Then there was the 744 zone A from hell
So why was this the A-Zone from hell?
I might be out of line with asking so many project related questions, but I'm curious to know what is so special about this reconfig that makes it the A-Zone from hell.
I'm also not sure what your starting configuration looked like, so forgive me if these questions sound stupid....
I'm assuming you might have had to add seat tracks for the center seats, with accompanying floor board modifications. Any further changes to the floor structure? Or adding of seat tracks on LH
Any load issues with the amount of seats? Obviously a structural load analysis had to be done, but did it lead to structural modifications of the floor structure?
Adding sidewall disconnects or center floorboxes wouldn't be too much of a hassle, so did you encounter any drama's with this? (apart from maybe adding a sidewall disconnect at those awkward locations where the flight control cables run). Were there further issues with IFE/Seat Power/ (PC
Reworking the Dado's? Was that because of something installed in the previous configuration or a problem that occurred along the way? I'm assuming that reworking of the Dado's means modifying the existing panels and not a removal & replacement.
Rework PSU's? Again, is this a modification of the existing PSU's, or just shuffling around and installation of new PSU units because of the seat layout change?
Bin removals/installations? (with additional oxy/gasper/psu drama's?)
Also, is there still easy access to go down to the avionics bay? The seats look like they are close to the access panel and would make it very narrow for someone to go down..... Might seem like a stupid question but it was just bugging me to know since I don't have the cad file to see for myself.....
Sorry for all the questions Tod, but I'm still a grasshopper in the field of reconfigs and the best way for me to learn is from the experiences of the guys that have been working in the industry for many years.....
So I would appreciate if you could inform me of the major problems you incurred and what the solution was.
