Status of AF 77W Interiors

Sat Nov 23, 2019 9:06 pm

AF is still flying their 77Ws with the old business class seats. When are they planning to upgrade the interiors with the new business class seats that are on the 772s?
I am looking to fly BOM-CDG in February and the seatmap shows the 77W on the route in a 2x3x2 config.
Have they even started refurbishing the 77Ws?

I believe the four class birds have been refurbished. Those are the F-GSQ* birds with first class. Not sure about any three class birds yet.

Not quite all the F-GSQ planes have the "best" seat as they call it. Some are also in the high density vacation configuration.

Also some of the F-GZN series are slowly being updated. Seems to be an overall work in progress at AF.

12 B77W are configured 42J / 24W / 315Y .They still have the old Business with the 2x3x2 config. The retrofit should start early 2020.

I believe that almost the entire fleet has the updated Y seats. Not sure about the 340s, given that I think all of them left are the joon birds.

No. F-GSQD has the new seats in Y and the brand new Panasonic IFE, with the large TV screens.

And for your information, the first 77W 14J version retrofited with the new interior is F-GSQT and will be released in a few days.
The new cabin configuration is 14J / 28W / 430Y, instead of 14J / 32W / 422 Y.

The seats in J a the same than in the brand new A350, the Zodiac OPTIMA, with a 1 x 2 x 1 layout.
The other 11 Aircraft in this config will be retrofited before Sept. 2020
