FYI, especially in long haul, airlines try their darnedest to eliminate all reduced recline. Last row seats can sometimes be the better. Less crowded in the back of the plane, no 5 year old behind you constantly beating on the screen on your seatback, and in some airplanes, the last row may be one of the only double seats instead of a triple or quad.
Honestly, I'm more stunned that there is a limikted incline seat on the B789 (or maybe just QF's version for this route). That is unconsciable for a 18 hour flight. God have mercy on their souls.
I was in the back row on the inaugural and I assure you I had full recline. This is Qantas, not Spirit.
I had 59A on the inaugural QF10 and same seat back again about a week later. I found it ok. SIN is about 14 hours anyway so once you've gone that far you might as well push on a few more hours.
Personally I think I'll stick with the QF2 next time. I prefer the A380 and the departure time from LHR suits me better. Having said that the late night arrival on the QF10 is better than a 5am one in SYD on the 2.
But I found the service exceptional as normal so I was fine with it. Nice long night coming back from Perth. At the end of the day economy seats will not have the space of C or CY so you pay your money and what you can afford and take your choice.
Following my trip on this inaugural flight Ive seemed to of have got myself on an advisory panel at QF. I get regular things to comment on and complete. The Operation Sunrise could be a game changer if some of the ideas they've asked for comments on come off. That's not to say any of them will but some radical ideas being thought about. Economy wise that is. Time and economics will tell...
