A comfortable business class seat but the ‘A’ row seats are staggered so that one seat has the console next to the window with the seat by the aisle and the following seat has the seat directly next to the window and the console by the aisle. Those seats that are situated directly by the window have slightly more privacy and better viewing out of the windows as well. The seats that are directly next to the windows are numbered ‘2-4-6....’. Unfortunately, with my having seat #3A, I had my console next to the window and my seat adjacent to the aisle.

Comfortable enough for a 6.0ft tall individual like myself. However, being as this is a seat closest to the tail and rear gulleys, the noise from the busy crew and the environment is very intrusive. The seat is next to an added partition which is used for storage and access to it ny the crew is frequent. In addition , the sensitivity to turbulence appears to be much higher in that location.

About what one would expect for an economy seat-a generally uncomfortable and confining space. Service a bit worse than expected. Entertainment system above average.
