This aircraft features 12 First Class open suites, 54 Business Class flat seats, 66 Premium Economy seats, and 292 standard Economy Class seats.

There are a total of 12 first class seats across 3 rows in a 1-2-1 configuration.

Each open suite seat measures up at 26.5 inches wide and 83 inches in pitch.

These large first class seats are fully lie-flat and have direct aisle access.

Ordinarily, the first class cabin on the 747 is located in the nose.

But the 747-8i has a rather peculiar positioning of the first class cabin.

The cabin on the 747-8i is located on the lower deck, behind the business class cabin, but in front of the premium economy cabin.

The Boeing 747-8i contains 54 business class seats split up into 2 cabins on the upper and lower decks of the plane.

Each of these seats is identical in size to the business class seats on the 787-9: 21 inches wide and 60 inches in pitch.

There are a total of 66 premium economy seats in a 3-4-3 configuration on Air China Boeing 747-8i.

Each seat is 18.3-19.3 inches wide and 36-38 inches in pitch.

This means that the premium economy seat is up to 1 inch narrower than the same seat on the 787-9, which is not ideal.

The Air China 747-8i has 233 economy seats, each of which are 18 inches wide and 31-33 inches in pitch.

The best seats are located in row 48 because of the extra legroom that you’ll experience.
