Thu Dec 11, 2003 11:39 pm

Sardins......guess it has to do with
pax they can fill the a/c, max 450?
but if a customer want the "sardincan"

They can... but almost no one's going to do that, particularly if flying extended range or longer range 777s over the Atlantic/Pacific.

EK fills one of their 773As with slightly less than 450 pax, but that's because it is relegated to regional flights.

Airlines turn airplanes into "sardines cans", not the manufacturers...

Those stats are good for the 773A, but the 773ER features slightly less seating capacity: starting with a 365 three class config.

Let's face it, any given airline can, and sometimes does, turn a perfectly wonderful airplane into a sardine can.

and there are airlines like AF putting 310 into the 773ER's so it's all relative.

FYI.

Let it be Air France, Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qantas etc. The list would go on for ever. Everyone knows that every airline thinks about fitting as many people as it can into Economy Class for the purpose of filling up the aircraft & to make as much revenue from the 1 aircraft.
Its sad really having to walk past these well spaced out Business Class seats knowing your going to be crammed into a confined space. Very sad.
Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are tonight’s entertainment!

Air France B777 are configured that way :


B777-200ER : 12 First / 56 Business / 202 Economy = 270 seats. This configuration is about to change within th next month with the introduction of brand new First and Business Call seats.


B777-300ER : 8 First / 67 Business / 235 Economy = 310 seats. This type of plane will join the AF fleet in April 2004 and will be equipped with the new seats.
