EK & Rolling Out Of New Seats

Sat Aug 25, 2007 12:58 pm

I'm scheduled to take EK316 to Osaka tomorrow...I'm in J but hoping for an upgrade to F. Flight is supposed to be on an A340-5 which has awful J seats. Darn umcomfortable

Is there any chance that this aircraft will have the new seats in J (just in case I don't get the upgrade)

What are the chances of EK switching this flight o a 777W instead?

They shouldn't have any A345 with the new J seat. Due to the totally different number of first, business and economy class seats I wouldn't think that they would change to the 77W. However, I think the A345 J seat is better than the old 77W J seat (about half the fleet has this seat, so I would rather have it an A345, then having the chance of getting a bad 77W).

But, then again, the first class seat is ***SO**** much better. But, even though I don't know the loads of F on Dubai to Osaka, I doubt that you'd get an upgrade (unless your using miles to upgrade).
