how far has VA progressed with the refit of the A330 new Business seat programme? If they are on schedule it must be close to finished. Anyone know ?

They have 6 A332s and last I heard were running a few days behind in the upgrade. Either way, I believe they will be pretty close to achieving their 31/10 target.

Much easier for them to achieve their refit, it's only the Business cabin and galley that is have works done. Where as QF are doing the entire cabin, and possibly a 'D' check or some other major maintenance that takes a few months

Not quite, many QF 332s just had business reworked with new covers, iPads in Y.

Yikes I'm a QF flyer too, there wasn't any hostility intended. You downvoters are fiercely Qantas-loyal!

people have 'downvoted' your previous post because the info you state is incorrect. ALL QFs 332 are getting a completely new business class..you stated, "many QF332s just had business reworked with new covers..."

Business reworked. With new covers, iPads in Y. A little punctuation goes a long way!

Yusuf. Keen to understand how your calculator works!. Unless I am missing something very basic, 3 out of 6 is 50%!
