I've flown EVA in Business Class between Seattle and Taipei. In summary, while the seats were a little cramped, the F/A service was fantastic. Seats: I can't remember exactly but the pitch was somewhere between 45 and 50". Fabric Seats with an in-arm video monitor and about 8 channels of content. Fo...Jump to post
DL has 4 ex-ATA's 757 aircraft that are used for Latin America Routes (not necessarily Caribbean Routes). These aircraft have 22 F and 156 Y seats. Each of the 22 F seats have 45" of pitch and leg rests. They are identical to newer F/C seats except with the addition of the legrest and additional rec...Jump to post

No, the 777's remained unchanged in Business Elite Seat count as a result of the BusinessElite downsizing, however due to the overhead crew rest on the 3 777P aircraft the 777's lost 2 seats (52 down to 50). There is no plan to reduce capacity on the 777's.Jump to post

no, 7008 is the sole 3x3x3 aircraft without overhead crew rest. It came delivered from Boeing with the 3x3x3 after it was decided to stop taking delivery of the overhead crew rest due to post 9/11 cost cutting. 7008 was already loaded into the firing order at Boeing with the Master Change approved b...Jump to post

Jeff, its too early to tell you which specific aircraft out of a type will be on that flight. Aircraft rotations are only designated at most, up to three days ahead of time, and even then, they are subject to change. Ask again on tuesday or wednesday for better information.
a lot of pessimism on this thread...can't help but say that I plan on saying
Song SUNK Blue
quite shortly, however, I believe that at the end of the day Song will stop the market erosion of the North-South Corridor from heading to Jetblue and there will eventually be a duopoly.
6717 and all the newer aircraft were chosen to maintain a higher reliability on the turn times. Older metal have poor reliability records. Song does not have any tight seat pitch. EVERY seat on song has 33" of pitch or more. JetBlue is a 32" cabin except for the last row which is 31". Song's exit ro...Jump to post
