What he liked:
· Spacious seat with lots of storage space · Turn-down service with a mattress that is firm on one side and soft on the other · Very private and large seats (25" wide and 6' 2" in fully flat mode), and the aisle seats having dedicated space for a laptop · Huge personal entertainment screen, measuring 23" · Small 'Magic V' remote controller is like a touchscreen smartphone and has flight time remaining displayed at all times · A hook specifically for stowing the noise-cancelling headsets, and several power outlets for your devices · Electronic divider for those traveling on their own or who want a little privacy
What he didn't like:
· At times the window seat could be claustrophobic · Armrest lowers when seat reclines, so elbow support is only available in the upright position · Aisle seats have no access to window and, with no channel of aircraft cameras, there's no way to whats happening outside · Touchscreen is not as responsive, lagging at times with shaky scrolling
Chicago, New York, and LA are all on the list to benefit from these seats on the airline's fresh batch of Boeing 777-300ERs. Keep a look-out for them and these new seats right now.
