There is an AV/utility box under 95C (in front of 96C) which restrict the under-seat leg room for people sitting in 96C. 96H may have the same issue. I would avoid 96C and 96H
This seat, as well as the others in the same row in the centre of the cabin, does not have any floor stowage due to the bulkhead. Additionally it does not have a latch bin above either due to the stairs to the upper deck. This was causing problems on the flight I have just been on for passengers seated here, as they had nowhere to put their carry on bags.
The seat has less legroom than the normal seats as you can not stretch out the legs as the wall is in front.
If you pay extra for your comfort, you don’t expect a seat with a minimum on legs space. Under the seat is a box installed wich cost you a lot of space for your legs. It is not possible to sit wilde with your legs.
I paid to secure this seat in the small economy section on the lower level when I booked. The only better section is probably the economy section on the upper level. I always chose an aisle seat in the centre section to limit the disruption from neighbours trying to get out. There was plenty of leg room, foot room and seat width. The seats are well padded and I didn't have any serious discomfort on the long flight from FRA to SIN. My only complaint was that the headphone socket on my seat was very slack. It was difficult to position the plug to make enough contact to get sound I could listen to. I would definitely fly this aircraft again.
We flew in 98H and 98K on 5/12/19. We loved the seats. Best service ever as small economy section on the second level received excellent service by the stewardess. Large, deep storage section between 98K and the window for purse, pillows, and more. Highly recommend! No problem with bath nearby.
SFO - MUC Premium Eco on A380, second row of P.E. Very comfortable seat and plenty of legroom plus extra space / armrest towards your neighbor. Great service and food. Although there is a staircase towards upper floor / business right next to seat, it is very quiet, as only F.A.s use the staircase in flight.
It was the most modern seat ever. Very spacious and had extra leg room since I was in row 1. Great crew and great food!
Seat 52D (or G) in Premium Economy on the A380 is an odd seat where you feel like you're sitting in the middle of the aisle but the reality is its great for people who like their space, have long legs or prefer bulkhead seats in general. In terms of comfort, the leg rest, recline and seat pitch is far superior to United's Economy Plus but I think I'd still prefer United's new Premium Economy on long haul flights although I have yet to try it. If I take this flight again in the future, I would prefer to be in Row 50.
Excellent space, good seat, big window, good food and very good also for sleeping
I can't believe someone would say that 50A is not good for solo travelers. It's the best seat in premium economy for a solo traveler! You get a window seat that you can easily get in and out of (even with a meal tray on your tray table) without bothering the person in 50C which can't easily be done in any other window seat in premium economy. The bulkhead wall is far enough away that at 183cm I had my legs fully extended so no worries about leg room unless you're significantly taller than that. No one is reclining into you and there's no galleys or bathrooms to the front so no traffic passes by your seat. People have mentioned the fold out IFE screen that can't be used on take off or landing as a negative, but really it's less than 10% of a long haul flight and we all have music, videos, etc on our phones so who cares when you have all these positives?
Lufthansa’s A380 economy class offers lot of comfort and legroom on the upper deck. The cabin is very quiet and meals are good for eco ones. Great !
My wife and I like the seats in the last row because we do not bother anyone when we move our seat backs. The angle of inclination of the backrest is in order. One should know that at Lufthansa, the inner armrests of these seats can only be folded upwards about 45 °, if you want to put a younger child across center square, this works only partially. The light of the toilet shield on the seat backs is quite bright. The traffic to the four toilets in the rear was manageable and did not bother us. At 94C, the Mediabox under seat 93C narrows the footwell a little.
Perfect Seats. Great legroom In case you find the toilets bothering: Wear eyeshades, earplugs . We had a perfect trip, slept 9 out 11 hours. Of course with start & landing you need to stow your belongings, but after you have plenty of time and space to place them in front of you. Good staff and good food Next time I ll book them again
Very Poor Seat Pitch and Width for Trans-Atlantic Flight journey of 11 hours
This seat has a fixed metal box on the right-hand side underneath the seat in front of it. It consumes roughly 1/3 of the legroom, making it difficult to stretch out or place any personal items under the seat. In addition, due to low overhead storage capacity, extra cabin baggage needed to be placed in business class, which could not be accessed during the flight.
I have made 4 flights on Lufthansa to Munich and Frankfurt in the past year. Its a 11+ hour and requires business class to be enjoyable, Prem econ to be ok and Economy to teach you a lesson that over 7 hours you book Business.!!!. It is not that much more. I prefer the center 2x2 lie flat seats, as you have aisle access any time. Seats come with a large comforter and HUGE pillow and for the overnight flight you arrive well rested... Entertainment was excellent, headphones are bose! Food and wine great 5 course meal, mid flight snack and pre landing meal. These seats are actualy better than the First class !! ( flew those) This is Lufthansa's best after the A340. Skip the 747... but those are going away soon.
Best economy seat in the aircraft for night flights! unlimited legroom. Downsides are no window view and having to stow the IFE during take-off and landing, which I did not like as I would like to watch the on-board cameras. The placement of the USB connector and earplugs is placed inconvenietly inward the seat which resulted in bumping into them all the time.
Standard economy seat in the rear of the second deck. Unfortunately the entertainment screen was very small, unresponsive and damaged as well as other screens in the surrounding area making for a long 11 hour flight. The A380 is definitely starting to show its age in that respect. By sitting in this seat, you have one flight attendant dedicated to serving your economy section so service is quick and more personal than the lower deck economy. (Really helped make this flight much more enjoyable from MUC-MIA.) The overhead compartments appear to be a very reduced size making almost any hand luggage difficult to fit due to the tight squeeze. The seat itself is an average economy seat that is a bit tight for someone over 6ft, of course that is expected in an economy seat. I personally would not fly in any Lufthansa economy seat again due to the actual seat size and legroom but for shorter passengers this can be a good seat.
This seat is not good because there is a box underneath 88H which holds the foldable entertainment system. It is very inconvenient to for your legs as there are sharp hard edges of this box.
