Reply To: Direct Aisle Access

Back to Forum


The CW seat isn’t particularly private, especially in the middle pair! Even in the other seats, though, you get to eyeball your neighbour during take-off and landing with the divider down. Every time anything is served to someone in the non-aisle seat, the divider drops and you are either (a) disturbed by things being passed to your neighbour if you are in the aisle seat or (b) very aware of the fact that your neighbour is being disturbed if you are in the non-aisle seat – and in both cases, you are eyeballing you rneighbour again. I hate it.

The new CX seat is angled slightly away from the aisle, and there is a good-sized wrap-around headboard – plenty of privacy. The seats move forward or backward about a foot – so if you want to speak to your neighbour, use the centre pair and slide your seats forward. When slid back, the centre panel provides adequate privacy, and if you leave the mini-cupboard door open it acts as an additional privacy screen.
