Best seat in economy, BY FAR. The seat may feel slightly more narrow due to TV being in arm rest... but the fact that no one can recline into your face makes that well-worth it. The other bonus of this seat versus the exit row seats behind it is those are plagued by people standing around waiting for the bathroom!
Left side seats in Premium Economy may be bothersome when you must reach lavatory located on right side only. You may go over row 45 to pass to the other aisle twice or someway disturb people in row 30 passing in front of them when no bassinet is open.
The center "gally-ish" compartment shown between C and F cabins contains service items that the cabin crew access, via side doors facing these window seats, during flight at the start and ends of all services. So, there is a lot of commotion and clanging and banging of service items being pulled out and put away at that location.
The curve of the plane means that this seat has less legroom than other seats.
During the whole 15 hours of the flight from Boston to Hong Kong (round trip CX811 & CX812), Service was no where to be seen, other than the 2 meals served and cannot find the flight attendants at all there after, no one! I got up to throw away the candy wrappers into the trash bin at the service station, received a yelling from one of the young ladies attendant, “don’t throw stuffs into the bin, its already full”, my reply was, “excuse me! Is that a trash bin for trash, where do you expecting the trash to go? If it is full why was it so full and no one taking care of it?” If there was any air turbulences, trash will be flying around.
Seat 12K is wonderful - the lavatory entrance is on the galley side and flushing is quiet, so there was absolutely no disturbance during the 13hr flight from Vancouver to HKG. The separating curtain stayed closed and there was no light interfering either. Love the feeling of this small cabin. Service was very good, but main course presentation was lacking - served from a cart, like in economy cabin - one thing the US based airlines do better.
Seat is fine; typical reverse herringbone arrangement. Although Cathay is generally quite good, i don't understand how they get their 5 star rating, when they do not have noise cancelling headphones in business class. Inexcusable.
Agree with the other comments, 12K in the small cabin in the front is quiet and the toilet behind the seat was no bother at all. This seat has the additional advantage of some flat surface by the magazine rack where i could put things.
Atention was fine. Exellent crew and service
This seat has extra leg room but it is often used by passengers on the left side who are crossing through to go to the lavatory and this is bothersome.
I generally book a window seat so I can close the window shade - theres usually always one narcissistic passenger who wants to open their window to read rather than use a light...the main problem with this service is no Wifi, which is a problem for business travelers.
Great seat in smaller front cabin . Excellent food , staff and the toilet behind was no problem . Better than 15A/15K on CX113/CX198 flights .
Premium Economy passengers seated on the port side of the plane (seats 31 thru 34; A,C,D,E) have to squeeze between this seat and the bulkhead to get to the single bathroom in this cabin.
Flew CX 254 LHR-HKG and CX 255 HKG-LHR. Very private seat, almost like your own little world. very minimal interaction with other passengers. Very quiet and comfortable. Only small issue was that there are storage cabinets in front of this seat (between first class and business) where on my flight they stored bottles of water they handed out to business class. So several times during the flight there were attendants opening and closing the cabinets. Though I could tell they were making every effort to be quiet and respectful about it. I plan on selecting this seat again on future flights.
Pro - Last row in PE so reclining the seat does not affect anyone. Legroom pretty good. Cons - The last row on PE somewhat protrudes into the EY section and you are seated almost parallel to row 39 middle row. Furthermore, Cathay does not draw the curtains inflight and EY passengers constantly enter the "premium" cabin to use the toilet. On a short regional trip (3-4 hrs) the extra cost of PE is not worth it. Meal and service is no different from sitting in EY. You are paying for "Premium" class but not made to feel as if you are, except for the extra space of the seat. A disappointing experience.
As good as AA 773 business class, not bad for a 12 hrs flight
I had this seat on a very long flight from Hong Kong to Chicago. Compared to the seat I had on the way over (20K), I found this seat to be more spacious. I am 6'4" and on the flatbed in seat 20K I could not stretch out completely, but in this seat I had almost two inches of space left even when completely stretched out! As a result I slept very comfortable for almost seven hours.
Great seat but be careful steward will push cart into your knees
BOS - HK Seat 12 G Pros- Seat was comfortable, noise canceling headset was great, huge overhead storage bin, food and service was wonderful Cons - Noise from Restroom and Galley was constant and kept me waking me up.
