Booked to fly in Y with my family on the new MEL-LAX service. Does anyone know if any of the seats in this cabin are affected by the presence of an inflight entertainment control box underneath the seat in front of you, thereby compromising leg-room?

I have flown VA on this aircraft before but can't remember about the box but I will say this Y class seat is one of the most spacious in the world. Almost as good as JAL 777-300ER. I was in the aisle seat both times if that helps.

no the modern IFE doenst tend to have these boxs as the initial ones did. or where they are they dont take up as much of the legroom that they previously did. have a look at seatguru but i havent seen any when i have been in Y. if you are worried about legroom try the space plus sections or PY.

They do have a small IFE box under every second seat, but nothing too limiting. you can actually rest your foot on top of the edge for a different position - which after 13 hours is welcomed :)
