Very true. And in my humble experience they are pretty crap too.

This as maybe but they are just too damn loud! I frequently get off a 77W to connect onto a 380 and the difference is staggering. 10 abreast seating in a 777 is just plain wrong.

I try and avoid 777's on any carrier (getting difficult) if possible but the 772 of AF and 77W of both AF and KL are horrible down the back.

At least EK give you more legroom when squeezing in 10...

Are the EK 777 Y seats wide enough for a 12in screen I think is the more pertinent point! ;)

How about spending the cash making em 9 across and then I will consider flying on em!

Because its nice to see some praise when in reality, they did more than they HAD to. They could have told the OP to wait, but didn't. Seems reasonable to me.

Why would you not just listen to it on your ipod? Video I could understand but music seems a bit pointless.

Not convinced on your first point. Certainly from my home base as I have to connect in AMS, FRA or CDG, the flights that LH and AF run 747's on are are generally the cheapest on the market. KL's...

Having been on TP A340's in Y, I can safely say I would rather detour through DXB or JNB in Y (already do that in J) on SAA, KL or EK than go through that again. Worst Y flight ever? Possibly.

In my experience, AF were OK with hotels and compensation in general. It almost made up for the fact their staff's 5 day strike had me stranded in PAris in the first place! Its been a few years but...

From what I remember it was going to be a 757 or something in a business config. Also pretty sure that it had to stop somewhere to refuel on at least the way over as well.

Maybe the Azal flight is getting busier. Every time I have boarded a flight around the same time it has looked pretty empty. They have competition from LH now as well of course.
