Why Does The Newest SAA A346 Have Older J Class?

Sat Feb 07, 2004 3:16 pm

Hi all,

Check this out:

As can be seen, these are still the old type Business class seats and
not the lie flat seats fitted in ZS-SNE which was delivered last year. The lie flat seats have got a "cocoon" type shell around them. See

It seems very strange that a later aircraft (ZS-SNF and SNG delivered end Jan 04) comes with the older type seat, especially considering that the aircraft was delivered about a month late.

When will the rest of the A346 fleet receive the new seats?
