The seat itself was not bad, except for being dirty, however, the IFE was broken for approximately 30-40 people in economy. Some of BA's 777 are very old and are showing it with broken equipment.

I am over six feet tall so booked a word traveller plus cabin seat. Overall very good and one of the few seats where I have been able to stretch out and even cross my legs.

I used to find that British Airways WT seats had very little leg room, but this seems to have improved. The seat was comfortable for a 6'00" guy on a 10.5 hour flight from LHR to SFO. I slept a bit on a day flight and had a good view of the screen (which had a lot of movie and TV choices)

Travelled WT+ and WT on BA on Toronto flights. The seats in WT+ are comfortable and recline well. It is difficult to judge legroom as we were in a cot position on both flights. In terms of comfort WT+ has the edge over WT as we found the seats harder in WT and more difficult to get comfortable which don't help on an 8 hour overnight flight.

World Traveller Plus cabin. Isle seat next to window seat has restricted foot space due to entertainment electronics under seat in front, so swapped for window. Not a bad seat, and fine for daytime long haul flights. But sleeping less good. Width feels less than Virgin and Qantas premium economy seats - BA fits the same number across a 777 as the others have in a 747. No AVOD and screen is incredibly small by today's standards. Power socket is low voltage type. Looking old.

Euro Traveller, OSL-LHR. After flying a lot of low-cost airlines, this was a good experience. I had seat 6F with the middle seat empty. Would have felt a bit cramped with a full flight. However, the seat width and legroom was good. Checked in online. Fast and easy.

LHR-NBO The flight was not full, and there were plenty of free seats, so I had a row of three to myself. If, however, I had been on a full flight I would have found it very cramped.

9 hour flight from LGW to Orlando on outbound and 7 hours on the way back. Flight was comfortable although as always a little extra legroom in economy would go a long way to enhancing the economy flying experience. Flight out was longer but felt more comfortable on way back, sat in row 22A on outbound and 21D on return. IFE was sufficient and kept me occupied!

Seat was very tight on width and i am 6ft with a 34inch waist. Space was okay when forward seat was not reclined but when it was it felt very close and you could not read or use you table. In flight entertainment wasn't fully working either and they made no announcement about this. Seat head rest were poor.


 

Review:   20 March 2008

Aircraft:  Boeing 747-400

Name:  G Greenwood   (Hong Kong)

Position:  Middle

Layout:   3x4x3

PAX size:  X-Large

Recommended :  No

Comfort Score :  1/10

Very Poor  Legroom space

I spent 12 hours on BA 031 seat 50B sandwiched between 2 others and had much difficulty getting in and out of my seat because there wasn't enough legroom to easily get past the heavyweight sleeper who sat in the aisle seat and who really liked to spread out. Each person in the row of seats I was in were broad shouldered. The person in the window seat in front had to step on the seats over the middle person to get out of their space.

Very Poor  Seat recline
