Hi everyone, and greetings from sunny Auckland.
To answer the query about seatbelts, here’s what ANZ said:
“The ‘normal’ seatbelts on the seat have been made slightly longer to allow the flexibility for someone to use them while they are lying down. When a second person is also lying down beside them, then they would be given a standard extension seat belt to loop through the first person’s belt similar to how infants are dealt with today.
“Provided the passengers use it in this way there is no reason to wake them for turbulence.”
Also, picking up on another point raised, the B777-300ER economy seats are actually narrower than on the B777-200ER, at 17″ rather than 17.8″. ANZ has also slimmed down the aisles in the EC cabin, allowing it to squeeze in a 3-4-3 configuration on the new plane, as opposed to the 777-2’s 3-3-3.
