What cabin? I flew Premium in a 787-9 with them back in November from JFK - LGW. They were brilliant, seats were more than comfortable, food was great, the attendants looked a little tired but that was probably because it was a 23:30 departure and was running 45 minutes late. I also had a look at the economy and if I’m honest, I wouldn’t have been displeased to sit there - it looked more than adequate. Liked the fact that you could pay for things (duty free etc) without having to get a crew member, just swipe your card on the IFE. Also felt less tired, something which is attributed to the 787 because of it’s preset cabin pressure altitude. Overall a great journey, wouldn’t hesistate to fly with them again. :)

P.S. As for being on time - as I said it left 45 minutes late, but arrived bang on time, with a flight time of about 6 hours 5 minutes.

I’m in EconomyPlus. Nice to hear your thoughts! I’m looking forward to my flight as it’ll be my first time flying long haul. Do they have WiFi?

Is that an extra legroom seat? Or do you mean LowFare+? Unfortunately they only have the WiFi on the Boeing 737 fleet, but the IFE was far superior to any other airline I’ve been on, so it should be enough to occupy somebody for 10+ hours.

I think it’s extra legroom. And ah that sucks but it’ll be fun to play around with the IFE.

Try Dantorp aviation, I watched his video on the premium class cabin and I was truly surprised but he could have one for economy plus.

Have fun being pinched by 9-abreast seats on the 11 hour flight from LGW-LAX! I hear that it’s a complete nightmare to fly on a 9-abreast 787, even on QR…
