Air China Seat Plan, Strange First Class Position?

Sun Dec 12, 2010 6:44 pm

Hi, was looking at Air China web site and came on this.

Air China


Unusual place to have First Class.
Does any other airline copy this, and which routes do they use this config on pls?
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Likely to be due to the F seats not fitting into the shape of the 747's nose, whereas the C class ones will squeeze in.

Some of BA's 744s have World Traveller Plus in front of Club World...

Exactly what I was thinking! Although I have never flown an A/C with that specific type of layout, it would be rather neat to know that your sitting more aft than a first class passenger...

If I am not mistaken this plane gets used for the PEK-NYC and maybe LAX route and perhaps some European routes.

The JFK route is assigned the 744.

SFO& LAX use the 74E.

SAA had first class on the upper deck on 747SP for a while, business class in the nose on the main deck.
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...
