Hi guys I'm travelling from London to New York with KU in Business Class and am wondering if anyone knows where I can see what the seats and product looks like. I know its a very very old style of seat, but for the price I paid, I'm more than happy

Thanks in advance

Don't keep your hopes up, I'll tell you that much. If your equipment is the 343, chances are nothing will work- seat recline, footrests, IFE. If it's the B777, it'll be less dated, that's all.

Carry your iPod or a book to keep yourself occupied.

Towards the end of this video, you can make out the J seat. (It's on the 772).

like you said I don't plan to keep my hopes up, however its such a good price as it was only 745 compared to 2000 for VS and BA. Plus its only a 7 hour flight so shouldn't be bad. By what I see, it looks like its the 777 that flies the Heathrow - New York sector.

Yep, KU is probably the cheapest on the sector. It's a pity AI stopped flying this route, or you could have tried AI's J on the 777, which is way better than KU's. I believe AI used to be one of the cheaper ones on this sector too.

How about AA?

Here's a KU TR I posted a few days ago, if you're interested. Though it's in Y. Just want to warn you how abysmal the service levels can get.

Most definitely. I've flown on AI's 777 before and love the Business Class. Also I flew on AI's B744 from LHR to JFK back in 2006 and then it was around 990 which was very cheap. I'm glad to get a cheap price so it should be quite interesting!

Go ahead and post a TR. There are hardly any KU TRs around, it will be fun to read. Wink

You're not the first person to say that and don't worry as I plan to when I get back. If I get too bored on board, then my TR will be finished by the time I land! LOL!
