    Qantas commences revamp of B747-400 aircraft:)

    Qantas has kicked-off the revamp of the first of nine Boeing B747-400 aircraft, which will be given an Airbus A380 makeover fitted with enhanced inflight entertainment systems and A380 style seats.

    The retrofitted aircraft will be reconfigured to feature a total of 364 seats, with 58 in business class, 36 in premium economy and 270 in economy. Panasonic AVOD IFE systems will also be fitted onto the plane as well as a self-service snack bar in the economy class cabin.

    “The new interiors will vastly improve the flying experience for tens of thousands of Qantas passengers every year,” said Alan Joyce, Qantas chief executive.

    “Installing A380 style interiors on these B747 aircraft will provide passengers with more style, more comfort, more space and more entertainment.”

    I remember reading a while ago (can't remember where) that they would remove F from most/all of the 747s. I wonder if removing F from 747s will mean increased J award availability.
