Since CX is currently replacing their "old" herringbone J class seats to a newer and better J product, I wonder what will happen to their old J class seats? They're relatively new, are they going to sell it to an airline? Do you have any ideas what will they do with it? In-fact, what do airlines do with the "newer" seats when they replaced them? For example, EY also updated their J class cabin with a newer version of the older one.

There have been rumors that the former herringbone seats will just replace the current regional business class seats (that urgently need replacement). I actually don't mind that.
Anyway, we will have to wait a bit, as the new J seats are only available on newly delivered a/c up to this point. I believe only a handful of the older a/c will get refurbished this year and CX will sure let us know if they will recycle those herringbone seats, since they are relatively new.

This rumour was specifically denied in one of the newsletters to staff.
