View Full Version : BA 787-800 premium economy

8th Jan 2018, 18:03
Just prebooked seats YYC/LHR on the 787-8 and paid to preselect seats but only row 13 are available.
Seat guru is I know is often wrong but does anyone know if 13A&B do have limited recline as they suggest please?

Yes, I’m afraid it does look like it.
I have the seat plan here but can’t post it. Ask me another one.

Thanks Eckhard

I have seen the seating plan, just wondered if anyone in real life had an idea how bad the restricted recline is. It may be just an inch less, no worries, or virtually no recline at all which is an issue!:{

I don’t know for sure but I doubt that in premium economy any seat would be non reclining.

Thanks businessair75

According to flyertalk there is no recline problem with these seats and seatguru say there is....guess I will find out soon either way!!:ok:

I just read through the user comments on the SeatGuru page. You might want to as well. Although nothing specific for row 13 and recline. Recently I flew a TUI B788 LGW-HKT-LGW in Y and found it comfortable, nothing like the comments suggest for BA. They may not be the same seats, although both are 3/3/3.

Different seat pitch if I recall correctly...

BA premium economy has an advertised seat pitch of 28".... surely they could not offer any less?

Sorry thread drift confusion, thought you were suggesting row 13 had a different seat pitch to the rest of the premium cabin, guessing you mean BA is different to TUI economy!!

They advertise 38"

And that's what's shown for WT Plus in the SeatGuru link in my previous post.

Sorry I meant 38"!

I repeat, I have seen seatguru and read all the feedback and read all the comments on flyertalk but neither answers the question, just wondered if anyone knew the real rather than speculative answer.

Thanks for all the comments.:)
