First class consists of 2 rows of angle-flat seats that have 2-2-2 configuration. The seats of the 1st row are first reserved for passengers with babies as these seats have bassinet locations. Close location of the galleys and lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of these seats.


Business class has 42 angle-flat seats located in two sections. Both sections include 3 rows of seats each per 7 seats in the row.

Because of the bulkhead position the seats of the 6th row have limited legroom. Passengers travelling with infants are often seated on the seats of the 6th row as they have bassinet locations.

Proximity of the lavatories and galleys is the main disadvantage of the seats of the 8th row.

The second section of the business class seats is located behind exit row. The seats of the 9th row have bassinet locations. Other passengers tend to congregate near these seats while waiting to use lavatories causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.

The only disadvantage of the seats of the 11th row is the noise that is coming from more crowded economy class.

Economy class may accommodate 213 passengers.

The best seats of the economy class are considered the seats of the 16th row as these seats offer some extra space for passengers’ legs. Passengers with babies are often seated on these seats as they have bassinet locations.

Proximity of the lavatories and limited recline are the main disadvantages of the seats of the 26th row.

Passengers tend to gather in the area of the seats of the 27th row to visit lavatories and thus causing inconvenience to passengers of these seats. Protrusion of the exit door restricts legroom of the seats 27A and 27K. The other seats of the 27th row, i.e. the seats 27B, 27DEFG and 27J on the contrary offer extra legroom. The seats 27DEFG have bassinet locations for passengers with babies.

Due to missing seats behind other passengers and crew members tend to bump into the seats 38D and 38G. The main disadvantage of the seats 39DEF is limited legroom.

Because of the curvature of the airplane all A and K seats may feel cramped.

Close location of the lavatory and galleys may represent problem to passengers of the seats 42D and 42F.

Limited recline and proximity of the lavatory and galley make the seats 41AB, 42JK and 43DEF bad seats.
