2 or 3hours before landing, galleys are bothersome for prepare breakfast.
The oddity that annoys me about this seat is there is little recline with the seat. To lie fully flat, one has to get up as the seat back flips forward. So you don't have much angle of recline in the seat; it's either upright, a wee bit of recline or get up and put it fully flat.
best Business class seat across the entire fleet. But still not good enough for 5k a piece. Can't wait for the new Business class seat coming at the end of this year.
Agree with other reviews--odd to sit at an angle. I found "bed" narrow and hard, even with thin "mattress". Service often too effusive, and meals not deluxe (a burger?). But really glad for non-stop to Chicago!
It is one of the only seat where you can almost enjoy the window
First time in a 789, and frankly I was disappointed. The seat pitch left me (178cm) feeling cramped and after ~2 hours of this 11 hr flight it was painfully obvious that the seat pans had little or nu stuffing. After 8 hours it was excruciating. Whoever selected these seats should have spent more than 30 seconds in them with a...
great seat spacious wide and comfy. quiet cabin too, excellent service and good food presented on real crockery and cutlery, with a wide choice on the menu, copious amounts of drinks wine spirts beer etc, in real glasses, very friendly airteam, good bye econoomy.
That Crew often open upper storage to take out additional headphones is bothersome.
Flight taken June 1st 2018. I noticed that all of the other economy seats had a foot rest than came out so when you reclined your legs were lifted off the ground for more comfort. This wasn't available on row 38 in the middle. I would therefore say this seat is inferior to others.
SIN to AKL Emergency exit on 787. Legroom lovely. But seat armrest against plane wall so almost impossible to sit properly if you have a passenger next to you. Worst seat ever.
I fly solo between AKL and HNL 6 times a year for business on the Dreamliner 787. I highly encourage solo flyers to pay the extra for the Sky Couch option. I find it superior to Business for a fraction of the cost. Who cares about the food, I wanna sleep and at 6'2" I can comfortably curl and zzzzz.
Fantastic airline with great service. Premium seats gave a true premium experience, with fantastic legroom for a 6'3" frame, even when compared to any other premium seats that I have experienced. 10/10 AirNZ.
Proximity to the restroom wasn't as troublesome as I thought since they draw the curtains which separate business class and galley. Small numbers in business class share two restrooms with business class crew means less traffic between seat and galley. Seats are faced at an angle. As someone that likes to look outside during tak...
the seat was great it has more leg space and the flight attendants were amazing and lovely
Seat 61K doesn't have windows.
The bean counters have struck again. Squeeze in extra seats and never mind passenger comfort. The strange seat layout was most disappointing after reading the sales pitch. I am going to Tokyo next time and Air NZ is the only one offering a non-stop flight. Oh woe, what am I to do?
The Air New Zealand PE product is very good indeed; the inflight food and service was superb. However my seat table developed a fault when first used which meant I had to eat meals with a blanket under it for support. The flight crew said that another table in PE also had the same fault, so it looks like the design may need impr...
After changing from Virgin Atlantic LHR to Shanghai in comfort in Y class, to Air NZ on thier new 787-9 Dreamliner again in Y class my comments would be - be up front and advertise these seats for slim people only. They are absolutely deplorable for long haul flights - eg 10.5 hrs. To small, to uncomfortable and and impossible t...
This seat was so much better than 37F given the uninterrupted legroom available. Pity the economy seats on this 787 do not have legrests (unless in SkyCouch rows) as it would have been even better. Note that there is a hard division between 35H and seats J and K so you cannot lift the armrests to sleep across the row.
Premium Economy Perth-Auckland. Definitely worth the extra $$ for a mid-haul flight (5hrs). Comfortable seat, great accessories, excellent service and food. I struggle to sleep in economy but find it much easier in PE with the extra room and seat recline. Always tricky getting in and out of a window seat for toilet if your seat ...
