Hi everyone!

Has AS been retrofitting their NG's with the power outlets and new seats as promised? I haven't seen evidence of any retrofits yet.

Hasn't started yet, I think its supposed to start within the next couple of months with a planned completion by the end of 2014.

First a/c is supposed to be in service in October from what I've heard. All NG aircraft are getting the new Recaro seats with usb and 110v power at every seat...not sure about the -400's as their time is limited. That same airframe I believe is also a test of new, larger overhead bins. If successful, hopefully all pre-BSI NG aircraft would be retrofitted with new oh bins, psu's and BSI-style cabin lighting. The bins are supposedly big enough to accommodate every single person bringing a rollerbag onboard.

Don't forget the new onboard entertainment. Sounds like it's a go.

Please! Yes, please! Current Sky Interiors have become a nightmare for rollerboards on a full aircraft!

Yep, BSI oh bins are a disaster. They actually hold LESS than the original NG bins. How Boeing sold that as an "improvement" is beyond me.

Hurray! You mean stored on-board content streamed wirelessly to personal devices? Hope there's some free content included. Will be great for Hawaii/Mexico flights with no internet.

I don't think the bins hold any less but they certainly don't hold any more. Many pax don't know how to stow their own luggage that's for sure. Also I think it's ridiculous that OHB's keep getting larger.... the last thing we need is larger baggage stowage over our heads in the cabin. People need to bring less.

I don't believe that will ever happen, some people are bringing absurdly large bags aboard.

The former has to happen as the latter is never going to happen.

Even the 700s?

I don't think the -700's are scheduled for the new interiors...they're going to be disappearing over the next few years due to higher CASM than the -800 and -900's.

I'm flying 3 AS 737-800s in October, it would be cool to get to experience of the new interiors. What is changing about the F class seats? I understand power outlets and IFE upgrades, are the F cabin seats being replaced also? Footrests maybe?

They will be the same as the seats in the 900ER's. Recaro 416 series in first and 941 series in coach. No footrest.
