"poor legroom poor width poor armrests"

(United Kingdom)

Seats 35 E/F on A330 - awful seats. I would recommend that others avoid these seats - poor legroom poor width poor armrests.

"seats are too narrow"

(United Kingdom)

Seats are too narrow and has been said many times the configuration means narrow aisles.

"seat width was terrible"

(United Kingdom)

I had an aisle seat but was totally cramped seat width was terrible I was struck on the shoulder quite violently by passing trolleys more than four times. My knees touched the seat in front and of course the person in front reclined his seat making the screen virtually unviewable and the meals tray inaccessible.

"lack of a footrest made it uncomfortable"

(Philippines)

The lack of a footrest made it uncomfortable even for a tall guy like me. I am lean but I think these seats will be uncomfortable for a stocky person. The 3x4x3 is a bad idea for long haul economy flights (mine was a 9 hour flight) - you end up feeling like really being packed in a can of sardines. The service wasn't the best either.

"no footrests makes it even worse"

(Canada)

Terrible experience flying from DXB into JFK. They need to re-work their seating configuration or their seating dimensions. No footrests makes it even worse.

"seats are far too cramped"

(Saudi Arabia)

The seats are far too cramped for my liking and seat configuration on long-haul flights is terrible.. Like most other reviewers I would say they should put the foot rest back! Also the seats could be a little softer!

"the seat cushions are quite firm"

(United Kingdom)

Economy seat at back of cabin where layout is 2x4x2. I am over 1.9m tall and had no problem on the flight from LHR to DXB. If there was a criticism it was that the seat cushions are quite firm.

"wide and comfortable seat"

(Sweden)

Wide and comfortable seat. For a 1.86 tall person like me it's usually a must to get exit or bulkhead seat but on the A380 it felt good even on a normal seat.

"the most uncomfortable seat"

(New Zealand)

Has to be the most uncomfortable seat I have ever sat in on a plane. Looking at other reviews it appears that the removal of foot rests is the cause of the problem. Inflight entertainment system was excellent.

"terribly uncomfortable seat"

(United Kingdom)

Terribly uncomfortable seat. The airline has taken out the footrests for which the seat was designed. The result is that your feet hang in mid air in any position except bolt upright. Trying to doze is rewarded by pain in the backs of your thighs from the pressure from the seat. Avoid at all costs
