Hey guys,

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?

British Airways has some of their 747s configured with the World Traveller Plus (W) cabin in zone B - ahead of Club World (J) and just behind First Class.

And I love that! Have never disembarked a 747 that fast, just after the F class PAX.

Ahh K I presume BA did that as the cabin is wider in that zone and fits the club world seats there best?
Or is there any other reasons?

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.

Can only assume thats due to the forward galley being exclusive for first class , and the one at the very front is for business ?
