I was just wondering how many of the recently delivered Emirates 777s (i.e. the 'EGx series) were configured in a two class layout; there seems to be quite a small number of routes which have two class aircraft - those to India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia and also, to Birmingham and one or two other European cities. I wonder if the number of these aircraft has increased. All of the standard 773s (i.e. the RR powered acft) seem to be in three class layouts, so all of the two class 773 flights must be operated by 77Ws.
Airliner World produced a full list of the airline's fleet with configs, but that was well over a year ago, since when many more have been delivered.

Although I think they interchange the 3-class and 2-class 77Ws pretty liberally, even for destinations where only two classes of service are offered. For example a number of the flights to Pakistan, which are all sold as two-class, frequently see 3 class 77Ws or the 773s.
In such cases, do they keep the F class cabin empty or do they use F class seats to seat J class passengers?
There are no 2 class planes in the A6-EGx series, but some are in the newest A6-ENx series.
The difference between the 2 seating configs is the business class. The airplanes with more economy seats have the old style business class (recliner chairs) and the airplanes with less economy seats have the newer business class (lie flats). The reg of the older business class airplanes are:
