Waiting for you on your seat when you board will be your amenity kit, a pillow, blanket, and your noise-canceling headphones.

There is a small, fixed tray-table in between all the seats and the main tray-table can be accessed via a flap in the armrest.

Seat controls and headphone ports can be found just under the fixed tray-table between the seats.

The Inflight Entertainment (IFE) remote and power can also be found on the front of the armrests between the fixed tray-table and the floor.

While Jetstar calls it business class, it’s what a full-service airline would call premium economy.

Nevertheless, it’s a large, comfortable seat and there’s plenty of legroom.

The amenity kit is a cotton tote bag with wet wipes, hand cream, lip balm, toothbrush and paste, eye mask, ear plugs, socks, pen and an inflatable neck pillow.

A blanket and pillow is also provided.

For a low cost carrier, Jetstar’s 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft has some great features on economy class.

Modern, sleek, black leather seats also features adjustable headrest with additional padding for extra comfort.

Legroom is standard at 30 inch but decreases as the seat reclines so you will need to tweak the seat position to suit your needs. 

Windows feature the revolutionary “window dimming’ function instead of window shades which is exclusive to the Boeing 787.

For take off and landing the Cabin Crew will set all windows to bright in line with policy.

All seats feature USB charging points for your personal electronic devices.

An 18 inch TV screen is located in the seat back of all economy seats.

Jetstar’s in flight entertainment system features a selection of the latest blockbusters, reality TV shows, games, something for the kids and information about your flight.

Economy class may transport 314 passengers.

These sections are located in three sections.

First section offers 27 seats. As the tray tables of the seats of the 10th row are located in the armrests, these seats are a little narrower than standard.

Also these seats have no floor storage during take-off and landing.

Limited recline and close location of the lavatory and galley are the disadvantages of the seats 11GHJ, 12DEF and 13ABC.

Missing window make the seats 13ABC bad seats.

Behind the exit row the second section of economy class seats is located.

For passengers travelling with infants the seats 23DEF offer bassinet locations.

The main disadvantages of the seats 41DEF, 42ABC and 42GHJ are: limited recline and location of the lavatories behind.

The third section of economy class seats consists of 14 rows.

Passengers of the seats of the 44th row will take advantage of extra legroom.

However, congregation of passengers in front of these seats while waiting to use lavatories will cause discomfort to passengers of these seats.

Among other disadvantages: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and reduced width of the seats.

Missing windows make the seats 51A and 51J bad seats.

The windows of the seats 52A and 52J are misaligned.

For passengers travelling with a partner are ideal the seats 54AC, 54GH and 55AC, 55GH.

Due to curvature of the airplane the seats 54AC and 54GH may feel cramped.

Limited recline makes the seats 55AC and 55GH bad seats.

The seats of the last 57th row are considered bad seats due to location of the lavatories behind and limited recline.
