Mainly posting this as a report on Upper Class in the re-fitted A330-200 aircraft. The meals/cabin crew etc. were all up to usual standards without issue, albeit most of the crew had never flown/worked this re-fitted 330 before.
This is a Trip Report from the Upper Class cabin
Food & Drink
Our flight back was @ 19:25 and after an enjoyable couple of hours in the lounge we headed down 1 hour before departure for boarding and onto the aircraft.
First visual impressions were favourable, the UC cabin looked fresh and the seats looked promising, alas it wasn't quite the same once in them.
If you are flying one of these configurations all I can say is avoid ALL of the seats which are to the aisle, either take the inner 'paired' seats with a friend or one of the 'inside' window seats.
The right hand armrest on my seat 4C (And all other aisle side seats) facing the aisle is incredibly narrow on the aisle side and you are inevitably sat with an arm in the aisle and all the joy of being bumped and pushed as everyone moves up and down the cabin. Add it this the fact that the seats have no lower foot/calf rest so you are left with the option of placing your feet onto the footstool and then your left leg/knee is invariably leaning awkwardly against the bottom of the table support, a hard lump of aluminium. Not comfortable.
The seats seem to have a fair range of adjustment albeit the lumbar on mine did nothing whatsoever so you can find a reasonable recline or upright position but the narrow footstool means as a bed there's every likelihood of your feet ending up in the aisle itself with all the fun that can then bring. It should be noted though that unless the seat is very upright you can't place your feet on the floor and that can be a little uncomfortable (I am 5'11" so was surprised to end up swinging my legs like a toddler at times) this compounds the issue noted above where you almost have to put up your feet on the stool and bang into the table support.
Storage and cubby holes abound so no complaints there, with power and USB readily available under the armrest and also to the left at floor level. The entertainment screens are fixed and are very large and clear, controlled by touch or by the armrest controller which pops out. The controller itself is very small and can be awkward to see the rear buttons in low light as they are not highlighted, the front lights up though and is simple enough to operate with the little square touch sensitive track pad and click operation.
The table hinges down and swings into position and is a very good size, you can swing it forward somewhat and effect exit of your seat while it's down so long as you breath in a bit! It's a shame it is too large to actually just pivot down from the stowed position and allow you to have a side table but that's not really a problem as the side storage are is quite big in itself.
If anybody has any specific questions please ask/post I'll try and help, I've included a number of photos so you can get an idea of the layout/seat hopefully but above all if flying this aircraft AVOID those aisle facing seats! Others in my family had the window side seats and in those you have improved arm/shoulder space and foot space for sleeping without fear of being knocked every time somebody passes by.
Fire away with any questions!
