We were completely outraged that we paid non-refundable fees of $320 over and above the airfare on our Philadelphia - Lisbon roundtrip flight ($79 per person each way) for "choice" seats - and found out that these seats do not provide any extra legroom. We made the reasonable assumption that IF a passenger pays that much extra, they would receive what other airlines provide - several inches of additional legroom. We did not click through to the description US Airways gives that does say no extra legroom is provided. But again, paying that much more, we made the reasonable assumption that we would receive something more than sitting in the first 3 rows of economy, with no additional legroom. We fault US Airways for a very misleading offering. We will try very hard to avoid flying with them again for this reason! P.S. other passengers in the "choice" seats were also outraged upon discovering their seats were no less cramped than other economy seats!

I agree with a previous reviewer who said these seats were "torture devices." About 2 hours into a flight from Charlotte, NC to Phoenix, AZ my body was screaming to get out of the seat. My poor husband, who is quite tall, was miserable as well. This was one flight I couldn't wait to get off of, it was that bad. The seat was hard and confining; the leg room stingy. The guy behind me continuously hit my seat back, doing what, I don't know. The woman in front of me used her seat back to bounce back and forth throughout the entire flight. Why? Because they just didn't have enough room. The space they allot you in your seat is pitiful and painful. Twice I had the cart hit my knee as it was pushed by, and several times I had people brush up against me as they walked past because there is so little room in the aisle. Why is this acceptable for air travel? By the time we got off the plane my husband's feet and ankles were severely swollen, and he does not normally have a problem with ankle/feet swelling. Really kind of scary the physical abuse you have to tolerate in order to fly from one part of the country to the other. I can't imagine flying on a plane like this on an international flight. It would be intolerable unless you are built like an 8 year-old.

This was by far the most uncomfortable flight that I have been on and I was in one of the worst possible seats 35C. Row 35 has three off-center seats relative to the four seats of row 34. Between the brackets of the seat in front of you and boxes that hold life jackets there is no place to put your feet. There was a universal camaraderie in the cabin in suffering passengers of all shapes and sizes. People ignored the seat belt signs and milled about the cabin for periods of relief. I will never fly US Airways again for international travel.

Airways A320 from Philadelphia to Phoenix and there was more room. I'm not that tall at 5' 8" but I'd recommend avoiding the US Airways A330.

It's funny to see how people complain about the seats on the A330 - you should try their B767! I found the former (seat next to a toilet with many people using my seat as a rest while queuing) reasonably comfortable compared to the outrageous product on the 767 on a transatlantic crossing. At least on the Airbus I didn't get a knee injury and I had a personal TV. On the B767 this was a whole different story. As I had a bad experience on the inbound flight, I had asked for a nicer seat upfront of the cabin right behind business class - only to realize that it was a whole different plane - and experience. No personal TV, from my seat I couldn't even see the main screen. There was a small one in front but it was so high up, I couldn't see that one either. It was so cramped I had my knee hurting about one hour into the flight while the lady behind me was so upset about my reclined seat she kept banging against it. The plane's interior was visibly dated, dirty but admittedly even the long overdue clean wouldn't improve this bad impression much, so I see US airway's point to just leave it in a state. All this may be justifiable given it's a low cost carrier, etc. - the only puzzling thing to my mind is that this airline should be part of Star Alliance when Air India was kept out - surely it can't be worse than that.

Very uncomfortable, prayed the passenger in front didn't recline his seat. For health's sake don't use this airline for transatlantic flights.

US Airways has two versions of the A330, the A330-300 used on many European routes out of PHL, and the A330-200. The A330-300 version manages to cram in 30 more seats than the A330-200. A330-300, Economy, seat 25E - hands down the most uncomfortable airplane seat I have ever sat in. GI basically had to sit with my knees and legs bent sideways the entire 8 hour flight. Overhead bins barely seem to hold an average sized rollerbag. Return on A330-200 version, which had much more room, I could actually sit properly in the seat!

The seats are torture devices. I was fortunate enough to sit in an exit row (seat 23C) on CLT- FCO, but since there was no passageway or galley behind the bulkhead, passengers kept climbing across our row (and our legs!) during the entire flight. My heart went out to everyone else not sitting in the exit row - it is astonishing how little space there is with these seats.

This pertains to seat 8B on the A330-200 as I think the center section of 4 seats and perhaps the rear section may not offer as much width. Seat width was an excellent 18.5" which greatly aided in comfort even though pitch was only 31". I thought the equipment box under 8a was not overly intrusive and much better than on Continental's B737's. I found the seat width great, the TV screen quality very good and the food good-enough. Overall, a pleasant economy seat.

There was so little leg room that I couldn't fit without bumping the seat in front of me. And I am only 5'8" tall, 150 lbs. There was not even room for a small purse by my feet because of the box they had fitted underneath for the live vests. The passenger in front of me could not recline because my knees dug into his back. It is criminal that they think this is acceptable on a transatlantic 10 hour flight. Do not buy a ticket on their airline until they take out two rows from their configuration.

For an 8 hour flight from FRA to CLT, the seat was unacceptable (admittedly, I am 6'7" tall). Ground staff was extremely unhelpful regarding a seat change, and I was forced to spend an additional $500 to buy an upgrade to Business Class. The seat is an insult to passengers.

Flight from Philadelphia to Manchester UK. Have flown to and from USA over 25 times. This by far was the worst flight for comfort and leg room. The internal flight from Boston to Philadelphia has acres more legroom and space. Do not fly transatlantic with US Airways if you want to fly in comfort.

Add one more to the list of those who find USAirways A330 coach class seats incredibly uncomfortable. As others have also stated, this was puzzling because our Denver to Philadelphia leg on an A320 was fine. I was shocked that our international leg to London offered worse comfort than the domestic leg. Makes no sense. I should point out that I am the type who almost never complains about anything, and can usually cope with discomfort or inconvenience. I am also relatively tall at 6'/0", but not unusually so, yet all the way to London I had to sit at an angle. It was impossible for me to fit with my knees pointed straight ahead. It wasn't close, either. I had to sit at about a 30 degree angle to one side, then switch to the other side, ad nauseum. By the time we arrived, I was in serious pain and discomfort. I have never experienced seats this close together on any flight anywhere!

By far the most uncomfortable seats I have ever experienced. We went 1 leg on an Airbus 320 - that was great. Last leg on the 757 - that was horrendous. I'm only 6' tall, but my knees hit the seat in front of me the entire trip. There was so little room between that seat and mine, that I wasn't able to use the lap tray for my computer. The distance between adjacent seats was minimal, so buckling seat belts was an arduous task. This plane is probably fine for 1 hour flights, but on 7-8 hour flights it's horrible. This plane is billed as 188 passenger; it needs to be about 150 to give people an opportunity to relax on their flight.
