If you're talking about the A380 product, I've flown it on two day flights (QF32, QF51). It's a very good economy seat, but it's still an economy seat. You will be as comfortable as can be in economy, but you're still in economy.

Overall, it's a nice enough improvement over the older seat seen on the A330-300 and the B747-400 without the latest refurbishment, but it's hardly a breakthrough.

The best thing about it is the width; they seem to have made it nice and wide by robbing space from the aisles, but that's okay, I spend more time in my seat than the aisles.

In these days where the competition is largely flying ten-abreast 777s with narrow aisles *and* narrow seats, an extra inch or so of shoulder room is a nice boon.

But yeah, it's still economy, and nothing about the economics of packing squishy people into aluminium tubes has changed, so don't get too excited.

Viscount,

You've got to take Qantas marketing and PR with a good pinch of salt. It is their job scope to talk things up and they are clearly very good at it.
