Airplane seat reviews by Alan Kay

ToManchester - Manchester (MAN)

Boarding at IST was fairly quick with priority given to Business Class passengers. Welcome drinks were served rather late due to the constant stream of passengers queuing to move to the rear of the aircraft. The seat was quite uneven and I suspect rather old. The cabin service was good with a hot breakfast served shortly after takeoff. The food was good. Towards the end of the <4hr flight I asked for a dental kit but none was available.

This was the first time that I flew in the A350-900. The cabin was clean and gave the impression of spaciousness. The flight was smooth and with relatively low noise. The pressurization system worked very well with little problems with ear pressure. Cabin crew were attentive and the food was well presented. I did not like the salt and pepper grinders which I found too small for me to effectively grip and twist. Of more concern was the positioning of the food tray which extended to a point about 40cm away from me. This meant having to lean forward in the seat in order to eat. Eventually I tired of this and placed a folded blanket behind my back. But, overall an enjoyable flight.
