The seats were decent enough for my liking. Not the best in the world or anything like that. Besides, I didn't really care all that much. I cared more about the legroom and head rest.The head room leaves much to be desired though.

I flew Emirates for the first time and this will be my last time on the 777-300 with their seat configuration of adding the extra seat to each row in economy. You could not walk down the aisle without bumping into some poor person sitting in the aisle seat. Which is probably your best seat if you don't want to feel too closed in. The narrow seats made the journey almost unbearable. I flew the 14 hour leg from Houston to Dubai then 10 hours to Perth, Australia. The seats were just way to uncomfortable, narrow and very little seat cushioning. I will return my loyal patronage back to Qantas for my USA - Australia hauls!

B777-300 3x4x3 seat layout horrific. No leg room, very narrow seats. No footrests, unable to recline chair due to pain in thighs. Pain in shoulders from leaning to left into window to avoid person in middle. This seating configuration would only be bearable for a short haul flight. 6.5 hours MRU-DXB very uncomfortable. Terrible swelling in feet and ankles. Very difficult to get out of seats. Unfortunate pax in middle has nowhere to go and has to use armrests unless they want to sit with their arms above their head. As soon as person in front reclines their seat you get cross eyes from trying to watch the IFE from a distance of around 3 inches.

Seats designed for sitting with infants on laps were assigned to people without any infants whereas people with infants had ordinary legroom seats. There was no assistance from staff to sort it out. Do not recommend Emirates for those who travel with infants since bassinet seats are not guaranteed/reserved.

I'm short but wide and I have never been so uncomfortable in my life - eventually had to put the arm rest up just to breathe! When the seat is reclined your feet don't touch the floor and this makes it even more uncomfortable - worst flight of my life!

Dubai to Kuala Lumpur and had never seen a B777 with 3x4x3 configuration in economy class. It was, without a doubt, the worst flight I've ever flown as far as comfort. The flight was about 6 hours long. I thought Emirates was a top class airline. I was disappointed that they preferred to pack people in rather than aim for the comfort of its passengers. I requested an aisle seat and even the trolleys could hardly manage to make it through the aisles. Everyone had to walk sideways. I was hit and jostled constantly by people coming through (they could not help it). I am 1m73 and felt the seat already on my knees. When the person reclined, it was even more uncomfortable. I spent most of the flight standing up rather than sitting in that uncomfortable seat. To make matters worse, there was the video for the row in front of me on the floor where I should have been able to put my feet (the row in front was the exit row) so I could not even fully extend my legs! This was the first time, and I hope the last time to fly Emirates.

We deliberately chose seats at the rear of the plane (47A/B) so we had more aisle space, but we were unimpressed with the width of the seat, the unforgivable lack of a footrest, and the hardness of the seat. We are not seasoned travellers by any means, but we expect a lot better than we got. We won't be using Emirates again.

I prefer seats in the 777-300ER as I find them to be softer than the A380 and don't require the extra width offered on the bigger plane. A380 is not perfect but sitting anywhere for 14 hours isn't going to be a great experience. The best seats are at the back of A380, ideally the row ahead of the crew sleeping section as they can be reclined without inconveniencing those behind you, close proximity to the single rear toilet - if you're bored the crew often congregate at the rear and up for a chat.

The seats were horrible because when you recline the seats rises up and leave your feet dangling without a footrest. I complained to the flight-attendant and she told me yes she also finds it very uncomfortable as they took out all the footrests. For long haul flights, you will get cramp and leg soreness without footrest. I will never fly Emirates again.

This was the most uncomfortable seat I have ever encountered on an aircraft, the seat itself was ok but as there was no footrest my feet did not touch the ground so I had to plie up cushions and wrap them in the blanket to put under my feet, this was not ideal as the pains in my legs and feet spoiled the first few days of our holiday.

Appalled at the 3x4x3 configuration in Economy class flying from Dubai to Perth. Felt cramped like sardines and claustrophobic and one of the most uncomfortable flights I've ever taken. Other passengers commented on poor conditions. I will not fly them again. Most other airlines would only have a 3x3x3 config in Economy on this type of aircraft or similar.

I think it's pretty poor for a non-charter airline to have 10 abreast seating in Y class on a 777. Even Saudia has now taken the cheap move of adding an extra seat in the 777 Y cabin!

Lack of footrests causing the most horrifically uncomfortable pain in the back of the thighs. Severe swelling in ankles and legs for days after. You can't do in-flight exercises and walking up & down the aisle for 8 hours. Requested a plastic foot rest for the return flight - not available !

The seat gives you a terrible pain in the back of your thighs due to the foot rest been removed. I could not get comfortable on either sectors of my journey and found the only way around this was to sit upright. The meal tray does not slide towards you like on some other airlines which means you find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat. Big improvements are needed for this aircraft.

I don't like that you can't get your seat assigned on some legs (Dubai-Houston) until checking in. The 3-4-3 seat arrangement in Economy makes for extremely narrow seats, which create an uncomfortable flight experience. Sitting in an aisle seat means your shoulder will be banged repeatedly by anyone walking by or by passing carts. It is reason to fly another airline.

Flying Emirates was the most uncomfortable flight we have ever done. I was expecting the seat to be narrow, but the width was OK. Legroom was not too bad, but my legs dangled in mid-air the entire time, with horrible discomfort under the lower thighs. Also, the seating is incredibly hard and unyielding, just couldn't get my head comfortable and my shoulders and neck still ache 3 days post-flight. We could not sleep on the Dubai-Perth leg, as the people behind found the legroom too short and kept pushing our seats back whenever we reclined them. Terribly uncomfortable, we will never fly with them again.

Do not travel on these Emirates aircraft. The seats are excruciatingly uncomfortable as the footrests have been removed. This causes pressure behind the lower thighs since there is no other leg support. It is virtually impossible to get comfortable. After 16 hours I was exhausted. Many passengers complained - response from Emirates has been disappointing.

I had an aisle seat but was totally cramped, seat width was terrible, I was struck on the shoulder, quite violently by passing trolleys more than four times. My knees touched the seat in front and of course the person in front reclined his seat making the screen virtually unviewable and the meals tray inaccessible.
