Do all AF 772s/77Ws have now the latest AVOD system?

Yes. It's been a while now (unless I misunderstood which "latest AVOD system" you were talking about)

The same as A380.
What about the new C Class?

Quoting LY777 (Thread starter):

The entire AF fleet of B777 always had AVOD IFE system

AF A380 are equipped with their own THALES IFE system. The B777 will not get it.

The new B77W (F-GZNH / NI / NJ / NK) are equipped now with the new PANASONIC IFE system, that will progressively replace this sh*t of ROCKWELL & COLLINS system.

Quoting LY777 (Reply 2):

The last B77W have the new J seat (F-GZNH / NI / NJ / NK).
The 10 B772ER that were reconfigured without First Class also have the new J seats (F-GSPA / PB / PI / PL / PM / PN / PO / PP / PQ / PZ).

10 A332 (out of 15) also have the new J seats and the 7 B744 that will remain active in the fleet will also get them in 2012.
No A343 is currently reconfigured with the new J seats.

So, all the other 777s have the ROCKWELL & COLLINS system?

Which 744s are now refurbished?

Unfortunately yes ... for the moment ...

Quoting LY777 (Reply 5):

They all went thru the first stage of renovation.

The second stage of renovation will begin early 2012 for F-GEXB (new J seats + new AVOD Panasonic IFE + PTVs in Y on the main deck.)
Will follow F-GITD, F-GITE, F-GITF.
F-GITH / TI / TJ will be the last ones to receive the new J seats later in 2012. As they are already equipped with AVOD & PTVs in all classes, they will also keep the R & C IFE system and won't be fitted with the Panasonic.

F-GLZM is equipped with the new J-seat, making it the first A343 that has it. All other A343's are to be refitted before November 2012.

OK, thanks for the info.
I am a bit surprised that AF kept GEXB as it is the older 744 in their fleet (with GEXA) IIRC.

And what was the first stage of renovation? New lavs?
