After seeing a pic on here of the new Air China F seat I was flicking through their website and came across their seat map for their 744s (below). To have the F section behind J and not in A zone made sense space wise but I must confess it was one of the more strange configurations out there. I am curious what other modern and present unusual configurations exist? TG and KL seem to use the side galley, which is rather unique, what other strange and wonderful configurations exist?

I think BA did it to increase Club capacity rather than due to the seat width, as they can fit the same number of CW beds in B zone on the 70J 747s as they had with the first gen beds.
The Air China configuration is interesting but presumably means that there's more aisle traffic than in the A zone since you've got FAs passing through to the other cabins. Also, a lot of pax passing through the cabin if you use 1L as the boarding door.
