C for this flight. The blue whale is now on it's way there to New York due to the delay.

CI has traffic rights. It's most likely the seats allocated for JFK-KIX v.v. is full. They release 120 seats per flight for JFK-KIX v.v. customers and the rest goes to JFK-TPE v.v.

Are all the older PW B744s scheduled to get refurbished? If so, will they be retrofitted into the same configuration as the B74Cs?

None other than the famous China Airlines Dreamliner:

Ah. Ok (in regards to the Blue Whale).

IIRC, 9 of them are going to be 70J/319Y, the remaining 6 should be the same as the 74C (but with angled lie-flats in J).

None of the business class seats will be lie-flat or angled lie-flat on China Airlines.

Angled lie-flat refers to seats like EVA Air's Premium Laurel, where it does lie-flat but is angled, so it's not horizontal but instead higher on the head and lower on the feet, which is why passengers often slip when they sleep on it. FAs on EVA Air now already know to put extra pillow there for passengers who slide down.

China Airlines' 333, 343 and 744 or the soon refurbished Dynasty seats are angled seats that reclines from 130 degrees to 166 degrees. It "reclines" into sleeping position but it does not lie-flat. Their First Class seats are the ones that truly lie-flat, whether it's the 744 or 74C.

So are the 3class 747s getting the same J seats as the 2 class or they keep the "older" ones. Does Y get PTVs?

3 class 744 will get the same J seats with 15" PTV.

Y gets 9" PTV this time.

74C will continue to run on TPE-KIX-JFK v.v. for the mean time because the new aircraft did not get the configuration approved yet. Therefore, passengers buying J on CI now may seat in F.
