It has just occurred to me, that the 744's that LH and NZ fly have their seatbelt/N-smoking signs in the PSU up with the reading lights, however, QF 747s, and to by the looks of the database photos, UA and VS 744s have the older style signs in the isles, as featured on the 747 classics.
My question is this. Firstly why? Could it be that the NZ and LH 744s i have traveled on were newer builds than the QF ones? OR was this an option?
Anybody know? some insite would be greatly appreciated.
here this LH 747 clearly shows clean isle ceiling panels.... no seatbelt signs here.
