How many Qantas A330 are fitted with the new business suite?

I've just noticed my seat selection on my NRT-BNE flight next Feb is in the new 1-2-1 configuration. I've heard similar changes for SYD-MNL and PER-AKL flights. My most recent flight BNE-SIN in Jun was also in new configuration. Has Qantas almost finished upgrading all their A330s? If not, does anyone know where are they up to now and when do we expect a whole fleet upgrade?

Worth noting that there are A330-200's appearing internationally... but I understand what your saying.

Not expected to finish A330 fleet until late next year. 

There are currently:

5 x A330-200 refurbished

4 x A330-300 refurbished

Ok, thanks. So the chances of scoring the old config is still pretty high....

QANTAS quoted 18 months to refit the A330 fleet of which approx 7 months has already passed so provided I can still count they should all be complete by end of June next year. 

My flight last night was originally on an older configuration but about 2 months ago changed to the new one.  I assume this is because the plane had been refitted and the booking system updated after this was done. 

Really liked the new business suite, my 4A seat was private and very comfortable.  The only improvement would be an adjustable angle on the entertainment display. I would like to try this on a longer (10+) hour flight to see if I came away feeling the same as my 4 1/2 hour domestic journey.
