Syd­ney to San Fran­cisco via Auck­land Boe­ing 777 Busi­ness Class, seat 1J

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. Food was of high qual­ity, show­cas­ing fresh NZ pro­duce and was matched with premium Kiwi wines. The lounge in Auck­land is spa­cious and light with a va­ri­ety of seat­ing op­tions, in­clud­ing a cov­ered out­door ter­race. There are also plenty of show­ers.
