A middle World Traveler Plus seat that has seen better days. The entertainment screen was tiny and poor quality when watching the moving map. The cabin was also very hot on our overnight flight from Gatwick to Mauritius. Service was good but the seat/cabin need a refresh.
I booked a flight from Bangkok to London with British Airways and could only select a very few seats including seat 39A, which was ok in terms of comfort and recline like a normal seat with no one in the back kicking your seat and only one person besides you, however the toilet odour could become obnoxious if it is not cleaned frequently which I had. The galley is not bothersome for a day flight and turbulence you may experience on this seat as one of the worst in case you encounter some due to its position.
Good seat, however you have to awkwardly step over the person next to you to get out of it. Also you have to awkwardly face them before you put the screen up. Nice White Company bedding and pillow, however the screens are TERRIBLE! They are tiny, fuzzy and bad sound quality. I would recommend bringing your own ipad to watch movies on this plane .
We flew GAT - FLL. This plane is VERY old. Seat cushion was flat and very worn to the point it had pulled away from the back portion of the seat leaving a very uncomfortable hump for a ten hour flight. Beware this plane does not have any power ports or USB charging options in this seat. The service was VERY GOOD. The meal was okay. BA needs to retire or refurbish these OLD 777-200 fleet.
Glad I booked these seats for 12 hour flight to Bangkok and return. Due to injury I had to keep my right leg fairly straight and stand up regularly. So 39b gave me a diagonal position to the right, which was perfect. Seat reclined sufficiently to sleep comfortably. No inconvenience from passengers using toilet/galley. Would definitely use again on this aircraft.
Plane is getting very tired (Dec. 2018) and some panelling was coming loose. Little or no room to store anything - you are given blankets and pillows but have to give them upbefore take-off for storage somewhere as there is no place to store them around you. You do not have any overhead storage in the middle 4 seats for the first 2 rows so cannot even out them with your luggage. To retrieve anything you have to climb over legs and, since the flight is short overnight, other passengers e.g. 2D and 2G may go straight to flat out immediately if they get on in Nassau (about 2 hrs after Cayman) having already had a meal on land while you have to wait for yours until you're back in the air. Poor quality entertainment sets. Food was OK (but our daytime World Traveller Plus out on BA0253 had been meat or meat choice - plan ahead!!).
Nice window set up, the engine was not too noisy or blocking too much of the view. However, getting out of 10A required crawling over 11B's footrest. 11A would have been a better seat for convenience to get in/out. 5A also had no impeding footrest but it was missing one of the three windows. The layout is rather claustrophobic-there's no place to put a drink other than on the table, so it's a subpar arrangement compared to AA's business class layout. The 2-4-2 configuration makes things tight. Food and beverages were topnotch, service exceptional. The IFE was old fashioned and low quality. I used my iPad and watched my own movies.
Not the most spacious business class out there - 8 abreast with the herringbone arrangement. My flight business was only half full and there was plenty of room to stretch out. Food was to notch compared to US domestic swill. Service was brilliant - I wonder if on the 3-class plane, the attendants give Club World all their attention since there is no First.
Very old plane, with a large entertainment box under the seat in front, powering a tiny, washed-out 4:3 display. Seat was OK, but not as nice as more modern ones. Overall, the aircraft was in desperate need of renewal, as with so many 777-200s nowadays (Cathay's are no better).
I flew alone, so I looked for a single seat in the business class. The seat was allocated to me by the airline and I was not able to replace it, although I paid for it. the seat was bad and uncomfortable, the constant passage of passengers and crew, the bathrooms, the smell of the toilets. The seat does not allow a comfortable night's sleep. not recommended.
Everyone walks into the back pf the seat including the hostess tram and the trolley due to it being off set into the aisle to the walkway behind it. Sleeping is an issue as you get woken up each time seat is knocked
Good seat - the bulkhead doesn't come all the way in front of the seat so you can stretch your legs out behind the business class seat in front without blocking the aisle. The plane is old and tatty but this flight is generally quiet.
When I had other seats to choose while checking in, I wanted to sit in 40D since it is the only aisle available and close to restrooms. Huge mistake. First problem: seat cushion is not exactly flat. In other words, when butt is seated cushion inclines towards a direction making my body slightly incline. Result: I got minor back pain after 10 hours of journey in that seat. Second problem: seat recliner button was not working. I tried to manually force the seat to go backwards but did not help. I slept in the upright position in that 10 hour journey. Third problem: entertainment system. Screen of my entertainment system was fuzzy and non-responsive to touch gestures. Any video I watch gets stuck and I had to get out of that video and get back in to watch it again. I've verified this with other passengers in my row and found that only my entertainment system was acting strange.
Avoid row 26, air con for the whole world traveler is blasting incredibly cold air right above making it hard not to get sick as staff wouldnt/ cannot turn it down! Gets unbelievably cold there! Also, head rest is broken and keeps falling down! Good for loads of leg room though
If you don't mind the bumping of carts and people as well as the noise of the toilet flushing right behind you and the din of both crew and passengers in animated conversation in the galley then this is the seat for you! You can recline your seat as far as it would go without getting the ire of a fellow passenger behind you. There's very easy access to both the toilet and the galley; just a couple of steps and you're there...
No additional legroom at the front, and in fact felt more cramped than those in other rows. I am not especially tall (59), but there was simply no comfortable position for my legs/feet to rest
This plane was old and dirty. The video screens are oddly located so you have to sit up to open them. Mine was barely visible being smudged and dirty. Service is done through the extendable screen between the pair of seats so when is down your facing the person in 2B which is fine if you're traveling with a companion but unnerving if it's a stranger. The seat is very private however you have to climb over the passenger in 3B if he's for reclined. There is a small storage box at the bottom and a charging station that didn't work. Overall disappointing for business class.
Very good seat! You get an amazing view of the wing and is very good for take off and landing as you get to see the flaps and the spoilers in action! The only bad thing is I noticed that the seat I sat in, the In-flight Entertainment was set to the home page, not allowing me to watch any movies at all which was very upsetting. (It was the Gatwick 777-200, Old ones). Also my brother's seat, 22B, was in very bad condition. The tray table was broken and the head rest was falling apart. Watch out on some of these airplanes! Not all are like this but some are.
The reviews of 2K from MCO to GAT business class are spot on. It is quite and like you are on the plane alone! Service os great!
Entertainment box under seat in front is massive meaning you cant stretch your legs. Premium economy that is not!
