BA are planning a new First Class cabin and I was wondering about aircraft down time while this is going on. Do airlines work around the clock in shifts to get the work done quickly or is it a 9 to 5 thing? How quickly could they replace a 747 First class cabin?

I don't have any cabin refit experience, but when I had work experience had BA cardiff, I was told a D maintenance check on a 747 takes about a month working on shifts around the clock, that entails gutting the cabin for inspection and re-installing it again, so I would say less than that.

We did the Delta cabin refits in about 5 days. That was with three shifts. That included removing the seats which were sent to a vendor for overhaul, recovering the ends of the bulkheads, some lav cosmetic changes, new signs, and new carpet. During overhaul they also recoved the sidewalls and reworked the overhead bins. The biggest hold up is the parts supply.
