Business Class Seat Guide

Every airline that flies long-haul regards its business class seats as its premium offering. Some of these airlines have first class, but this is increasingly rare, and business class is where the real money is made, not least because there are many more business class seats on the aircraft.

There are several different styles of business class seating, but once airlines had decided that passengers were demanding seats which reclined into fully-flat beds, the majority of manufacturers went to one of the major seat manufacturers and adapted their off-the-shelf products rather than designing a seat from scratch.

What that means is you will find versions of the same seat on many airlines. Some make major changes, some make minor ones, and of course the exact specifications change not only from one airline to another, but also from one aircraft type to another. In addition, some airlines will have one type of seat on one aircraft type, and a completely different type on another.
