VIRGIN AUSTRALIA PREMIUM ECONOMY CLASS SEAT REVIEW - BOEING 777-300ER

13D (DAR-MEL), exit seat. LOADS of leg room but there are seats in front. Comfort is good, but can feel not so on 4hr+ flights. Armrests seem quite weak don't stay upright if you want to lay down, but you still can. Exit seats don't recline which is a pain. But if the plane isn't full then its all good, you can stretch out.

LAX-BNE. Premium Economy seats were very comfortable, had ample leg room, and the 3-position leg rest was really nice. The front row just gets a cushion for their feet, after take-off. I prefer the leg rests the other rows have, as they are adjustable. The recline was pretty generous, and I didn't feel too crowded when the seat in front of me was down. The seat width could've been a bit wider. I had some room, but if you are a larger individual, you will fill up the seat. With my seat reclined and my feet on the leg rest in the top position, I was almost all the way stretched out. (I am 5'6") I found it very comfortable. For 2 people, the side rows are great. They are just two seats, and we felt like it was our own little area. Getting out of the window seat was pretty good. The VOD system was pretty good. They had a seat-to-seat text chat feature, and games you can play against other passengers. The movie selection was good. They provide noise-canceling headphones, and they worked very well. Welcome drink, menu for meals, attentive crew, and self-service bar is awesome! There was always water, juice, beer, wine, rum, and soda available, also bags of potato chips. The premium section also has it's own restrooms - large and clean. Welcome kit included eye cover, blanket, toothbrush, socks, etc. I was very impressed with Premium Economy, and thought it was well worth it for a 16 hour flight.

SYD to LAX return (return flight was seat 38F). Found legroom and recline on V Australia's 777 superior to others. Seat was a little thin/firm under backside, and being 100kg I noticed. Seats are a good width, but bloke next to me kept spreading himself out too much which made it difficult to sleep properly.

Very happy with the Premium Economy product for the price you pay. Only small downside is some difficulty with exiting seat when row in front is in maximal recline.

On long haul flight from MEL-LAX, the seat cushioning became intolerable. We did everything from placing pillows / blankets under our bottoms & thighs, to regular position changes & walks around the cabin. What's the use of having the widest seats in economy across the pacific if they afford very little comfort in seat cushioning?

Seats forward in the economy cabin are preferred as this provides first choice with menu selection and exit speed from aircraft. Seats are new - thin but this provides improved leg access under the seat in front.



Review:   27 December 2007

Aircraft:  B737-700/800

Recommended :  No

Comfort Score :  2/10

Now that Virgin Blue have PTV's installed in nearly all their 737 a/c, Row 1 has gone - in respect of seat width - from being very comfortable to being highly restricted, due to the fixed and very thick dividers between each of the 3 seats. Unless you are seriously under-weigfht and very slim of build, avoid these 3 seats, and under no circumstances, pay the extra for Blue Zone seating for Row 1.
