Seat Map and Seating Chart Airbus A340-600 Qatar Airways
First 2 rows of seats are the seats of first class that have 1-2-1 configuration.
These seats are flat-bed seats with 180 degree recline.
Location of the lavatories in front may be bothersome for passengers of the seats of the 1st row.
Business class consists of 7 rows of seats per 6 in each.
So, there are totally 42 angle-flat seats her that have 165 degree recline.
All these seats are the same only proximity of the lavatory and galley may represent a problem for passengers of the seats of the 9th row.
It is the last row in the business class.
Economy class may transport 260 passengers.
The main disadvantage of A, D, G and K seats of the economy class is restricted under seat storage and legroom due to presence of entertainment equipment here.
The seats of the economy class are divided into two sections.
First section has 20 rows of seats that have 2-4-2 configuration.
The bulkhead position provides passengers of the seats of the 10th row with additional space for their legs.
Among disadvantages of these seats: noise from the galleys and lavatories located in front, reduced width of the seats as the tray tables are in the armrests making them immovable and lack of floor storage during take-off and landing.
For passengers with babies the seats 10DEFG offer bassinet locations.
The only disadvantage of the seats 18A and 18K are misaligned windows.
Other passengers tend to congregate in the area of the seats 28B, 28D, 28G, 28J and of the seats of the 29th row while waiting to use lavatories causing discomfort to passengers of these seats.
Limited recline is another disadvantage the seats of the 29th row.
Second section of economy class seats is located behind the exit row.
There are 13 rows of seats here with totally 96 seats.
Thanks to the exit row located in front passengers of the seats of the 30th row will feel comfortable as they provide extra legroom.
But these seats are narrower than standard, have no floor storage during take-off and landing and are located close to the lavatory and galley the noise from which may cause discomfort.
Passengers traveling with infants are often seats on the seats 31DEFG as they have bassinet locations.
As the seats 38D and 38G jut into the aisle they are often bumped by passengers and crew members passing by.
Because of the configuration change of the seats from 4 to 3 the seats 39DEF have limited space for passengers’ legs.
Passengers of AB and JK seats of the rows 39-41may feel neck strain while watching TV that are located on the backs of the seats located in front as these seats are misaligned.
Also due to curvature of the airplane these seats may feel narrower and cramped.
Location of the lavatories and galley behind will cause inconvenience to passengers of the seats of the 42nd row.
Also the seats of the last 42nd row may be less reclining than standard that is why these seats are considered bad seats.
