Emirates have tried to squeeze the last drop out of the orange in their economy seats and seating plan in their B777. The 3x4x3 configuration is too tight for this aircraft and makes the aisle just wide enough for the food cart. If in any aisle seat you will be hit every time they come past. The seat width and legroom is fine if you are an 8 year old child but for someone who is 6" 1' it is not a pleasurable experience.

I was disappointed with the 3x4x3 configuration on the aircraft. The services provided by the crew was pleasant, the PTV was nice, but what is bothering me the most are the seat width and access in/out of the seat. The seat width was really narrow and basically you would make contact with the passenger beside you all the time. And accessing in/out of the seat will disturb the passenger beside you, which probably both of you will need to stand up for you to access out/in. The aisles are also narrow due to the 3x4x3 configuration. I really dislike this configuration.

Very narrow seats and aisles. Very uncomfortable if your neighbour is large. In the aisle seat you are continually knocked by staff passing up and down aisle. The good legroom is gained by reducing the cushioning on the seat so they soon become uncomfortable on a long flight. and if the person in front reclines the seat the advantage of the legroom is sacrificed.

Auckland to Brisbane. We had chosen seats 52J and 52K bulkhead seats in the first row of the second economy class cabin which did offer more leg room. They are located next to the galley so you get a lot of noise from that area. This did not bother me at all, but on a much longer flight, if you wanted to sleep, may have been a bad choice. The hot towels were very welcome, and also the drink service was efficient. When the evening meal was served, we seemed to wait ages for the cart to appear at our row. We were offered the choice offered on the menu of Beef or Salmon, and then immediately told the Salmon had run out some time ago. Then why offer it? Our row was not offered tea or coffee during the meal service. Just prior to landing the female flight attendant decided to tidy her hair, and apply make-up in the galley mirror which took some time, she should have done this out of sight of passengers. I think Singapore and Thai in my opinion offer much more for economy passengers.

I am 175 cm tall and weight 78 kg. FRA via DXB to PER and back. Seat comfort is comparable to a cheap charter airline. I cannot understand how Emirates has such a good performance rating. We were so disappointed to Emirates because of the service and the quality of seating. I am sure we will choose for our next longhaul flight SIA again. SIA and THAI has a better Service and better seating comfort.

I have made many long haul flights out of Washington DC, including some 17 hour flights to Narita, Japan, but this 14 hour flight was by far the worst and most uncomfortable journey I have ever made. I usually get up frequently to help with leg swelling but sitting in the middle of the 4 pack of seats was nearly impossible getting out, even for me as a 5'7" thin build woman. General back pain and discomfort for the entire flight. I wish I could say the entertainment made up for it, but it was in no way worth it over other comparative flying experiences I have had on airlines like British Airways and Qatar. I was generally looking forward to flying Emirates after hearing great things, but do your body a favor and avoid this economy flight if at all possible.

I really don't know how all the other airlines have much more space than this one. First of all, how can they be number 1 airline when economy seats are totally uncomfortable? Configuration 3x4x3 is too much because as a passenger you don't have enough space and also for cabin crew who are struggling to pass with all service trolleys. Also, between the services you need to be careful not to be hit by cart on - knee, leg or shoulder. As someone mentioned before, it's so poor ambience when you see full cabin with all the luggage, bags and poor cabin crew who don't have space for all this stuff. What are they willing to do just to have more money?

The A380 is great and Economy class BKK - Hong Kong is really acceptable. Good food and decent entertainment, but they didn't offer wine and passengers didn't know you had to ask for it. The one thing I didn't like was the quality of the headphones and the background hiss was awful, however I also have a hearing problem, but this was terrible. I ended up watching a film on the laptop.

We flew with A380. The seats with this headrest behind your head is a disaster. Your head is pressed forward all the time - many people were complaining about this. You cannot sit relaxed with your head to the back like in the normal Boeing.

The seats are not wide enough at all, the return flight my backside started to ache as 7 hrs is a long flight on uncomfortable seats. TV is OK but the system is dated on the 777 and was a bit grubby. I flew on 3 of these and only one had a nice TV, on the other hand the A380 was much more comfortable and a much better flight, I guess because of the added room.

The 3x4x3 seat configuration in a 777 is deeply uncomfortable, and unsafe. I am not an unusual build for a western male at 6'2" and 110 kilograms but I cannot get into anything but an aisle seat where the aisle is so narrow that cabin staff have to ask me to move my upper body across the neighbouring passenger so they can get their trolleys past me. The risk of having scalding water spilt all over me while they are serving coffee is always there and it does happen, although not to me, yet. I understand Qatar have a 3x3x3 configuration, I think that is my next airline.

