"not worth the price paid."

(United States)

Exit row 27 seats A/F : No legroom due to protruding exit slide cover. Window area cold, pillow asked for, none provided. There should be no seat next to window, as only someone without legs, or really short, or a child or infants would fit (and there can't be child or infants on the exit row). My wife is petite and skinny. She was not allowed to rest her legs on top of the slide cover, so she had to turn and rest her legs on top of mine (she was in seat F, I was in seat E), therefore I could not move my legs! The seat width was narrower due to the tray stowage, and the armrests also would not raise up. Flight was 6 hours long. Not worth the price paid.

"legroom was mediocre"

(Canada)

Being a Former Star Alliance airline, I expected the seating to be a lot more than it was. The seats had the same feeling as a ride in a taxi with that easy to clean material on the seat. The Recline was okay, there was no power outlet which really ticked me off on the A319, as my phone was dying. Legroom was mediocre and the width and aisle space was standard. My bag was forced to be Gate Checked on the 319 as there was in adequate storage onboard. I didnt have my Carry On Bag during my layover in Philly which was disappointing as I had a change of clothes incase it was humid ( which it very much was ).

"Impossible to fall asleep"

(United States)

Flew PHL to TLV. Seats would not recline more than a couple of inches. Impossible to fall asleep on the 10 hours flight. Would not fly this route again on the Airbus 330.

"no less cramped than other economy seats"

(United States)

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!

"seats were torture devices"

(United States)

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.

"the most uncomfortable flight"

(United States)

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.

"recommend avoiding the US Airways A330"

(United Kingdom)

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.

"very uncomfortable seat"

(United Kingdom)

Very uncomfortable seat for a transatlantic fight. AV could not be rated since it and the reading light were not available for the complete flight.

"very uncomfortable"

(United Kingdom)

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

"most uncomfortable airplane seat"

(United States)

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!
