I nonreved on an etops 757 from JFK
back in July in BusinessElite and thought it was great. There is about 5 inches less of legroom as compared to the 777/767 aircraft. Plus, the seat doesn't recline the full 160 degrees like on the 777/67. I believe its 150 degrees. Still plenty cozy to take a good nap in, as i did on the 6 hour flight back to JFK
. The seat felt about as wide as a 767 BE
seat, perhaps a little wider in fact.
Each seat has an individual 7-inch monitor with on-demand TV
, music, video programming and of course USB and PC
Power Ports. Each seat also has ergonomic lumbar support, which the 777/67 do not. To be honest, though, i found it to be rather annoying. Felt like somebody kneeing me in the back as i was watching the movie.
And while this is totally subjective, i found the food choices to be much better flying to Europe than when i flew to NRT
. I'm not exactly an adventurous eater when it comes to my food selections, which is perhaps why i enjoy food on the European flights so much more than the flights to/from Asia.
All in all, i was pleasantly surprised with the comfort and features of the 757 BusinessElite seats. Overall i think they're good for what their role is, shorter Western European flights to/from the U.S. East Coast.
