There is no storage space at all. And the risk that passengers passing the seat bumo into you because the aisle becomes narrow here.
absolutely terrible this layout 3x43x. Too narrow and a mass of people. The plane when full is so heavy it drops out of the air when landing. Definitely NOT a 5 star service.
This is a spacious seat with overhead locker opposite instead of above allowing quick access upon departure. It is beside air hostess meal preparation area and the toilets directly behind pilot cabin but it was very quiet and I slept for six hours comfortably . Well done Qatar
Qatar Airways new 10-abreast setup in Economy Class Boeing 777-300 is a total disaster. Someone has described it as crime against humanity, and after trying it out I can only agree. I was very determined when I asked the travel agent to book an aisle seat, but that didn't help much. The seats are hard and narrow, and you don't really know where to place your elbows. I am by no means a broad person, but I am Scandinavian, and we aren't as tiny as many people in Asia. From flying just 6 hours from Copenhagen to Doha I got severe back and neck pain from sitting in a wrong, forced position. I will never fly this aircraft and this configuration again. I have flown Thai Airways in a 9-abreast configuration, which was perfectly comfortable, and will be very aware of avoiding any 10-abreast configuration, except for the Airbus 380. On the return trip to Doha I sat in 11C one way and 19H the other way. The experience was similiar.
armrest immovable , horrible seat, narrow and v uncomfortable
Very comfortable seat. Nice and quiet, but this might've been because flight wasn't full. Very pleasant, smooth flight.
On the positive side the seat has the same recline as other rows and as there is no one behind there is no need to bring you seat back up when meals are served. It's not the most comfortable seat I've travelled on and I'm glad it was only for a 7 hour flight.
Excellent personalized check in by a sweet natured lady. Extreme punctuality and excellent service.
Ok so I fly Qatar where I can all the time and fly them a fair bit in last two years. I tried this flight deliberately as it was a 777 and have mainly flown A380 and A350 with Qatar and also to get a morning arrival in Sydney. I don't often get disappointed with Qatar but this time got annoyed with check in information. When I checked in at Bucharest on my first leg I asked if anyone was next to me on the second leg as I am a big guy, they said no, seats were blocked. I thought great. Got on board window left hand side economy, 17A and find that I do get two people next to me. I said to stewardess could she do something and she apologised and asked cabin manager and they said the front row in the middle of cabin just behind business class dividers was free. I said thanks and moved to 10E aisle seat just behind business class. Seat was excellent for legroom as you can stretch legs right out and also stand easily to stretch if need be. Service was excellent at front of economy getting everything first in that seat and short walk to toilets behind. Only thing is it is a baby row and you may get a young baby who cries all the way. Only problem was this row has the IFE screen in the seat armrest and it folds out and up and doesn't quite sit at the right angle and screen very old and dull. Rest as usual is exceptional, with the attention to detail from cabin staff spot on. The 777 for me though seems a little old and tired, maybe I just prefer Airbus planes.
Very good service, good entertaiment, good food and wonderfull indulgencies. Congrats!!! :-)
The benefits of this seat are the extra legroom however the seat is narrower, the armrest immoveable, there is nowhere to store belongings and no window.
This Aircraft Type V1 should be declared as a crime against humanity. This is the finest example of How greedy an airline can get and how low they can stoop to just make a few extra dollars. They added 23 more seats (Yes, a measly 23) from type V3 so that they can cram in 316 economy passengers in V1 instead of 293 as in V3. While 23 looks like a small number, it completely destroys the sanity and health of all 316 economy passengers. They introduced a 4th seat in middle row. It cut every seat width by 2 inches to just 17 inches and making the aisles extremely narrow. Even the staff is so fed up working this lousy aircraft, it shows in their service. Reclining is almost non existant. Animals are transported better in their pens. Why there is no mass outrage or government intervention to prevent this literally a crime against humanity is beyond me. Shame on Qatar or any other airline that employs this torturous configuration.
Avoid this airplane! Very narrow seats, arm rests and aisles. A horrible way to spend 14 hours. Give us back the 3-3-3 seating!!!
This is the seat to be, if you are in economy. It is 2 seat row, so you have quite a lot of space for your legs.
Great seat, missing a seat in front so endless legroom
The last row in Business Class gets lots of noise from the bassinets - not just the two seats directly in front them. One poor baby (and parents) in row 8 cried the entire way from Dallas to Doha.
It was the smallest seat I had to endure for the duration of what felt like a 15+ hour flight from doha to dfw. It was cramped, lacked legroom or storage of any kind. The plane was crowded, the service was terrible and overall would not recommend this route, this seat or this carrier to anyone.
Flew QA Doha to Perth & return. 11 hour flight, comfortable, well served by QA staff and overall two flights that were as enjoyable as they could be in economy.
I am amazed how narrow the aisles are! It is hard to walk with a bag... QA squeezed 4 seats in the middle row of B777 instead of 3...
Had two long haul flights on the 777-300ER São Paulo - Doha and back. The 3-4-3 configuration in Economy means you are always rubbing elbows and shoulders. On the outbound I had a middle exit row (18B) which I chose to be able to stretch my long legs and coming back on the 32D which Seatguru correctly identifies as the one with no seat in front (contrary to what the Qatar website shows) Same for 20D and 12D. Flying should be enjoyable and not something you have to endure for 13-14 hours ... crowded flight, average service and finite space available to sit down and hope time goes by quickly
