"seat offers a generous 32x185 dimension"

(France)

Qatar Airways A380 Doha to Paris 26 Nov 2014. Economy seat 31G (upper deck). In their brand new A380 Qatar Airways made the excellent choice to keep some economy seats in the upper deck frequent flyers will appreciate. The seat offers a generous 32x185 dimension in a quiet 2x4x2 configuration. TV screen wifi (fee) USB plug AC power for smartphone (AC power was not working). Service excellent with Qatar Airways crew outstanding.

"tv screen far too close to their face"

(United Kingdom)

The economy seat reclines a bit further than many others. Not a good thing for the passenger behind who either has their tv screen far too close to their face or anything on their table is dumped into their lap when the seat is reclined. It happened to 2 people on my flight and very nearly to me.

"legroom was more than enough"

(Argentina)

One of the best economy class seats I know. I am 5'9'' and legroom was more than enough. Recline was better than most airlines. Screen had a pretty wide adjustment angle so I had no problem to watch the program regardless of how reclined was the seat in front of me. At the meal time there was enough room to use the tray table without the passenger in front putting their seat in the upright position. Good choice of entertainment. the only downside was that the seat was a little hard. Summing it up a very good overall experience.

"seats are narrow and too close together"

(United Kingdom)

Manchester - Doha - Singapore. The A330 was quite comfortable enough legroom. The B787 seats are narrow and too close together you struggle to get in and out of them. The entertainment box situated under the seat restricts your legroom by about 1/3rd.

"experience was unbearable for me"

(United Kingdom)

I'm a short guy and the experience was unbearable for me. The seats are slim without much foam for back support. The legroom is impeached by the entertainment box attached to the seat with make seating straight impossible even for my short legs. The aisle seat's inconvenience are the entertainment box and the reduced aisle which will provide you a bumpy ride from other passing passengers or carts. If you think the middle seat is your saver. When you recline the seat is move forward which turn your knee as an entertainment tv stand. I would advise that you fly Qatar Airways Airbus or Boeing 777 where comfort is very satisfactory.

"one of the best you could ever get"

(China)

That was one of the best you could ever get on a long-haul flight. I was worrying about the seat before the flight because I am 5'9" and a quite heavy weight. But once I got seated there was still space between me and the bar and the legrooms were still lots left.

"cramped economy seat"

(Singapore)

Cramped economy seat made particularly uncomfortable as entertainment system takes up considerable space in the foot well. Have to sit with legs at an angle to avoid the box. Exceptionally uncomfortable flight.

"one of the better economy seats"

(Australia)

Qatar B777 long haul MEL-DOH experience was good. One of the better economy seats plus good service. However the new B787 (DOH-BRU return) horrible. Main problem is the entertainment system box which intrudes into legroom for A C D F G and K seat. It occupies about one third of the space directly in front of the seat. On one sector the middle seat was empty so sitting on an angle made it almost tolerable but on the return the middle seat was occupied and I had to squeeze my foot between the seat support and the curved sidewall. Other Qatar flights maybe but if it involves a connection in DOH to a 787 forget it.

"the narrowest seats I have seen"

(India)

This Boeing 787 has the narrowest seats I have seen in some time. Be prepared to knock your elbows with your co-passenger or if they are of large built they will spill over in your seat. Compared to the A330 seats of Qatar these are a nightmare. The leg room is also not good and once the person in front of you reclines you are done for.

"extremely comfortable for economy"

(Vietnam)

Extremely comfortable for economy. We really appreciated the kit (socks eye-mask earplugs toothbrush/paste). Food was above average for economy. Best of all was the in-flight entertainment system. Very large screens and a huge choice of films games tv shows.
