    Flying with family (Mum, Dad and two kids 5/3) to Los Angeles on overnight flight, leisure travel. At check in, request for two additional seats was granted at no charge. Once on-board cabin is only half full, flight attendant also allocates three additional seats for us, giving us nine seats in total for the four of us. (Three sets of three seats.)

    On demand video keeps kids entertained until dinner, on completion of dinner kids take a row and sleep, mum and dad take other rows. Find that the arm rests on the two rows the parents chose only lift about 45 degrees so have to sleep with them in your side. A larger sized passenger behind us could not lie down on seats due to limited gap and when asked how to raise fully was told they do not. (Not sure of rationale for this.)

    Meals are standard airline fare, although generous. Kids got enough sleep that they were not grumpy on arrival in LAX while waiting for immigration.

    Overall, very good except for armrest issues.

    Hello Michael
    When you flew ANZ’s B777-200ER the Y seating configuration was, as you noted, 3-3-3. But note that Air NZ is in the process of reconfiguring the B777-200ERs’ cabins 3-4-3 to bring them in line with the same layout on its newer B777-300ERs.
