Seat map of the Airbus A330-300 (333)
This version of Airbus A330-300 may transport 266 passengers in three classes: upper class, premium economy and economy.
The upper class consists of 33 open suites that have 180 degrees recline. Most of the open suites have 1-2-1 configuration. Proximity of the galley may be bothersome for passengers of the seats of the 1st row. The length of the seats 1DG in total bed length is 5 inches shorter than other seats of this class.
In the end of the upper class section a bar is located. Close location of the seats of the 8-9th row to it may cause discomfort to passengers. As the seats 9A and 9K have no windows these seats are considered bad seats.
Behind the exit row 48 seats of premium economy class are located. Passengers of the seats 18AC, 20DFG and 20HK will take advantage of extra legroom thanks to position of the bulkhead. Other passengers tend to gather in the area of these seats while waiting to use lavatories causing discomfort to passengers of these seats. As the tray tables are built-in the armrests the width of these seats is reduced a little. Also these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing.
Proximity of the galley may represent a problem for passengers of the seat 19C.
The seats 21A and 21K are missing windows.
The only possible disadvantage of the seats of the last 25th row of the premium economy class is the noise that may come from more crowded economy class.
Economy class has 185 standard seats that are divided into two classes. The best seats here are the seats of the 40th row as they may have extra space for passengers’ legs. However, these seats are narrower than standard and have no floor storage during take-off and landing.
Close location of the lavatories may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 45AC, 46D, 46HK, 47D, 47G and for passengers of the seats of the 48th row. Limited recline is another disadvantage of the seats 45AC, 45HK and 48DEFG.
Behind another exit row the second section of economy class seats is located. Passengers of the seats 49DEFG will feel comfortable thanks to extra legroom provided by the position of the bulkhead. But these seats are often bumped by other passengers and crew members with service carts that use this area to cross over the aisle. Also these seats are narrower than standard as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable.
The seats AC and HK of the rows 50-55 are designated as preferred seats to reserve which an extra fee should be paid. However, the seats 50AC and 50HK are narrower than standard.
As the seats 61C and 61H jut out into the aisle, on the one hand they offer some extra legroom but on the other are often bumped by other passengers passing by.
Close location of the galley and lavatories may cause discomfort to passengers of the seats 64AC, 64D, 64G, 64HK and 65DFG. In addition the seats 64AC, 64HK and 65DFG are less reclining than standard that is why these seats are considered bad seats.
