BA 747-436 former configuration question

Fri Dec 02, 2016 4:20 pm

On the former F14 C38 W36 Y263 (2000-2007?) BA 747 configuration, does anyone recall how Club World was set up? Was it 20 on upper deck and remainder on main deck?
Also, are any 747s still operating in the F14 C70 W30 Y185 configuration?
Thanks for any replies.
Cheers.

Yes config was 20 CW upper deck,

14F, 18J, 36W, and 263Y main deck.
First was as it is now. B-Zone was all club, WTP was between doors 2 and about 2 rows shy of doors 3 and the rest was WT.

I'm not sure about the Hi-J question. I have a suspicion they are all gone now following the Super Hi-J programme but I could be wrong.

They are, it's either 86J or 52J, the 70J config has been gone for several months now.

There were 24 frames in the old 'Hi J' configuration. Eighteen were reconfigured to the new 'Super Hi J' configuration. Additionally all the seats of these 18 were fitted with the new Panasonic eX3 IFE System and all their cabins were re-carpeted and re-curtained. Their W and Y Class seats were also fitted with new foams and covers matching those already fitted in the BA 380, 77W and 787 fleets. Finally their Y Class seats were fitted with a Universal Power Socket and a USB Port.

The other six former 'Hi J' BA 744s, G-BNLK, 'LN, 'LO, 'LP and G-CIVM and 'VO, were reconfigured to the pre-existing BA 'Mid J' cabin configuration. None of the six were fitted with new carpets / curtains / seat foams / covers or IFE System.

Seat Guru still has a map of the old J70 setup if needed.

I have a 1991 BA timetable, which shows what is presumably the initial BA 744 config. (The fleet total shows 9 in fleet, with 12 on order!)

Cabin A - main deck 18F
Cabin B - main deck 28C
Cabin C - main deck 46C
Cabin D - main deck 94Y
Cabin E - main deck 134Y
Upper deck 66Y

Total 386

Re the C class total above for the upper deck, 20 seems a very low number; it would usually be around 30-40 for J on the upper deck. Are you sure this is correct?

3 rows forward of the upper deck emergency exit and 2 rows aft, 4 abreast so yes 20 seats. It's pretty average. CX 22 J seats, Qantas 24 J seats, LH 22 J seats, KLM 20 J seats.
