AIR INDIA ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW - BOEING 777-300

It was a bulkhead seat (17H on 777-300ER) right behind the business class cabin. Seat recline is ok, and legroom is good. The seat width however was horrible. First reduced due to the tray table in armrest, on top of that the remote for entertainment console is also placed in armrest, and the holder pokes about an inch into the seat. Uncomfortable to get in or out of the seat, and nearly impossible to reposition yourself without getting out if you are slightly on the heavier side. Better for people who feel comfortable in 16 inch seat width. The entertainment screen is folded on a swiveling arm which folds behind your feet. It was quite hard to move it into position (joints were hard), and amazingly the joint which is supposed to holed the screen upright was super smooth! At initial deployment of the screen, I had just started watching something with my legs crossed over each other, and the screen fell (swiveled on a horizontal axis at the bottom side of the screen) and hit my shin quite hard. For the rest of the flight, I was rubbing my shin (and keeping the blanket folded many times on my leg to prevent any further injury due to the screen). I forgot to mention that the controls in the remote, which was poking my thigh, did not function. Not just on my seat, at least 6 more seats around me had the same issue. Thankfully the touchscreen menu on the personal screen was working which enabled me to watch a movie (not much more as the system response was very sluggish and music browse menu quite user unfriendly to use satisfactorily).

The personal monitors were out of service on both my wife's and mine, on the way out. On the way back the monitor's front screen was cracked and mine was not working. We were seated on the "exit" row and could not see the front main screen, as it very fuzzy and working intermittently.




AIR INDIA ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW  - 13 January 2009 by N Gandhi (USA)

Relatively new 777-200LR. The seats were comfortable for most of the flight, but towards the end of the 15 hour flight they got a little stiff. The recline was ok. Another 1-2 inches of recline would've been great. I'm 6'2" tall and found the legroom to be adequate. Not great but adequate. The aisle seat would be the best bet for tall people. The middle and window seats had some footspace taken away because there was a box mounted beneath the seat in front of the passenger.



Review:   16 April 2008

Aircraft:  Boeing 777

Name:  A Naseemuddin    (USA)

Position:  Window

Layout:   3x3x3

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  Yes

Comfort Score :  8/10

  Legroom space

The seats on the new 777-22LR's were surprisingly spacious with ample legroom. The seats are a strong point of this layout and I was pretty comfortable during my 14 hour non stop flight from US to India.

Review:   1 November 2007

Aircraft:  A310-300

Name:  Chris McQuaid    (New Zealand)

Position:  Window

Layout:   2x4x2

PAX size:  Large

Recommended :  No

Comfort Score :  5/10

  Legroom space

Two flights - Business class one way, Economy on the return flight. Business class seats on this aircraft have a permanent lean back of at least 20 degrees - I prefer travelling upright, even on long flights, so I was very uncomfortable by the end of this 4 hour trip. No individual TV screen, just one at the front of the cabin (only four rows in Business Class on this aircraft). Economy class seats are comfortable, but have very short backs - I'm only 177 cm tall, but the top of the seat only came level with my shoulders, so there was no support for my head at all.
