Air Berlin Business Class Update

Mon Dec 26, 2011 11:02 pm

Hi,

Does anyone know if Air Berlin has plans to update their J class on the A330s? I have found several sites going back a couple years mentioning that the upgrades were coming in the near future, but did any of those plans ever come to fruition?

Also, does anyone know when they might join Oneworld? Has an official date been set?

The A332 will be re-fitted successively from Nov 2011 on. The A333 won't receive the new business class seats for the time being. I will try to get the schedule for you, when what reg is due for the refit.

No official date relesaed yet.
I read "somewhere" in a report plans were for first quarter 2012 but if that´s true we should see an official press release soon.
Personally I´d be surprised if they would join before june (although I´d be happier if it happens earlier).

Thanks! I guess that means at least one should already have the new seats?

True - Kingfisher's date of 10 Feb announced on 19 Dec, so that was less than 2 months notice.
