AF 777/200 NEV Seat Retro Fitment

Wed Aug 23, 2006 9:21 pm

HI,

I know that this topic has been already discussed, but things are in evolution.

I am flying from CDG to EZE in business from the 18th to the 25th of october.
I know some of AF's 777/200 have been retrofiteded with the new seats ( NEV "nouvel espace de voyage").
However, I don't know how many chances I have to get those...
If yes I hope that tje entertainment system (Rockweel) has been changed !!

regards

Typically, EZE is served with the "old" 772 config.

Air France is operating 25 B772ER.
7 of them are already reconfigured : F-GSPA, F-GSPB, F-GSPL/M/N/O/P.

For the moment, EZE is not served by one of them. Don't know yet for October. Will check.

The entire fleet is supposed to be reconfigured by April 2007, I suppose another 2 or maybe 3 more aircraft will be refitted by the end of Octobre, but the process with the B772ER is slower than with the A343.

During the current timetable, where the daily EZE flights are combined with a SCL tag, the flights (AF416/417) are operated with a B772ER in old configuration. During the winter, Air France will run 12 weekly terminator flights to EZE (daily, AF418/419) and SCL (5 weekly, AF406/407). EZE will operate with the new configuration effective Monday, January 29, while SCL will see the retrofitted planes from the onset of the winterschedule on Sunday, October 29.
