Would a 777 in 2-4-2 seating be feasable and are any airlines operating them in this configuration. Plus what would a 777-200/300 be able to carry if the 2-4-2 seating is 33inch pitch with 18 in first 66inch and 37 in business with 49inch pitch.

Can any1 do the calculations for me please?

A 2-4-2 seating would not be feasible because the 777 is a 300 seat aircraft and with 2-4-2 seating u cannot have near to 300 seats or more. And also airlines try to squeeze in as many passengers as they can in a plane. If u did have a 777 in 2-4-2 then i think it would be around 220 to 250 seats in total, maybe less.

Qatar -- of course it is feasible. I have kept a copy of the Seattle Post-Intelligencer 777 special suppement, dated April 9, 1994, which has 16 pages on the new Boeing airplane. On page 3, they show some typical interior layouts, and one has a so-called business section with 2-4-2, as you suggest. That configuration includes 24 first class (2-2-2), 61 business class (2-4-2) and 243 economy class (3-4-3 -- that's tight!) for a total of 328.

Not having the cabin dimensions handy, I can make some assumptions. Taking the economy section above, multiply by 0.8 to get 8 across instead of 10, then by 0,9 to get 33" instead of 30" pitch, that leaves about 174 in the back. The center can stay at 61. The front section can accommodate about 6 rows, for 48. The total then would be about 283.

This is very rough estimate, of course, but is a bit shy of 300, Arsenal suggests.

Cheers,
Pete

The 777 normally has the same coach configuration as the DC-10 and L-1011, 2-5-2. If you remember, the DC-10 and L-1011 operated for several years with a 2-4-2 coach arrangement. If they could do it, certainly the 777 could.
