The rear Economy Class cabin of our CX 747-400 after completion of flight CX 684 from BOM. I found these fixed-back new generation seats uncomfortable. The fact that the flight was jam packed did not help either! The IFE screens are displaying the gate information for connecting flights from HKG.

I found the leg room increases when sitting on these seats in the contrary.

The leg room seems fine but your knees touch the back of the seat in front as the seat bottom slides forward. Nice shot though!

Great photo. On first instance, it looks like the Microsoft Blue Screen of death!

The shot is great however I do not agree with the comment stated that the new generation of Long Haul Economy Class seats are uncomfortable. As a matter of fact, I found it very comfortable!!!!

Love the 747 spacious cabin !! Gotta admit with Vivek . The seats are uncomfortable to the point i no longer choose CX for flying long haul. im 6" and the seats make u slide into the seat back in front.

Ah- memories of actually HAVING leg space in comparison to the A330-300.

Even for a small guy like me, I found the new generation seats uncomfortable. But loved flying on B-HUD.

Just flew this on Mar 11, 2011. The picture is great as this is exactly what it was. However, once you 'incline' via sliding, the seats were the uncomfortable. Your knees do come up against the front seat. If you're not over 1.7 or have long legs, I wouldn't recommend this. I'm going to avoid this CX flight in the future.
