EMIRATES ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW  - 27 May 2010 by R Rajan (Philippines)

AIRCRAFT :       B777-300ER

PAX SIZE :   Medium

LAYOUT : 3x4x3

POSITION :   Aisle

PAX RATING :    4/10

RECOMMENDED :  No

FOOTREST

The lack of a footrest made it uncomfortable even for a tall guy like me. I am lean, but I think these seats will be uncomfortable for a stocky person. The 3x4x3 is a bad idea for long haul economy flights (mine was a 9 hour flight) - you end up feeling like really being packed in a can of sardines. The service wasn't the best either.

Terrible experience, flying from DXB into JFK. They need to re-work their seating configuration or their seating dimensions. No footrests makes it even worse.

The seats are far too cramped for my liking and seat configuration on long-haul flights is terrible.. Like most other reviewers, I would say they should put the foot rest back! Also the seats could be a little softer!

Economy seat at back of cabin where layout is 2x4x2. I am over 1.9m tall and had no problem on the flight from LHR to DXB. If there was a criticism it was that the seat cushions are quite firm.




EMIRATES ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW  - 11 October 2009 by Anders Rundgren (Sweden)

Wide and comfortable seat. For a 1.86 tall person like me, it's usually a must to get exit or bulkhead seat, but on the A380 it felt good even on a normal seat.

Has to be the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in on a plane. Looking at other reviews it appears that the removal of foot rests is the cause of the problem. Inflight entertainment system was excellent.

Terribly uncomfortable seat. The airline has taken out the footrests for which the seat was designed. The result is that your feet hang in mid air in any position except bolt upright. Trying to doze is rewarded by pain in the backs of your thighs from the pressure from the seat. Avoid at all costs

I've flown Emirates for many years now, and I'm just about to switch allegiances. My work demands I travel extensively on long haul every year (last year 13 return flights from NZ to the Middle East, Asia and the US), and the recent decision by Emirates to remove the seat rests has now made the seats the most uncomfortable of any airline I travel with. I can't over-emphasize how uncomfortable these seats are (I'm 5'10").

The problem starts with the 3-4-3 seat configuration in all B777's by adding an extra seat to the normal 3-3-3 configuration. That reduces a lot of seat comfort and legroom. If the flight is 7 or 8 hours then you have a big problem. By the end of the flight you feel so tired and your feet pain for at least two days.
