First Class has 16 recliner seats. Seats 3A and 3B may have less space for passengers’ legs dur to the bulkhead position. Close location to the lavatory may be bothersome.

Passengers of the seats 3E and 3F on the contrary may take advantage of extra legroom but at the same time proximity of the galley and lavatory may cause inconvenience.

30 seats of Main Cabin Extra are located in 2-3 configuration. The seats 7A, 7B, 7E and 7E have less space for passengers legs due to the bulkhead located in front.

Also these seats have reduced width as the armrests are immovable and there is no floor storage fot these seats during takeoff and landing.

The seat 7D has a little more legroom but crew members and other passengers tend to bump into this seat.

Economy class may transport 94 passengers. The seats 19A and 19F are considered bad seats as they do not recline due to the exit row located behind.

The seats 20A and 20F have limited recline due to the same reason – exit row behind.

The best seats in the airplane are the seats 20B, 20D and 20E and the seats of the 21st row. The main advantage for passengers of these seats is extra space for their legs. However, the seats of the 21st row have reduced width.

The seat 27A is a bad seat as there is no window here and close location to the galley may be inconvenient as well as for passenger of the seat 27B.

The seats of the 29th and 30th rows have the same disadvantage as proximity of the galley. The noise from the engines is another disadvantage.

Also the seats of these two rows have reduced space for hand luggage in overhead bins as crew equipment is stored here.

The seats of the last two rows of the airplane (31st and 32nd) ate the bad seats as they are located close to the galleys and the lavatories plus the view from these seats is bad as it is closed by the engines.
