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.
Sorry and thank you Reeves25, should have been six planes

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!

3 out of 6 aircraft done so...
[grabs calculator] you have a 60% percent chance if flying on an A330!
Yusuf. Keen to understand how your calculator works!. Unless I am missing something very basic, 3 out of 6 is 50%!
One is currently being refitted- 3/5= 60%
