Cathay Pacific was a pioneer in the development of Business Class seats, making Cathay Pacific’s Business Class herringbone seats the most comfortable in the skies. There are very few bad seats on the B77-300ER, but in this article, I outline the best business class seats for this Cathay Pacific B777-300ER.
The Cathay Pacific cabin layout and seat concept are so successful that it has been copied by other airlines, such as American Airlines, EVA Air, and more recently Air France. Qatar Airways also uses a variant on its Boeing 787s and Airbus A380/350s.
Each seat comes with plenty of storage space for all your personal items. A side cabinet houses a headset and a vanity mirror with enough room for a smartphone, pen, passport, and other bits and pieces. Next to the seat, at eye level, are the seat and entertainment controls, reading light, and power port. Seats have a universal power supply outlet and a multi-port connector with an RCA port, an iPhone/iPod connector, and a USB port. The RCA and the iPhone/iPod connector allows you to connect to your own devices and watch a video through the TV screen. The seats feature a large tray table in addition to a work surface so you can eat and work at the same time. There’s a large footrest in front of every seat.
You can recline the seat into a very comfortable, fully flat-bed. The flat-bed is just over 2 meters (82 inches) long. A bed extension increases its width by 16.5 cm (6.5 inches) to provide additional hip support, while the side storage compartment offers extra knee space for sleeping on your side. For sleeping, you may choose to leave your armrest up for more privacy or down for more space.
In my opinion, the best business class seats on Cathay Pacific’s B777-300ER are the seats in row 11 and 12 because they are located in their own little secluded cabin and are therefore a good choice. If you are traveling alone, you should choose window seats.
What are the worst Business Class seats on Cathay Pacific’s B777-300ER?
The window seats in row 15, 21, and 24 are missing a window or have a misaligned window and are therefore the worst Business Class seats on Cathay Pacific’s B777-300ER. The last row of Business Class, row 26, is close to Premium Economy bassinet seats, so also not a great choice.
