There was minimal noise from the galley, not enough to be intrusive. Seat was very comfortable and plenty of legroom in the bulkhead. Only issue is that the first row power plug are tucked under the seat and require you to get down on your hands and knees to locate/plug in. The USB plug is easily accessible.
This QATAR flight uses a LATAM A350 in 2-2-2 configuration. The aircraft can’t cope with that layout on long flights. This is in contrast to the 1-2-1 displayed when I checked in and booked my seat - something rather odd here that the aircraft configuration offered on checking in just a few hours earlier doesn’t match the a350 I thought I was checking in for. It’s a bloody awful layout as the beds are so wide at the foot to need to twist you ankle to get your food between the seats to get our, or in the end you just stand on the seat and lead over your sleeping Neighbour. Food was fine but you think the staff are goin to drop everything in your lap as the lean over to try to serve you. Avoid window seats in this LATAM aircraft.
Ok so I flew Business Class on 2 December 2018 from Sydney to Doha and deliberately booked on the 777-300 ER, not my normal choice of aircraft, as I prefer the A380 for long haul, but I was desperate to try the Qsuite, which is yet to be fitted to the A380. Its a pity that the map here does not reflect the new Qsuite layout and still has the old configuration. I messaged Seat Maestro pointing this out but no reply and map still old, but I will review anyway. Most of Qatars fleet of 777-300ER and 777-200LR have been fitted, but check seat maps and ask if you want to try it because it is definitely worth it; better than some First Class products. Essentially Qsuite has a 1 - 2 - 1 configuration with 48 suites in Business Class. Rows 1-6 are ahead of the front exit and rows 7 to 11 are behind the second entrance/exit door, so if you are in 1-6 you board separately and dont get disturbed, in 1-11 you still board first but then have all economy boarding through the door ahead of you and coming past. Until take off your sliding door to the suite is locked in the open position. I was in 11B which is a window, left hand side and last row before economy class curtain divider. First the pod or suite itself. Simply outstanding, it really is like your own small room with ample bench space, large fold out table with several adjustments. One thing they got right now is the seat pitch, old business you always sat too high and slightly reclined which felt awkward and lifted your feet off the ground, this is flat and straight backed now. One thing I really liked is the seat now doesn't have a leg extender that raises you feet off the ground, instead the seat slides forward or backward to bring your legs closer to the feet rest. The leg extender always left your legs at an odd angle and still hanging down so no good for DVT on long flights. One thing I wont say I disliked but was a bit annoying, the main storage bin to the left under a cushion is well tucked away but a bit fiddly trying to get the lid open and closed. Then if you have stuff on top of the cushion and want to get into the bin, you have to move it all and the lid gets caught on the seat belt unless you lift it out of the way. But aside from that very comfortable and like a little oasis, especially with the sliding door that fully seals you in. The seat position itself in 11B, great view of the engine and wing leading edge and despite being near the economy divider curtain, it was ok, didn't notice anything. If you are one of these people though who really prefers no disturbance of curtain being drawn and closed or a family maybe behind you in economy with a young child, then get a seat further forward. The Qsuite though is outstanding and so much better than the old business pods which were still a great product, but now you sit lower and are enclosed and feel very private as you dont see everyone else now, the old seats you sat up very high and could see everyone. I only marked entertainment down slightly as the World Map on this flight was a version with less control than normal. Service as always impeccable on Qatar and staff exceptional in Business, but that has always been my experience in economy as well with them. I forgot the stewards name serving my section of about 6 people, but he was from Serbia had been with them 2 years, so if you read this, big thanks to you, your manner and service was above and beyond.
This seat was amazing, not only did I have a wing view (I love the wing of the 77ER), but the seats are so wide you really sink into them. The screens are large and crisp, brightness is perfect and the tables are so spacey that you can eat food and at the same time use the table for your armrest. legspace is amazing, i scretched out completely and slept really good on a 7Hour flight (FRA-DOH)
Sorry Qatar this setup of 3 4 3 is to small,your service is top class ,but for over sixhours with somebody who put their seat in your lap for the whole flight is no fun!On my return flight from Amsterdam i was lucky and had nobody next to me ,and the person in front left the seat upright, your service and staff are great,good meals plenty of drinks.Thank you.
Lots of leg room because of the missing seat in front, but the seat is even more narrow than the already narrow seats on this aircraft due to the monitor and table being in fixed armrest. Also, no seat pocket or under seat storage. Constantly being stepped upon with the open leg room area. Would not recommend.
Best thing about this seat is you don´t have a seat in front of view and enough space to stretch the legs. But then it´s over with the positive things because with no seat in front you don´t have a pocket or something to store your belongings. But the worst thing about all seats in Qatar´s 3-4-3 Boeing 777 is the width of the seat. Never ever felt on any flight so close to the guy next to me like on this flight. Both of us were neither athletic or strong but we were touching shoulder to shoulder all the time. Can´t imagine going on Qatar Air on a North America flight for 15 hours. Considering Qatar is the airline of the year 2017 this economy class seat comfort is just pure disappointment.
