I have been asking all around work trying to find out when the first 763 will arrive with the new J seats. No one seems to know. Most people dont even know they are comming and when I tell them they say. "Great there goes my profit sharing again...."
From what I got the last time it was brought up, they said the first 763 will be fitted sometime around late winter/early spring. And that one 763 will fly around for a couple of months to see how it works, and fine tune any flaws before converting the rest of the fleet.
Quoting Skyguy (Reply 3): The J seats on the 777's need to be changed too, they are outdated, uncomfortable (especially on long flights like JFK-NRT) and worn-out.
The 767 and 777 J seats are only a little different from each other.
Eventually both airplanes will get the new seats. From what I have heard they will both be lie flat and be state of the art...It is about time. Our current J class seats are non competitive.....basically they suck
