Reply To: Cathay Pacific New Business Class Seat

Back to Forum


I have flown CX many times between NY and HK in Business Class and I absolutely LOATHE the new herringbone business seats. They are
uncomfortable, totally claustrophobic, there is no arm room, one cannot even open a newspaper to full width, and if you are travelling with a
companion you cannot communicate with them as they are in their
own separate cell. CX claims that passengers wanted privacy – well
then how about having a roll down partition so that if you don’t want
to feel totally hemmed in you have the option to open your space
which would also permit talking to a travel companion or another
passenger? And if you want to get up you have to move the IFE
screen as well. I seriously wonder what “suits” gave the approval
to this horrific design and if they have ever actually flown 15 1/2
hours strapped into a narrow box.
