THE LOWER DECK
The lower deck of the Airbus A380-800 contains only seats of the economy class. There are totally 415 seats here that are divided into 4 sections separated from each other with exit rows.

First section contains 9 rows of seats. Because of the exit door protrusion the seats 40A and 40K have limited space for passengers’ legs. In addition these seats have no windows that is why these seats are considered bad seats. The other seats of this row and namely, the seats 40BC and 40HJ are on the contrary the best seats as they offer extra legroom.

Due to position of the bulkhead the seats 43DEFG have restricted legroom. Location of the stairs in front is also a disadvantage. For passengers traveling with babies these seats have bassinet location.

The noise from the galleys and lavatories located behind as well as limited recline are the main disadvantages of the seats of the 48th row.

The second section of economy class seats consists of 15 rows: 14 of them have 3-4-3 configuration and 1 row has 3-3 configuration.

Passengers traveling with babies are often seated on the seats of the 49th row as they have bassinet locations. These seats have limited legroom because of the bulkhead position. The noise from the galleys located in front may be also bothersome.

Passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 62C, 62DEFG, 62H, 63ABC and 63HJK while waiting to use lavatories and thus causing some discomfort to passengers of these seats. Another disadvantage of the seats 52DEFG, 63ABC and 63HJK is limited recline.

11 rows are located in the third section of economy class seats.

Thanks to the exit row located in front the seats of the 64th row have extra legroom. However, proximity of the lavatories may cause inconvenience to passengers of these seats. The seats 64DEFG have bassinet locations.

Due to missing seat in front the seat 69D offers extra legroom.

Location of the galleys behind may represent a problem for passengers of the seats 73C, 73DEFG, 73H and of the seats of the 74th row. Also, the seats 73DEFG, 74 ABC and 74 HJK may be less reclining than standard.

The last section of economy class may accommodate 88 passengers. Passengers of the seats of the 75th row will take advantage of extra legroom. At the same time location of the galleys in front may cause discomfort. For passengers with babies the seats 75DEFG have bassinet locations.

As there are no seats in front the seats 76A and 76K offer extra space for passengers legs. These seats are considered good seats.

The only disadvantage of the seats 82CD and 82GH is location of the lavatories behind.

Limited recline and proximity of the lavatories make the seats of the 83th row bad seats.
