I'm not even that comfortable in AirNZ's 777 premium economy. Obviously it's significantly better than economy, but if you have long legs you end up with very limited room for your feet. Of course if you do have long legs you probably have large feet.



On what plane? I love the Spaceseat on the 77W but it's a highly polarising product with basically 50% of people loving it and 50% hating it.


I haven't flown PE on the 77R refit (I've only flown on it pre refit) or 789 yet as I've always skipped past PE. I do have a flight to HKG in PE on the 77R next month to try it out.




I have similar long leg issues with the Spaceseat on the 777. Flew to LA recently and whilst it was way better than economy I had to sleep at an interesting angle.


The bulkhead PE seats on the 77R and 787 are also problematic, but the rest of the PE 77R and 787 seats are awesome.

The trip over on the 787-9 from AKL to HNL didn't start well - the secondary weather radar broke down and repairs took a few hours, but once we were in the air this aircraft was noticeably much quieter than other members of the AirNZ fleet. Even in economy we noticed what a difference the humidity and air pressure made. The IFE is also a major improvement over those deployed in the rest of the fleet.


Because of the delay at AKL we hit a busy period at HNL, with an immigration wait time of around 1.5 hours, but customs waived us through.
