I am flying Cathay Pacific from JFK to HKG on their Airbus A 340-600. I would like some feedback on their economy class seats on that flight . I also understand they have a nose camera that is turned on during take off and landing. Is that true?

Turning on/off the nose camera is entirely up to the captain, and as I understand it's certainly not 100% chance that it'll be on. On a recent flight the captain only turned it on for us for the landing into HKG, and that was on a 777. Do the 346s also have the cameras?
The seats are fair enough, and the IFE is quite decent -- better than anything else on that route anyway, especially compared with CO. Look out the window when you're over Siberia, it can be quite fun.
