    So CGK is losing JAL Suite for ~6 months. They have been downgraded to Solo and Shell Flat at the beginning of this year for a month already.

    Regular downgrade of 1-2 months is usual but this is the first time I saw it happens for 6 months. Could it be they are doing some fleet upgrade on the 773? Seat, IFE, wi-fi, etc? Of course this could simply be nothing more than major maintenance of couple of their 773s are due

    Yeah I was wondering the same thing reading your post. Some of the F Solo interiors are looking a bit tired.

    Last year I got the last F solo seat available on a flight when on whim I decided to upgrade at checkin. The tv screen produced nothing but static except in one precise position. Lucky that position was viewable from my seat! I guess they were not expecting to have anyone in that seat.

    But unlikely for new C seats unless they move their schedule ahead...I am guessing IFE/wi-fi upgrade?
