Dragonair's A330-300 fleet has slightly different business class seating depending on the configuration of the aircraft. What makes this difficult for the traveller is frequent aircraft changes. On the Airbus A330 fleet the business class cabin is in a 2-2-2 configuration (A,B - D,G - H,K) and here, there are 42 seats in a single section.
Seats on this particular aircraft are designed by Recaro and have an adjustable headrest, legrest and foot rest.
The intuitively designed control panel has three preset positions (takeoff, comfort and relax) plus a four-way lumbar support and massage function. There is also an integrated book holder and personal reading light, a cocktail tray in the centre console, in-seat stowage pocket and coat hook.
Seat statistics: Pitch: 45", width: 21", recline: 9.5" or 135°.
Each seat features a 9" personal video screen.
Choice of 10 PTV video and 16 audio channels from the Dragon On Air inflight entertainment programming.
In-seat Power Outlet
* Airbus KID 110V AC SkyPower in-seat power outlet for laptop computer and portable electronic devices in every seat (requires no adapter cable).
Food is served on china from the Lifestyle collection from Wedgwood.
Wine and champagne are served in exclusively designed glassware. (Champagne is available on selected flights only)
Tables are covered in fine linen woven in aqua blue.
There is a trolley service, with a choice of two to three main courses and the menu is changed every 15 days.
"Unless being asked again to choose between a middle seat towards the front of the cabin and the final row, I would never again go for the latter. There are several good reasons: the queues that form for the washrooms behind you; the sound of the flushing WCs after ablutions; and the slamming of doors after use. And just because the galley is at your back as well doesn’t mean you’re going to get fed first – the attendants start serving several rows ahead of you and work their way back.
"From where I and my two companions sat, we had to crane our necks to catch anything that was being shown on the mini monitor that comes down from a recess in the ceiling during the flight and goes up again before the descent. It may be better to sit on the aisle seats in rows 48 to 50 on either side if you really wanted to view what was playing."
