On board our A380s and A330s we've upgraded the seats with softer cushioning, a netted footrest for a deeper recline and more legroom for extra comfort on longer journeys. Sit back and relax in an ergonomic slimline seat with built-in lumbar support. The adjustable headrest, with side wings supports your head while sleeping, and seat recline aims to maximise your comfort.

On our Dreamliner B787s you’ll enjoy the next generation and award-winning Recaro seat, ergonomically designed for optimal comfort. Everything has been thought of to support your travel needs – mood lights, storage areas and even a personal electronic device shelf. A new foot net provides additional support and further enhances the ergonomics when travelling on longer flights.
