International First Class Seat Types
I am trying to get an idea as to the types of seats on International First Class Flights. It seems a if most are designed for the individual traveler. Rightfully so, but I will be traveling with my wife. Are there first class accommodations that are seated together which would allow for ease of conversation and interaction without being so separated in “Pod Like” areas. It looks like the top Airlines do not address this situation.
Off the top of my head, I think EK, SQ KE and EY F both make it relatively easy to communicate with a companion, provided you both reserve a pair of center seats. For EY F on the A380, each apartment is very private but you can comfortably sit 2 people in the apartment when you want to converse.
Do you already have a particular itinerary in mind? If you do and can share it, it’d be easier to find out what F products are available. Furthermore, Lucky’s trip reports always include ample photos where you can see cabin layouts.
Airlines with jump seats/ottomans are one of the best things this includes AA, QF, CX, etc. The other good type is seats that can be made into 1 seat like on EY (apartments) and SQ (suites). Of course if you really want to be together you could always book the residence on EY. The other type that is good for people traveling together is the “swivel seats” you get on AA.
