When you look at the CX web site for the New Business Class one of the photos show 2+3+2 seating! Are the seats arranged in a 2+3+2 configuration on 744s? I know that the A330/A340 have a 2+2+2 confuguration. Also any info on the number of New Business Class seats on 744s?

for B744 standard 21 main/26 upper
for B744 long Biz 39 main/26 upper
been on the standard once, one toilet removed with a changing/reception area in the main deck, so from now on pax and crew can chat at that area till whenever the seat belt sign is on. For the seat as all you know it's not a totally flat bed but the foot rest have improved a lot though, seat control is totally automatic(if everything is normal) the AVOD(audio/video on demand) PTV with air phone on everyseat. You can use yr laptop and check yr e-mail( as long as u hv an account with the e-mail provider). But it seems there's not enough storage at the upper deck as half of the closet been used for the storage of the Bottle water for pax cos the crew will give every pax one small bottle of mineral water.

I flew business class last week in a Cathay Pacific 777 from HKG to SIN, and their seats were 2-3-2, and extremely comfortable. I was in the second row window seat. In the first row, there was no seat where the window seat would be, just a little console. By the way, there was no first class section at all. The business class section was in the front. Service was wonderful!
