Best Dragon Air J seats?

Did a quick search and came up empty. I'll be flying Dragon Air HKG-PEK-HKG in J next month. It looks like it will be a three-cabin 330 (8 a.m. outbound on a Tues. and either 8 a.m. or 10 a.m. return on a Sat.). I like window seats. Any recommendations re best or worst seats? Bulkheads the best?

Thanks for any advice.

They are pretty crammed to be honest, and do not offer fully reclining seats. Its not a long flight so basically grab any of the window seats as I dont recall any of them being better than the rest.

I agree!

Seat pitch on the A330s is in the 45' range according to their website. Not exactly leg-stretching stuff but ok. Just. For a flight of 2 hours I don't think you can go too much wrong.

Recline is also poor so no need to worry, wherever you sit, that someone is going to cramp your space

regards

lme etc etc

edited - there is one A330 configuration with biz seats at a 63' pitch (sleeper seats) - but this is on a two class configuration only. Who knows - you might get lucky with a substitution.

Thank you both for the info...even though (as you indicate) the seating doesn't seem to make much of a difference!
