Limited legspace due to offset of the seat and interior bent inwards.
Seat was comfortable, food excellent and the service was the very best - couldn't have been better!!! The upper deck is quite cosy - I love the good old Jumbo!
the entire row 29 is really bad. It is sold by Lufthansa as 'extra leg space' for some 100,-EUR. That much is true, but: fold up tables and fold up Screens are in the arm rests, which make them bulky, stiff and the width of the seat is reduced. In particular the 29C+H stick out into the aisle behind the recss of premium economy. Passenger are hit by everyone passing. Besides the foldup Screens there are big Screens in the back rest of the premium economy in front. These sccreens cannot be controlled. Thus These are always on with the flight Information and can't be dimmed - a nuissance on 11h hour if you want to sleep. The essence: worst row in thi splane
Row 29 is the best seat row in Economy. There is no solid bulkhead in front but a large gap to the last row of Premium Economy. Huge legroom.
83K is indeed one of the better seats. The window seat gives you more room for your feet than the aisle seats. 83K also has room for a small bag on the side - which the other business seats on the upper deck do not offer.
29C and all of row 29 is exactly as others have commented. No bulkhead, just a lot of space between this row and Prem Eco row in front. I'm rethinking about posting this - I really don't want anyone to nab this seat!
The back of the seat can be tilted backward only limited because of the wall behind. When the aircraft is parked, it is very warm because the air conditioning is not or not sufficiently cool and the waste heat in the rear area is very high. When the plane departs and during flight, the aircondition solves the problem. The legroom is very limited, the table is only half foldable (if you still want to breathe). If the front man folds his back, it becomes completely uncomfortable and you feel like a sardine in the can.
If you're tall (6 feet or more) you will find more legroom if you pick a window seat (A or K) as there is a ledge underneath the window where you can put your feet when the bed is in the fully-flat position. The aisle seats force your feet into a narrow pocket that is quite uncomfortable.
Row 85 A and C are good picks because you do not have anybody behind you who kicks or slams their feet down on their foot rest waking you up. Also it is away from most galley and lavatory traffic. The only drawback to the upper deck is the WC situation. The upper deck plan shows 2 lavatories ...... However, 1 is reserved for the cockpit crew and is separated from the upper deck by a door and not accessible. This means that 22 passengers must share this tiny toilet or go down to the main deck between rows 4 and 10 and look for a vacant WC.
The proximity to the restrooms resulted in bad smells coming from the toilets. Very unpleasant, particularly during the meal time...
Lufthansa has done a great job of keeping the 747-400 updated. The business class seats are high tech and very comfortable. Flights from SEA FRA and return in seats 2A and 2C were great in all respects. Location means that you are served first and there is no traffic to rest rooms except for row 1. That row is also a good location except it is a bit narrower and the screens are mounted on the bulkhead. The food and service on these flights were excellent, a standard that others should adopt.
I had seat 24F. There was enough space. Because of the bulkhead, there was little bit more legroom and it was much easier to come to your seat, so your neighbor didnt need to get off his seat. The overhead box for carry-on baggage was smaller, than the other ones, so it was hard to insert the full-size carry-on baggage of seat 24F and 24G. The proximity to the onboard kitchen didnt bothered me, because there were no noises and no smelling. I would go on this seat again, if i would have the opportunity.
The central aisle seats have the most foot room. There are four seats across, but only three footwells, so the two seats in the middle share a footwell. The footwells on the aisle seats are oversized. You might end up sharing part of that with a middle seater, but if you don't it's much easier to stretch your legs. The aisle seats in the window section have reduced size footwells. I had one of those on another flight.
Absolutely the best seating arrangement!
The business class seat for this flight from Frankfurt to Mumbai had ample space as described and is almost flatbed recline. Comfortable and recommended...Unless you can get yourself a window on the upper deck!
All row 43 on this flight was an "infant" row, with room for 4 bassinets in total (one left side, one right side, two middle). Good legroom (I am not very tall) but no support for feet. IFE system and tray table are in the armrest. Any luggage must be stored for take off and landing. The plane is rather old.
Row 29 on Lufthansa's 747-400 is without a doubt the best row in Economy. It's the first row in Economy, directly behind Premium Economy. Leg room is more than ample, and there is no bulkhead wall or partition or even a curtain which would reduce your legroom, so the comments about 'restricted legroom' are completely inaccurate. The IFE system and tray table are in the armrest, so it's true that width is slightly reduced, but only slightly, and it's more than made up for by all the extra legroom you have. I would prefer this row even over the exit row in Economy.
All seats in row 29 have extended legroom, there is no bulkhead in front - I think these are the best seats in the economy cabin apart from the emergeny exit seats. It is also worth noting, that the premium economy cabin is in a 2-3-2 configuration. Because of this, seats in row 29 have all their video screens in the armrest, making the seat somewhat narrower.
Seats are barely ok.You do have a little extra space to stretch.Seats are very narrow,not comfortable.Lavatories are very small and uncomfortable to use. Service on this flight was non existent.Apart from meals,no crew member was seen.Plane is rather old, food was gross and very small portions.Thankyfully we had had dinner at the airport before boarding, would have been very hungry otherwise. Coffe for breakfast was served after we were already done with the sandwich, and only one serving.We definitely wouldn´t recommend this flight in economy.
There is no any bulkhead in front of this row. It should be marked green, as there is extra leg room. between premium Economy and Economy class. Also you may still place your hand luggagge in front seats (Premium Economy). It might be some kind of discomfort due to table trays hidden in arm supports
