South African Airways Passenger Seat Tip

Business Class - A330-200

This new A330-200 aircraft has two business class cabins, the front cabin has rows 1 - 3, there is then a galley/washroom area and then rows 4 - 6 are in the second business class cabin. Rows 2 and 5 would be best, the forward cabin with rows 1-3 probably has a more elite ambiance to it. Seats are in 2x2x2 config.

Business Class - A330-200

Row 2 is the best row of seats in the Business Class cabin, they are away from the forward Galley and the Rear WC thus meaning less chance of being disturbed by noise etc, seat config is 2x2x2.

Economy Class - ex London :  Boeing 747-400

Try and get the seats in the upper deck cabin. They seem to have slightly more leg room, and if you get a window seat - storage cupboards next to the seats.
