First class offers 16 recliner seats located in the first 4 rows. The seats of the first class have 2-2 configuration. Passengers of the seats of the 1st row may feel some discomfort due to a slightly limited legroom because of the bulkhead located in front, lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and close location of the lavatory and galley in front. However, passengers of these seats may take advantage of some extra personal space because there are no reclining seats in front.


The seats of the 4th row are the seats of the last row in first class section. As there is no bulkhead behind these seats that separates first class seats from main cabin extra section passengers of these seats may be disturbed during the flight by the noise from the main cabin extra section.

Main cabin extra has 30 standard seats that are located in 5 rows per 6 seats in each. These seats are located in two sections. First section contains 3 rows. All the seats of main cabin extra offer extra legroom and these seats may be booked for an additional fee. As there is no bulkhead in front of seats of the 8th row the tray tables of these seats are located in the armrests that is why the width of these seats is reduced a little.

Behind the last row of main cabin extra 16 rows of main cabin are located. These seats have 3-3 configuration. All these seats are standard. Only 8 seats located in the last two rows have some disadvantages. The only disadvantage of the seats 32C and 32D is location of the galley and lavatory behind.
