Qantas will charge you for an extra legroom seat. But this seat has anything but that. Possible less legroom than a normal economy seat. The emergency slide takes up almost all the space directly in-front of you stopping you from extending your legs...the whole point of an extra legroom seat. I would highly recommend against selecting this seat. Though, if you like to put your feet up and you are shorter than average, this maybe the perfect seat for you.
This was an excellent seat with unlimited legroom, meaning I could get out without disturbing the neighbouring passenger. There was no bassinet here.
5E is the worse seat ever. No storage space for handbag. Have to climb over sleeping neighbours to access aisle.
The seat has quite a bit of space. Surprised that this seat is not marked as 'green'. This version of plane is currently used for SYD-JNB. 5B is also okay - but you may be closer to the entry door for boarding/disembarking. Not sure which plane it was, but the power socket was very worn and wouldn't keep my two prong power plug in. It didn't work for QF63 and QF64 (flew two weeks apart for return). Bit of a bummer to have my devices run out of juice.
The seat was ok. full lie-flat. The crew add a mattress to it. The only trouble is that 747's are now pretty old, & the business class is looking a little tired. The seat wobbles when people walk by, & 747 noise is higher than say A380s. Crew were quite good. As this & QF26 are late-ish flights, the food & drink quantities aren't too abundant. We also had the middle seat coming back, which is OK. The barriers between seats could go higher though!
Bloody old air craft that should have been retired decades ago, extremely noisy, extremely rough ride. Bad seating arrangements and uncomfortable seats, not to mention ugly looking
70K and 70A are both good choices in economy. They're a row behind where the fuselage starts to taper and as a result there's a decent amount of extra legroom to the right (70K) or to the left(70A). This is particularly good on some of the longer flights this aircraft operates on.
Scored this premium business seat thanks to a friendly QF business associate. As others have stated, for single travellers the best seats (5B and 5J) in business class. No-one next to you, a storage locker, and all the advantages of a business pod seat. The only slight detraction is limited views outside due to the distance from the window, but an adequate view of the scenery is still possible.
Good seat - room for storage next to you, lots of space to go to bathroom, etc. If you have bigger carry on bags, you obviously have to put it up top.
I used SeatGuru to choose this seat for my flight from Brisbane to LA, and it was exactly as advertised. If you are a solo traveler, this is the seat for you. I really appreciated the privacy, extra storage space, and the fact that I didn't have to climb over anyone or be climbed over for aisle access. Yes, the plane is showing its age, but the crew did their best to ensure comfort. The bedding was above average compared to what I have experienced on other airlines, and the food and service were excellent.
LAX-BNE very old and tired plane , visible dust on air vents, when seats reclined the tray tables fell down, arm rest on 53A broken resulting in crackling intermittent audio. Seats stuck in recline position Cramped hot flight with little service. I understand qantas are retiring the 747's soon but they should stll maintain thrm properly in the interim.
I chose 16K as the legroom is superb, there are no seats on the other side s0 it feels very private, toilets are at the front so disturbance is minimal. Window count is superb there are 4 well placed windows just for this seat. Recommended.
Easy to get up to bathroom with nobody blocking the front. Not as much leg room because of the plane door coming out in front of legs but great to lean to the window to sleep just needed some extra head cushioning. Ive booked this seat again this year
Paid a small premium for window and middle seat in row 60. Bulkhead. The seating chart indicates additional leg room however there was LESS leg room than a normal economy seat. Felt very claustrophobic. Enough room to stand with back against the bulkhead wall (i am 5'5"). Would not choose again, let alone pay extra for!
Seat locates on the Upper Deck, which made you feel like you were travelling in a business only aircraft. Seat very comfortable, and 4 windows to enjoy the view. 14A directly in front on benefits from 1 window.
Comfortable seat in the forat cabin of thw lower deck, cabin is small, and due to location you only have a maximum of 8 people walking past due to its location. Unlike the second cabin that see much more foot traffic due to bathroom & galley.
Great front view perspective as it looks like you are facing front wards due to the curve of the nose cone. Unfortunately the area noisy at take off and landing. Crew access the storage zone and i notice people travelling with Children get put there due to the basinett position. Sometimes babies are super quiet but sometimes not :)
Quieter cabin upstairs with additional space to store about 2 to 3 small cabin bags. No need to use overhead bins. Much easier to get to than having to get up. No one is behind you, just a jump seat so you can take a little more of the side storage than say 10K could. Sometimes a queue to use the bathroom as only one on the upper deck but a quick stroll downstairs has you at 2 rear bathrooms. Seat is great. Massage option is good on 12+ hour trips across the pacific.
Beware to Bulkhead .... Legroom is a strange term, as far as airlines go, it only seems to include your upper leg (thigh) -being bestowed with rather long legs, I am not quite sure what to do with my whole leg(s), as there is no space to fold under seats in front (as the bulkhead blocks all that). Yes, great pitch, but maybe only really comfortable for a short person. NOT quite good enough for Premium Economy. (Let alone the bumbling FAs and rather dated aircrafts Qantas is using). Review for QF128 V2,
46An isn't a great seat, although you are in an exit row the door protrudes into your leg area and you really only have space to stretch one leg out. All the passengers that line up for the toilet stand around and trip on your feet while they wait for the toilets (you'll have trouble sleeping there). I wouldn't sit in any of the A, B or C seats (probably the same for the other side as well)