Seat was narrow, as many other people have mentioned. Legroom was okay but I was never comfortable - fortunately my flight was only 7 hours (MEL-SIN). The squab seems to move when the seat is reclined, meaning most people didn't try to recline their seats - which helped with room for the knees.

It was my first flight with Emirates and with an A380 and I (1,92m) had enough space for my long legs, which is not usual in economy-class when you are tall. While I slept, my legs touched the seat in front of me, but I'm used to that. People of "normal" size shouldn't have problems with the space. The TV- Screen and the entertainment system was very good and had a large choice of movies and music.

The Boeing 777 was not designed for 3x4x3 seating. It's horrible, and if you have the misfortune to be seated next to a larger person, your 11 hour flight is truly miserable. Never again - Qatar for me from now on.

First time on a B777-300ER. Seat 45C was the last seat before the rows with two seats started. Good recline (no one behind) but narrow seat and aisles are way too narrow so bumped constantly. Noisier than A380 so a long way (DBX-SYD) to put up with discomfort.

Manchester to Dubai. There were 3 of us travelling (2 adults and a 5 year old) and we had 3 of the centre 4 seats. Row 36 had a wall behind it but the seat seemed to fully recline and we could store pillows etc behind the seat and no one could kick us. We were close to the galley and toilet but that did not bother us. The seat had the new ICE which was fantastic, with a huge range of movies, tv shows, and music and widescreen monitor. We were not bothered by the 4 seats in the middle, it did not seem overly cramped, and the lack of a footrest was fine. The recline was very good, seat comfortable and I was able to stretch my legs under the seat in front. I am 5'11 and 15 stones. The food was very good, and good choice of drinks.

I travelled quite a few times in B777-300ER from DXB-GRU, Flight time is around 14 hours. It is always very uncomfortable to seated in 3x4x3 configuration as compared to Qatar airways 3x3x3 configuration. Sadly Emirates sacrifices the economy passengers comfort for higher revenue per seat.

I flew Auckland to London with a 9 month old and I thought cabin crew and bulk head seats were excellent. I was nervous about flying on my own with a baby but had no problems. The passengers I sat next to we're very friendly and helpful which was a godsend. A380's have great space if you need to stretch your legs (this is compared to other planes, you are still in a plane, you're not going to be able to jog around). Food nice, entertainment looked excellent, seats were hard so had to try and work it a comfy position. Probably impossible. They weren't worse than a lot of other airlines. Didn't like Dubai airport - so busy and airside hotel not open in the A380 terminal and after asking unhelpful customer services how I could get to the other terminals I only had an hour and they only had smoking rooms.

Flew IAD-DXB in 28A, and then DXB-IAD in 46K. The reviews you will read about the 2x4x2 section at the very rear of the aircraft are true. 46K had more legroom, space between the seat and the window, and an overall feeling of a bit more privacy. The cons to 46K are that the armrest between 46J and K is a permanent one that cannot be raised or lowered. This might have eaten into the already slim seat width a bit, but it did not bother me being 5'8" and average size. Another con to being at the very back of the plane is that it takes a long time to deplane, and they were out of the meal I wanted by the time they got to me. 28A was just fine, but only because there was no one in the middle seat next to me. Originally there was, and after the doors we closed, the FA came and found him an aisle seat to move to. Before he moved, however, I was already sore from leaning against the window just so our shoulders wouldn't touch. Had he stayed there the entire 13.5 hr flight, that would have been terrible. The 3x4x3 layout overall is a bad idea for passenger comfort. Not only are the seats shoulder- touchingly narrow, but the other comments you've read about the aisle width are very true. I had to sidestep down the aisles to try and avoid bumping other passengers. And at meal/drink service time? Forget it. I did not have a problem with the lack of a footrest as some have commented. Sure, it would have been nice to have, but my feet touched the floor just fine and I'm 5'8". If this is a problem for you, I'd suggest using your carry on or, as I read in a different forum, bring a beach ball with you. When not inflated, it takes up almost no room, it costs $1, and if you partially inflate it, it won't roll and makes a good makeshift footrest.

Seats 46A-B 46J-K and the same in row 47 are good seats on the B777. This is where the plane narrows so seating is now 2-4-2. There are 4 rows with 2 seats left and right, but the best seats are row 46/47 you are far enough away from the toilets not to be bothered by pax queuing

The seat goes up at the front and I had to take off my shoes and put my feet on them to avoid cutting the blood circulation. My wife put her feet on top of her handbag. There are no foot rests. I have another flight prebooked with Emirates but after that I will not use Emirates again. I have no idea what size person you would have to be to be comfortable on one of their planes.

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.

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.

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.
