Seat map of the Airbus A340-600 (346)
Upper class consists of 16 rows of flat bed seats. Most of them have 1-1-1 configuration. All middle seats here do not have overhead air vents that is why passengers of these seats can get hot during the flight.
The only disadvantage of the seat 2K is close location of the lavatory.
The best seats in the upper class is considered the seat 8G as it offers extra legroom. However, passengers of this seat cannot control the air ventilation.
Noise that is coming from the bar and lavatories may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats of the 16th and 17th row.
38 recliner seats are located in the premium economy class. There are 5 rows of seats here that have 2-3-2 configuration and 1 row with 3 seats. Passengers traveling with infants are often seated on the seats 18AC and 18HK as these seats have bassinet locations. These seats have extra space for passengers’ legs provided by bulkhead position. Among disadvantages of the seats of the 18th row are: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing, proximity of the galleys and reduced width of these seats as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.
All A,C,F and K seats of the rows 19-23 have limited under seat storage and legroom because entertainment equipment is stored here. The seats 19A and 19K do not have windows.
Close location of the lavatories may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 22ACD, 22GHK and 23DFG. Limited recline is another disadvantage of the seats 22AC, 22HK and 23DFG.
Economy class may transport 233 passengers in two sections. The seats 31DEFG are first reserved for passengers with infants as these seats have bassinet locations. However, close location of the lavatories, reduced width of the seats and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing may cause inconvenience to passengers of these seats. The other seats of this row, i.e. the seats 31AC and 31HK have the same disadvantages. These seats have extra legroom.
All AGK seats of the economy class have less under seat storage space and restricted legroom because of the entertainment equipment stored here. The seats 32A and 32K are missing windows.
Virgin Atlantic designates the seats 33DEFG, 34DEFG and HK seats of the rows 33-36 as preferred seats as they have extra legroom due to configuration of the airplane. An extra charge should be paid to reserve these seats.
During overnight flights proximity of the stairs may cause inconvenience to passengers of the seats 41C, 41H, 42C and 42H because crew members open and close the door to the stairwell.
Presence of the staircase to the crew rest area limits the legroom of the seats 43DEFG. Also these seats are narrower than standard and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.
The seats 43AC and 44HK may have reduced seat pitch. Close location of the lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of these seats and the seats 44D, 44G, 45D, 45G and 46DEFG.
The seats 46DEFG are less reclining than standard. As water fountains and newspapers are located behind these seats other passengers tend to gather in this area causing inconvenience to passengers of these seats.
The second section of economy class seats is located behind the exit row. 10 rows have 2-4-2 configuration, 4 rows – 2-3-2 configuration and the last row contains 3 seats.
Other passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats of the 51st row causing discomfort to passengers of these seats. As the tray tables are in the armrests the width of these seats is slightly reduced. Lack of floor storage during take-off and landing is another disadvantage of these seats. As the emergency door protrudes inside the legroom of the seats 51A and 51K is restricted. The seats 51C, 51DEFG and 51H have extra legroom that is why passengers of these seats will feel comfortable here. Passengers with babies are often seated on the seats 51DEFG.
Due to configuration of the airplane the seats 53AC, 53HK and 54AC, 54HK offer extra space for passengers’ legs. An extra charge should be paid to reserve these seats.
As the seats 60D and 60G jut out into the aisle they are often bumped by service carts and passengers passing by.
The seats 61A and 61K are considered good seats as they have extra legroom. However, these seats are narrower than standard as the tray tables are built-in the armrests.
Passengers of the seats 61C and 61H will take advantage of extra legroom. Other passengers and crew members passing by tend to bump into these seats.
The tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable and reducing the width of the seats 61DFG. The TVs of these seats are misaligned as they are located on the seats in front.
Proximity of the lavatories is disadvantage of the seats 64AC, 64D, 64G, 64HK and of the seats of the last 65t row. Limited recline makes the seats 64AC, 64HK and 65DFG bad seats.
