In a compartment under the left armrest you will find the seats controls.

Under the right armrest, you will find your IFE remote.

There’s two power ports and a USB port on the right arm of the seat and plenty of storage via two compartments along the window as well as a large ottoman that opens up to store all your essential person items.

There are two rows of first class on the A340-600 and then two separate business class cabins on either side of the galley.

The first cabin is the larger of the two, beginning at row three through to row eight in a 2-2-2 (A-C, D-G, H-K) configuration, with the second cabin having four rows (see seat plan, right).

The in-flight entertainment was limited compared with best-in-class choices such as Emirates or Cathay Pacific, but was AVOD (audio-video on-demand).
