Go for it, though it will be cramped if you are a little "larger" around the butt or waist
Not so much the pitch, but the width of the seats in the 9 abreast 332 and the 310.
We have used them YVR
a few times now, of course I would prefer to fly upstairs with BA
, but the savings are too huge to ignore.
This is a 10 hour flight of course which is longer than yours, but we got two meals included in the fare, no BOB. Soft drinks are complimentary as is a glass of wine with your dinner (you have to pay for other alcohol) and they frequently come round the cabin with water (more than AC
...) and they have little extras like candies and towels which you would not really expect for the fare paid. The cabin service is on a par with AC
and the food is no worse. In fact, I find the cabin crew a lot friendlier than AC
Bag allowance is 20 kgs which we have never exceeded and you get 10 kgs of cabin luggage too (only thing is good luck stowing it if you are one of the last to board).
Punctuallity is generally pretty good, though you do have to watch out for schedule changes and additional stops en route, though FCO
you will probably be OK
. My last LGW
, they brought the flight forward 3 hours and stopped in MAN
, so I had to get to the airport at 6am rather than a leisurely 9am which I booked it for and then arrived later... my only gripe with them though.
The fleet is slowly being updated with PTV's and AVOD, the selection is not great, but more than enough to keep you entertained for the required time. Not been on the new refurb yet, but it looks pretty good considering the price you are paying.
