i was taken aback when i saw the lauda seating for the B777.
the last part of the Y cabin had a 10 abreast seating (3-4-3), while the front part has got a normal 3-3-3
i thought they are all Y class, but why is the seating different?
i certainly wont want the back seat..
but anyone knows why is tt lauda had 10 seats behind?
thanxs for any replies

I think that they use the back part of the 777 for charter passengers because Lauda is mostly a holiday company. Then they use the 3-3-3 seating for non-charter people. Charter companies basically just want to stuff as giving a sh*t about comfort.

I´m not sure but I think that this is the reason.

Actually 10 abreast on the 777 is still quite comfy, much better than 9 abreast on an Airbus...If i'm not mistaken Emirates Y class is 10 abreast and they are certainly not charter. BA also has a couple of 777 that they use within Europe and they are also 10 abreast.

I took a flight on THAI's 777-200 which has 10-abreast seat in Y. It was not too bad at all especially on short-haul flight. I'd never fly on this seat for 10 hours, though.

The reason for Lauda's 2 cabins on Y class are they were supposed to launch a separate economy product, but changed their minds shortly before the 2 aircraft were delivered.

>>>BA also has a couple of 777 that they use within Europe and they are also 10 abreast.<<<
The high density BA 777s are actually used on mainly Caribbean routes to ANU,CUN,GND,SLU,MBJ,KIN,TAB, in the BA45xx series of flights. They are configured 24J and the rest of the a/c as Y at 3-4-3 apart from about four rows at the rear which are 3-3-3. They are operated by BA pilots, but the cabin crew are from some other company - can't think of the name at the moment. They are the cause of the majority of BA complaints about seating capacity, and the arrangement is due to finish at the end of the summer. MBJ and KIN finish, I think, at the end of next month.
Daily BGI flights are served by a normal 772 with F,J,Y seats, with Y being at 3-3-3, and with all BA crew.

Cri 900: Scheduled airlines operate wide body Airbus in 2-4-2 config, that is 8 abreast. The only plane wide enough for 10 abreast is the 747.

Lauda is only performing Charter Flights as from now for Austrian Airlines. Lauda flies there own 777 but on a Austrian Airlines flight number. My contacts told me that.

Ticketing is now the responsibilty for Austrian Airlines.

Well in a year or so Lauda will be gone.

"Lauda is only performing Charter Flights as from now for Austrian Airlines. Lauda flies there own 777 but on a Austrian Airlines flight number... Well in a year or so Lauda will be gone."

ALL Austrian Airlines group airlines now use the OS designator - Tyrolean, Rheintalflug and Lauda. It has nothing to do with Lauda Air being scrapped or whatever. Lauda Air will take over short-haul charter work from Austrian MD80s and focus on leisure destinations, but they are not becoming a charter airline like Britannia or Airtours. They still most of the schedule Asian routes for the OS-group and will continue to do so. What is true is that they will get some kind of re-branding by keeping the well-established name and changing different aspects of their corporate identity.
