Hi Lucky, I have a rather odd question to ask – I’m going on an 13hr flight soon from Asia to London on CX PE which is paid by my company. I couldn’t secure any upgrade as I didn’t have enough miles and my company policy only allows traveling long haul by PE. The issue is recently I’ve been diagnosed with scoliosis and its affecting my ability to sit on certain chairs. I recently had a short haul flight on CX Y and the pain nearly killed me. I’m just getting nervous if my back decides to hate the PE chair and what options would I have in-flight. If the pain gets unbearable, would it be embarassing to ask the flight attendants whether there are any spare J seats just to lie down and rest?
@ Grace — To be honest if you absolutely need to have a more comfortable surface I’d make sure you confirm business class now. Your company should be understanding of your health situation, in my opinion, and there’s a good chance they won’t have spare seats and/or wouldn’t be able to upgrade you. I wouldn’t rely on the generosity of FAs if the pain nearly killed you on a shorthaul flight, let alone a much longer one.
