Definitely a bit more subdued... lets hope these stay in a better condition than the orange ones. When I flew with Aeroflot last year, the seat covers were starting to look very tatty and falling to bits considering the young age of the aircraft!

Leather seats last a lot longer than fabric covered seats do. That's one reason why they have become so popular in recent years. They may be more expensive to purchase, but last long enough to recoup the money spent to acquire them.
I find some leather seats to be rather slippery. Once you seem to have found the perfect seated position, you slide down out of the seat.

They should get kudos for retaining their ear pillows. I never understand why some carriers have chosen not to have them; if you're in coach, it's a very nice thing to have so you don't have to deal with a pillow that slides around everywhere, especially on leather seats. Regardless, I like both the orange seats and the blue seats with orange outlines; you'd never see that on a US carrier.

Love their infamous orange seats.
Never liked the leather seats, they are slippery and tacky.
They give me the cheap feeling, eventhough they are more expensive in reality.
Maybe because many low-cost carriers opt to use the leather seats.
I also hate the feeling when my arse touch those slippery leather.
