    I have booked CX873 departs on July 20th. The aircraft type shows 744, but the seat map shows two rows in first (1, 2 ADK) which I believe is a 777 configuration. It automatically assigned me seat 1A and the rest of the seats are grayed out?

    Any guess what's going on here?

    Where are you seeing 744? I see the 777-300ER assigned on that day.

    CX873/872 will be operated daily by the 77Ws from July 1st->Aug 31st. So yes you are scheduled to be on the 77W which has D seats on both rows of the F layout, unlike F on the 744s where it only exist on the 4th row.

    Thanks for the reply. I did a mock reservation and it says 77W. But on the screen of my reservation from CX, it shows 744. I guess that it may originally scheduled 744, and got stuck there even the seat map shows 77W now. I was looking forward to experience the 744 F as my first international F flight. Oh, well.

    It's a small disappointment I hope. You really can't go wrong in CX F. I just did my first 77W F with them. My husband and I were the only "passengers" (there was a pilot as well, but he slept the whole time, crew didn't pay him much mind). Having now done both 747 and 77W F I like them both for their own reasons. :)

    Just a heads up update that CX873/872 will continue to use the 77Ws even after Aug 31st. So beginning July 1st, only CX879/870 (SFO flights) and CX837/838 (YVR flights) will be the only NA flights to still use the 744s.
