I just flew on the plane. I just arrived on NOV 9th NRT
with the new WBC. Seats are very nice although the same complaint that I have with all of the new lie flat beds is they are not too comfortable for tall people b/c they don't support my knees very well and my legs ache horribly after several hours. I have the same problem with CO
incidentally. I actually prefer the older seats.
Anyway while the seats are good I also got to sample the food service. I wouldn't exactly call it an improvement. They really need to fly CO
to see how food should be served. A al carte just seems way more professional.
The AVOD was also disappointing. Buggy (which is to expected I guess) kind of cheap plastic for the controls. The movie selection was crap but that's NW
's problem not the system.
Overall it was a slight improvement but not a drastic difference I was expecting. I would rate the seat better than BF
, but the overall service, even on an Asian sector, has not improved much at all. When you are paying multi-thousands of dollars for J class, you want to feel just a little bit special. The seats aren't going to just do it.
I do have to say that the silver planes are awesome looking. We had to use the airstairs in BKK
and it looks really sleek, especially next to a tired UA
