Seats are arranged in a herringbone layout so all have access to the aisle. There is a separate footrest which can be used not just for your feet but for visitors, as it has a separate seatbelt. The tray table can be used between two people so its possible to share a meal together. Because of the special seat belt and aisle access, seats can be reclined for landing and takeoff. For sleeping the seat folds fully forward to create a comfortable lie flat bed. A mattress, quilt and pillows are provided. There are also plenty of nooks and crannies to keep personal belongings during the flight.
The entertainment screen sits adjacent to the seat on a moving arm so can be positioned according to your needs. The responsive touch screen is live as soon as you board, with a standard range of on-demand movies and TV shows. Wi-fi was not available on board. The crew were very attentive to passenger needs.
