Question About Business Class In NWA Airbus A330

Wed Dec 21, 2005 6:48 am

Do the business class seats on NWA 330-300's recline fully ?
I have never flown A330-300's on an international flight and have been told that they have very comfortable seats in business class.

No, they don't. AFAIK, the WBC product on NW is the same as on KL, though I've never flown on the former.

BTW, NW operates both A332s and A333s

They are not bad, but don't quite recline enough. I found myself waking up with my lower legs hurting. Seems the slope is enough, that I would slide down to the foot rest and a lot of my weight would be on my feet.
Other than that, I love the massage feature and the bigger video screen than economy.
The NW 744's in Asia have the same seats in WBC,

No they don't fully recline. but 176 degrees versus 180 degrees really doesn't matter. Its close enough. They may not be the most comfortable seats on the planet but they are better than regular business class and they beat the pants off of coach.