This is the worst long haul flight I have ever flown to or from Perth. The seats are so narrow even for slim people. I sat by the window which usually has more space because of the plane curvature. This plane and seat did not. The armrest was right up against the body of the plane. Leg room was okay but width was atrocious. Leaving Doha it took the staff 2hrs before serving food and then another hour to collect the food containers. When you leave at 2am and it takes them until 5am to clear away when the sun is just coming up it doesn't allow for sleep. Also window shades were not closed by a number of people making the plane light and impossible to sleep. As we had caught a connecting flight from Manchester that meant 20 hours without sleep. I won't fly Qatar long haul out of Perth ever again.
Good leg room, good space under the seat in front of you.
The seat was quite hard with little cushioning. The supplied pillow helped a little bit but not on the bottom. Food and service was great, but this plane looks and feels a little dated. Although it says that there is an entertainment box underneath the seat, I did not see one present. Seats feel a little cramped in 3-4-3 configuration. Kept bumping elbows and shoulders into the person in 29B despite us both being fairly thin and small people.
Flew this V2 layout twice in past week, so I'm sharing updates. Current SeatGuru advice on AV equipment boxes under seats is incorrect -- the AV boxes are now under seats B, G, J, but don't stress about it, because these new boxes are very slim and don't take up much space. F&B service was inconsistent: on first flight mid-afternoon, they pushed a full beverage cart to offer drinks with the meal. On return flight, early evening, they handed out tiny packs of juice, no beverage cart with other options. If you want wine, ask for it --- this airline doesn't seem to offer it, but has it available in the carts!
Horrible. This was a DOH to MNL flight. Totally packed in like sardines. Many Filipinos returning from overseas work. I suppose Qatar does not feel the need to provide decent seating. The 3-4-3 seating is narrow. The legroom is OK. Just inhuman cattle-car seating. Next tome we will pay more to get an airline which offers better seating.
Flew Qatar from Doha to Bangkok on April 1st in a newer 777 wide body. My seat was 15C which is an aisle on a side that is next to the windows. Economy seating was 3-4-3. Plenty of leg room, the seat reclined but not a whole lot. I found it hard to get comfortable, but I am a wiggly person. They provided a nice pillow, blanket, no amenity kit. 2 meals were served, dinner and breakfast for a 6 hour flight. Food was just o.k. The video monitor was in the seat back in front of me and was a nice size. The remote was located under it, and a USB charging port to the side. This was a fairly new plane and overall pretty comfortable. It has a large passenger capacity but I didn't notice any issues. Row 10 which is marked yellow has a TON of leg room, as well as Row 26. Exit row, next to doors. There is a LOT of overhead storage. They did board using a separate entrance and exit for business passengers. Lie Flat beds, It is a smaller cabin.
Having travelled outbound on the A380, the impression given by the 773 is very poor. Horribly cramped with the 3-4-3 layout. 10 abreast is simply too many for this aircraft. Unable to pass along the narrow aisle, and virtually no elbow room when sitting. Legroom is average . If you have any sort of choice avoid the QR 777 in this layout.
Even though this is a very dated hard product, it was one of the best experiences I've had in the air. The Qatar service, food, and drinks are outstanding. I found the seat to be comfortable and spacious. I was fortunate in that no one was seated in 3E, so I didn't experience any privacy problems. Slept 7.5 hours and could have gone longer, but I asked to be woken up for breakfast. I flew the A350 coming back home, and I honestly can't say it was significantly better
MIA-DOH The seat was great with lots of adjustments. Until I tried to sleep. The pad the FA made the bed with was about 1/8 inch thick which didn't help the rock hard seat. Uncomfortable to sleep but it was only 14 hours to DOH. Hopefully MIA will get an A350 soon.
Accidental choice; assumed we'd be on 777-V1 (as outbound flt). The 10 across config ensured the fat Guy next to me couldn't help but spill into my seat. We were really crushed for width. I had to climb onto the armrest & jump over him into the aisle to go to the WC. Easier than waking him & asking him to squeeze out. Scared the cr*p out of him when I had to climb back over him. Poor fella. We played elbows a bit, but I found it easier just to rest my arm on his. Loadsa legroom though. Person in front only reclined part-way. Seat was well designed & comfortable for sleep. Slept like a baby the rest of the flight, even through b'fast. ife was sound. Will avoid this config in future though or ensure an aisle seat, as I do not like to be crushed.
Wasn't too keen originally on having another middle seat but the flight was pretty empty and so I had the middle 4 seats to myself which gave me a decent amount of room to relax given that I'm 6'2 and the service was great I highly recommend Qatar airways to anyone who is travelling long distances
I usually don't have a middle seat but this one was pretty good, decent recline and comfortable all round for a 14.5 hour flight
Very bad seat. The seat width is like all other economy class seats on the 777 poor and feels very cramped, even for a pretty athletic person like I am. In addition this seat is close to the lavatories which makes it very noisy. But the worst thing was, that almost everybody passing by pumped into me due to exposed position of the seat, which made sleeping impossible.
