Is the width just mis-lableled or were people really considering 33 inches inadequate? I'm 6'2 225 and generally uncomfortable in Economy and even Economy plus type seats, so found these statements a bit concerning.
When in an upright position, the seat has armrests that come up and they do make the seat feel a lot narrower than it looks. You can see the armrest position in some of the pictures from jmj10's post above. I wouldn't be surprised if the 33" figure includes the armrests or was measured when the seat was in bed mode. That said, I wouldn't call it constraining or uncomfortable - perhaps just annoying.

I have flown in the NH F seats on the 777-300 many times. I have found NOTHING annoying about the seats or service. And I'm not a little guy....

It's annoying in the sense that at times I do wish the armrests could be manually adjusted, and I expounded on this as I do believe the criticisms mentioned by arjaok to be understandable.

I'm glad you have found nothing to be annoyed with, although what your size has to do with service, I'm not so sure...

Gee, size obviously refers to seat comfort.
