All AA 767s are retrofitted. Stil 2-2-2 so Swiss is better
What do you mean to say by "retrofitted", did they renovate it?

The retrofitted 767s are lie-flat, yes, but I don't believe PG is correct that they're all already retrofitted.

ETA: AFAIK, the only routes with the new retro-fitted 767 are JFK-ZRH and JFK-MXP. JFK-MAD and JFK-BCN are coming this month and September, respectively.

Right. They definitely are not all retrofitted.

Thanks, this looks good!!
So as you said this is how it looks the flight NYC-ZUR, right? How can we make this sure? is it confirmed by AA which routes are the new layout?

All 767-300's are retrofitted http://www.aa.com/i18n/utility/new_business.jsp

Thats what they have now. I believe they were talking about the Newest one. The one that would be 1-2-1

I've already answered your question.

Whether you choose to believe it is up to you.

My friend just posted this pic of his Elal plane (showing support of how elal is still flying right now) but anyway, it looks like on the right side, the big letter B might be spelling out "Business". Is this Elal's J class? The seats can't really be that small and no personal TVs??

The 777 has the continental biz seats. The 763's have the United rear facing biz seats. I think the 777 is better, but not big of a difference, they're both lie flat.
