But for the sake of a couple wanting to sit together – I feel like they can deal.
There is such a thing as advanced seat selection, unless they upgraded at the gate or were flying Standby.
The aircraft configuration is fairly dense / economy-class heavy with 8 seats in First (suites), 42 angle-flat seats in Business and 304 standard economy class seats.
I have received some feedback regarding the types of seat which constitutes “lie-flat” vs. “flat-bed” so here is my general rule of thumb when I use such terminology: But I digress…for more information on the types of Business Class seats that global airlines offer, Seat Guru has a great breakdown.
Anyways, today’s flight on the 777-300ER would feature the older seat, which has a 60 inch pitch and 20.5 inch seat width arranged in a 2-3-2 configuration.
To be honest, it has been awhile since I have sat in a premium class seat that featured 2 seats on one side of the aisle (trying to say that without sound absolutely, horrendously pretentious is near impossible, I know) so that was a bit of an adjustment factor.
The Chicken Tikka Salad came first, and was served with Cucumber, Tomato, Beet Root and Minted Yogurt.
The combination of the flavors was definitely interesting and refreshing, and the salad complemented the dish well as a starter. I was a bit surprised that Emirates does not serve Amaretto in J-Class.
Next came the Prawns, which really was just two prawns served with some salsa (mango coriander) and smoked pepper cream. Breakfast service, which was served prior to landing, was very basic.
Part of me is slightly surprised given the fact that American serves two full meals in Business class on transatlantic red-eye flights, whereas Emirates does not? Emirates’ ICE system, which stands for Information, Communication and Entertainment, is one of the best entertainment programs out there.
