"wide and comfortable"

(United Kingdom)

Trip Verified | New A350, enough legroom (32ins seat pitch), wide and comfortable for a long haul flight (18ins), advanced IFE with new HD screen (Panasonic ex3, 11ins), very comfortable 6 way head rest and generous recline with useful little storage nooks. Overall, an outstanding economy class product.

"spacious seat and legroom"

(Philippines)

Trip Verified | Boeing 777-300 with spacious seat and legroom. This is the first airline I have flown where the seatbelt has a foam padding on one side of the belt and it’s very comfortable for you to rest your hand on.

"no airline with worse seats"

(Australia)

Not Verified | There is no airline with worse seats than Cathay Pacific's new ten across 777 seats. Even by usual ten across 777 seating they are cramped. Furthermore the leg room is poor. I have not flown on any airline (including all low costs carriers) with such poor seats.

"v"

(Japan)

Trip Verified | Quite a narrow seat for Premium Economy. I was lucky enough not to have anyone in the seat next to mine. Seat pitch was fine, although not so good when the passenger in front reclined for the entire flight. The leg room was fine as were the pillow and blanket.

"lot of pressure on your lower legs"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Bangkok to Hong Kong on Cathay A350. The boarding process went smoothly and felt very welcomed by the FAs upon boarding. The entertainment system and mood lighting made for a relaxing experience and the food was quite pleasant, definitely well above average. The seat did feel a bit cramped but in today's industry this is the standard for economy, also on the A350 the seat is comfortable at first sit in but after an hour or so especially with the seat reclining and bottom portion sliding forward, it really puts a lot of pressure on your lower legs and made my legs cramped and entire lower area numb. On my next segment to JFK on 777-300ER this was not an issue for the 14 hour flight, the 777s seats proved superior.

"Seats were very comfortable"

(United States)

Trip Verified | Seats were very comfortable for a 14 hour flight, the 3x3x3 layout that Cathay uses is far more spacious than the 3x4x3 of many airlines. I felt comfortable moving around in my seat and getting some sleep. My bottom area or legs were not sore at any point which normally always happens. The entertainment system was also good, plenty of movies and shows to watch. The IFE wasn't on par with Qatar or Emirates but still was well above average and I always had something to do. The food service was also spectacular, quick, efficient and tasted pretty good.

"seat itself was very comfortable"

(United Kingdom)

Not Verified | Flew Melbourne to Hong Kong in Premium Economy in one of Cathay’s new A350s. Seat was spacious in terms of legroom and had an upgraded entertainment system compared to Cathay’s older fleet of 777s. This was reasonably easy to use and had a lot more flight information and two camera views from outside the aircraft. The screen was a decent size and there was a tablet holder, as well as power and USB sockets. The seat itself was very comfortable and reclined quite a long way back with a foot rest. However when the seat in front was fully reclined and the foot rest extended, it was extremely difficult to get out! For this reason I would strongly recommend that customers with mobility difficulties choose aisle seats in PE.

"legroom and width is sufficient"

(Hong Kong)

Trip Verified | It is a hardshell seat that slides down but do not recline backwards. While this may not be as comfortable as other Cathay Pacific planes, it does reduce annoyance from the front, especially during meal time and going to the toilet. The legroom and width is sufficient, not crowded at all. The IFE is excellent. It is responsive and very rich in content. The resolution is better than most other airlines as well. Every seat has a socket for charging mobile phones or laptops.

"great for a long haul flight"

(Singapore)

Trip Verified | The Boeing 777-300ER premium economy seat was great for a long haul flight. It was wide enough, had just enough legroom, some storage on the seat in front of you and the armrests were wide. Recline was good, and the IFE screen was wide enough and easy to use, and had plenty of materials. The calf-rests were very very hard to operate as they refused to extend or retract, which was frustrating.
