Does anyone have any idea as to what the refreshed interior looks like of for Business for VH-OJM/OEB, given that's what QF annouced earlier this year?

Reportedly similar to the rest of the fleet - so I assume red seat coverings with ribs. But haven't seen any photos, and unsure if it extends into old F

Don't get exited. The new seat coverings are almost identical except that the covering now prevents the headrest from being flexible (bendable) in anyway. There is now mood lighting but they went cheap by putting in lights that change from just white to blue to off in an instant (i.e. No nice gradual changes in colours). From what I could see the old first section looks identical from behind with the navy colored shell. Every other aspect of the seat itself including the entertainment screen is the same and has not changed.

At least you get the blue light, love the color change lighting on some airlines.

It was flagged as a mini refresh only so I wasn't expecting much.

To change the IFE units you would literally have to replace every seat and that's an expensive and time consuming exercise for an aircraft that will be gone within 12 months.

OEB reportedly also has a new toaster and espresso machine, whilst OJM is yet to receive.

So the old F cabin has been refurbished?
