With TAM getting new 773's, are they updating their business class seats? If so, do some Brazilian members have a preview?

TAM already has 4 77W's and should get 4 more, but their J class should be the same on all 8 777-300ER's.

I don't know when they'll start retrofitting their aircraft, but yes, there will be new interiors for its long haul fleet of 77W and A350. Don't know if the A330 will see redesigned interiors though.

Edit: the article says "entire fleet"!

Awesome...the service is exceptional I have always found. The interiors already are pretty nice, so this will really make them great.

Does this impact LAN? Surely with their impending consolidation to LATAM, it would make sense to standardise product across both their fleets.

LAN does not operate either B77Ws nor A330s. LAN continues to receive brand new B-767-316ERs and is a major customer for the Boeing 787s. LAN would not retrofit the A-343s with new interiors since they will be phased out in due course.

I do not think that is what Godfrey was asking. I think the comment/question was whether LA will update its business class on the A343s, 763ERs and 788s so as to be similar to the one that JJ will unveil in its A350s and 77Ws. In other words, whether LA will fit the same seats.

Most likely NOT. LAN will operate a wide-body fleet consisting of B-767s and B-787s. The A-343s would not receive new interiors for the reason I mentioned above; unless LAN unveils a new Premium Business class, hint hint. Also, LAN has not unveiled its plans for the interiors of the B-787s; which will join LAN's fleet beginning this year.

So. This is the current J-class seat in the JJ 77Ws, right?:

(I don't like it btw).

So one would assume the new Priestmangoode-designed cabin interior will replace the one on the pics and in the future all 77W and A350 planes will have the same type of interiors. Right?

Now...

...it would not be far-fetched to think that the J-class seats that LA will fit in the 787s may be the same as or similar to the seats that JJ will fit in the 77Ws and A350s.

All JJ has to do is adopt Lan's interiors and they will have an instant upgrade. Classier and full-flat.

Three-year contract with Priestmangoode beginning in January 2010, I guess a few more months and we might see the results. Can't wait!

LAN will improve the interiors ofr its long haul product with new seats in Premium Business and Economy Class. The first aircraft with the new seats has already been introduced in the latest B767-300ER (CC-BDD) and include cabin interior similar as the B787.

The new product will be presented when the first B787 arrive into Santiago.

A Boeing 787-like cabin interior on the B-767-316ER.

The next 4 B77W's shall come with the new F and J seats.
Then is expected that the other 4 will be upgraded shortly. The A332 will come after.



New York + Rio de Janeiro = One of the best combinations !

That's exactly what I meant thank you Señor Eduardo. Or perhaps whether JJ's upgrade will ensure it's to the current high standard of LA
