First class seats have 38 inches pitch and 20.5 inches width.
These seats are located in the first 5 rows and have 2-2 configuration.
Because of the bulkhead located in front the legroom of the seats of the 1st row is limited but due to the fact that that there are no seats in front passengers of these seats will take advantage of extra personal space.
Among some other disadvantages: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing and noise from lavatory and galley area located in front.
