No Change to Premium and Economy in A330-300 Business Class Upgrade.

We have been contacted by several people regarding reports of a new 31J/222Y A330-300 configuration. The A330-300 fleet will have their Business Class seats changed from the 1-2-1 configuration Dreamsuites to a 1-1-1 configuration using the same version of the Upper Class Suite as used on the Boeing 787-9 fleet. This will result in a reduction of Business Class seats from 32 to 31. All seatmaps going forward using this new configuration show the Premium Economy and Economy Class cabins being unchanged, giving a configuration of 31J/48W/185Y.
