This variant has 10 seats per row in economy (3/4/3) - as opposed to 9 (3/3/3) in other configurations. To achieve this the seats are less comfortable, and you are closer to the person in the next seat. The seat width may be more-or-less the same, but there is more than your bottom that needs space. Importantly, the other thing done is to make the aisle narrower so that if you have an aisle seat you are inevitably going to get banged in to during the flight, and that could mean you are woken up. Not a quality move by Cathay. That coincides with other quality cuts not specific to this seat plan. I will choose a different airline if I can in future. I must have had a 100 plus flights with Cathay, but their attitude is changing. And so is mine.
On both legs of my trip from LAX to HK my Cathay flight had the 3:4:3 configuration of seats. I will never fly an airline longhaul like this again. I have never had a worse flight, it was beyond cramped with no legroom, the most narrow seat and the curve of the aircraft impeding my space. A really terrible seat on a really terrible flight. I used love Cathay, but since they've changed the number of seats in economy, I won't fly anymore.
