There is a metal box under the seat in front of you that restricts your storage and foot space.
All the H seats have under them a metal box, provably related to the enterteiment system, this bos reduces the space for your feet. Moreover some edges appear to be sharp.
I was on the Aer Lingus flight from Chicago to Dublin on December 28th 2018. I was glad to have paid the extra money for this seat, primarily because it was faster to exit as we had a tight connection, but overall the seat was very comfortable with decent leg room and good padding. I am only 5'4, but my significant other is 6'3 and he was comfortable for this flight. The cost was only $45/pp to sit closer and I would gladly pay it again in the future. **Other suggestion is if you are on Aer Lingus, buy the BIA meal which was excellent. We were served first, the presentation was beautiful and the food was piping hot. Again, the little extras that make a long haul trip more enjoyable.
This is one of the worst seats I have ever been allocated. This seat and 40K are at an angle with 2-3 inches less legroom because it is angled towards the seat in front. Also impossible to fully open a standard laptop.
Extra room left leg only ! The casing for the emergency slide on the door blocks the extra room for your right leg meaning you have to sit on an angle to stretch your legs out. The noise and light from the galley kept me awake on the night flight from BOS to DUB, people congregating in the space in front of you is also annoying. There is no overhead storage so get on the plane quickly to get some space on the row behind or in the center bins.These things make this an uncomfortable seat. On the plus side you get a window, are first for the meal service and are off the plane quickly, however although the flight and Aer Lingus were fine I don't think I would choose this seat again
This was one of the most uncomfortable seats I have ever sat on. I paid an additional 80 for the privilege of being wedged in to this narrow seat. Yes there is (notionally) extra legroom but it was soon filled up with people waiting for the WCs and doing their exercises whilst chatting to each other, that combined with the noise from the galley made it a most uncomfortable experience. Nor worth the extra money.
This seat gets you prioroty boarding, but there is no overhead storage and you have to sit there whilst the rest of the plane is boarded which can be a chilly experience on a cold day .The area in front of this seat is often filled with people waiting to use the lavatory meaning the extra space you pay for is basically a waiting area also used by people doing stretching excercises or just having a conversation disturbing when you are trying to sleep, on the plus side you do have a window and are the first coach passengers to disembark but am not sure if the extra charged form these seats is worth it.
I've flown Aer Lingus eight times and like their planes, fares and Dublin Airport. But the new Airbus 330-330s have thin padding and minimal support in their economy class seat bottoms. My hips and legs ached for most of the 7-9 hour transatlantic flights. My only help, after many hours, was placing two thick inflight magazines together under me on the seat cushion. Tell Aer Lingus to replace these seat bottoms.
The seat does not have a console protecting it from the aisle. The seat in front and behind do.
This is in. 2 seat only row so ideal for couples. Toilets are not at back of plane do not lots of people walking past. Aisle seat has slightly less room to store bag under seat in front than window seat. Movie choice was poor.
Flew this plane from ORD-DUB and back. The padding on the seats was so thin. I am a female on the smaller side and I barely had any shoulder room. Neither myself nor my friend next to me could get much sleep because we couldn't get comfortable. I ended up using the pillow they give you for lumbar support! The food was decent and there was a good selection of movies and TV shows and the power outlets to charge my phone were nice.
This seats were very uncomfy and realy tiny... and I am a small person. But the crew was nice, the film selection wasnt bad and the food was good! There was also a usb outlet to charge your device. I would definetly fly again with aerlingus even though its not the service you get when flying with a premium airline... but if you like me, and you can sleep 5 out of a 7 hours flight... then you will be fine. (When you find a good position, cause seats were narrow, tiny and had not much leg room)
This was the most horrible long haul flight I have ever been on (10 hours). The seat and pitch was tiny. I'm 5'11 and I didn't have enough room even though the person in front of me didn't recline his seat fully. There was also a box which took up a third of a foot space. And with broad shoulders I was being continually knocked by people passing by. I now believe what I've heard that Aer Lingus is a terrible airline to fly. Booking 2 trips to the West Coast in the next 6 months - I'll be trying other carriers.
Awesome business class for the price. Brilliant seat and service throughout
A truly horrific experience. At 6" I was constantly hit by the person in front trying to recline their seat leaving my knees heavily bruised 2 days later. The air crew - only to quick to tell me of that customers rights - seeming oblivious to the fact I wasn't doing this on purpose I just didn't have anywhere to put my legs. Arm rest between G and F seats only raises to 45 degrees so no chance of getting a few more inches of space there if your travelling as a couple. Lastly a metal box right under the seat in front to make changing position even more difficult. this plane isn't fit for travelling 7+ hrs trans-Atlantic ... NEVER AGAIN.
A great seat if you are travelling with someone who is in 2H. I was luck 2H was not occupied on my flight, but if you needed the toilet i duringthe flight you would have to ask the occupant of 2H to move or climb over them. If you are travelling alone and dont want to get intimate with your fellow passengers choose a seat on A rows. or a seat like 3K
Terrible seat; traffic to and from toilet makes this a nightmare, Avoid at all costs
Nice aircraft. Very noisy at this seat location.
Staff was very helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend Aer Lingus Airline and will fly with you again. Wonderful service!!
I'm only 5'5" but I felt squeezed in. I've flown with many airlines and this is possibly the worst imo. When the person in front of you has their seat reclined (and you don't), the entertainment screen is about 4-5 inches from your face! The seat is also uncomfortable.
