Sit in this seat if you like to have condensation from the AC dripping on you for the duration of your flight. KLM is completely aware of the problem but continues to sell the seat.
Economy Comfort still uses an old-style cabin equipment set. No power, no touch-screen, brightness of screen is extremely low even on maximum brightness. Plenty of overhead storage and legroom however.
The seat has limited legroom due to the entertainment box under the seat in front and the remote control being inside the armrest meant the screen was constantly on and off. When the seat in front was reclined the screen was very close indeed to my face and this was not helped by the fact that 43C would not recline. All in all a most uncomfortable and very narrow seat.
This seat has significantly less legroom than the other two in this row since the edge of the emergency exit gets in the way. I was sitting in the middle seat, but switched to this seat so the guy who has seating here and much taller than me, could actually sit comfortably. I'm 5'2 and had just enough room for my legs. It's not worth to pay extra if you're a tall person
For the extra money, this seat was completely worth the price. I am 5 foot 6 inches tall and sat in B seat after learning about the electronic boxes. My boyfriend (6 foot 3 inches), sat in C and was able to stretch his legs into my area and then I was able to stretch in the area to my left. There was so much room there we were able to put our backpacks from the overhead and have everything within our reach instead of continually getting up and down. At some point during the flight we did end up switching seats and he sat in B and completely stretched his legs into the opening.
Seat 77B on the upper deck of this KLM plane was really nice. In fact, I really enjoyed traveling on this upper deck. It felt really spacious and relaxed with a large, open, empty area immediately infront of row 77. While there isn't a full divider between passengers sitting in A & B or J & K, I still felt that I had some privacy. The entertainment centers are positioned in such a way to not be too intrusive for the other person. Note that the bathrooms seemed considerably smaller than on other flights -- but that was only a minor issue.
So-so. Not much foot room for a eisle seat. AC, fans blew right on this person but just an older plane.
Economy Plus seat by window. Roomy but a little far from window so hard to lean against. Foot space good. Not most comfortable seat on a long flight. Entertainment display is getting old also. Nice that EP is separate section.
Very very tight seat for a person of normal weight!! Paid extra for this one. Never experienced this before. Control panel was painfully sticking into my thigh. I had it removed and put it on the floor. But there was still a case wich stuck out of the chair. Legs more then enough room but ofcourse allways people stretching there legs there and stumble over your feet. No charger or USB. Nice crew but very oldfashioned plane. Wouldn't recomend it to anyone: imagene the same crampy seat without room for your legs!!
Good seat, economy comfort. Better then the 12E seat that has less legroom. This has no obstructions at the legspace
This Seat has only half leg space because of an box under seat 35B. There is no space for a left leg. The seat 36B is bad (may be good for a pirate with only a right leg).
Amazing view, both engines lined up nice at the same angle when I looked back. Had two windows and could see a lot of the scenery. Was a great flight and I had lots of leg room. I upgraded my seat because this was my first and probably last time on a 747. Old but great plane!
65 B & C were great for a couple. There is a box in front of b, but husband shared my leg space since there's no divider, so it was fine. Able to store bags on the side in the gap between the wall and seat. Can't lean against the wall, but headrest curls up deeply so that made up for it. Back of plane has lots of space to stand and stretch between toilets and no commotion since no galley in the back. Even with the dated media, we'd fly this plane again for a long haul flight, and KLM has great service and food.
Dont waste your money on Economy Comfort seats...you get a better deal for less when you choose the Emergecy Exit seats. Im 64 and i have regretted my decision after i flew to Amsterdam. I had more leg room flying Boeing 787 Dreamliner.
This seat has a slightly larger footrest/cubby compared to other seats, which makes it better for sleeping
I upgraded at check-in and got a really fine seat in Business class. It was roomy and comfortable - a real pleasure! One disappointment, though, and it was quite a surprise. The lavatory was TINY and very cramped. I would have hoped for, and really expected, a toilet with somewhat more room than this.
Hi, I actually was in seat 40C. But I noticed that seat 40B had some electronics underneath the row in front and thus had less leg room. Kind regards, Wesley Korver
The seat is very comfortable although not as private as previous reviews have suggested. I was very aware of the couple in the row opposite. It is best in bed mode and I had a very pleasant sleep.
Seat has limited leg space due to fixed box under front seat
Under seat in front (11E) is a big metalbox which restrict the space for your feet which makes this seat unrecommended.
