CX's "Old" J-Class Seats, Where Do They End Up?

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 For example, EY also updated their J class cabin with a newer version of the older one.

Thanks!

I've often wondered where used business class seats end up. I'd like to obtain a set.

This question comes up once or twice a year. If you search the old forum threads, you should be able to find some leads. Here's one:

In the US, there are several junkyards around Tucson and the other aircraft bone yards that may have some. No idea where the overseas carriers put their surplus material.

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.

I actually made that thread a while back. I'm talking about the newer seats, I've found a couple of seats on eBay (even J seats) Although they were from the 90s.

The short answer is, who cares, they were awful seats and they should be trashed or burnt!

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

I don't know about CX specifically, but newer seats often go back to the manufacturer for refurbishment and sale to other airlines.


This plane is built to withstand anything... except a bad pilot.

Yup, but by latest 2013, all other 31 77W and 333 with long-haul products would be replaced by the new J~

There used to be a very old J seat from Ansett??? in the living room of a good friend of mine in Canberra... I am not sure if he still has it now that he moved to Brisbane.


Next flights: MEX-GRU (AM 77E), GRU-GIG (JJ A320), SDU-CGH (G3 73H), GRU-MEX (JJ A332).
