Business Class cabins have various seating structures for different occasions. Some passengers struggle to understand which cabin layout would be the most suitable exactly for their needs. SkyLux has prepared a guide describing 6 most common Business Class seat types to choose from. Read our guide and get acquainted with all of them.

Reverse Herringbone Business Class Seat

These seats are easily comparable with First Class suites and are called to be the best Business Class seats ever. Reverse Herringbone seats offer enhanced privacy and enough personal space. Moreover, there are no bad seats, thanks to a super-smart configuration. Every seat has direct aisle access and is private, unlike some other configuration, where you may end up seated in a “honeymoon” seat with a stranger. This type is the best one for single travelers wishing to get maximum privacy.

  • American — 777-300ER

Staggered Business Class Seats, Solstys Style 

This configuration offers so many different types of seating options to choose from — you have window seats that are right by the window with lots of privacy from the aisle, window seats that are closer to the aisle, private center seats, “honeymoon” seats in the center section, where you’re seated as close to your seatmate as possible. Such “honeymoon” layout is widely popular among couples traveling together. What is also good about this seating plan, is that the legroom is not restrictive.

Staggered Seats, Vantage Style Business Class Seat

These seats are not as private as above mentioned ones and offer way less legroom. That’s because of how the seats are designed — the foot “cubby” for each seat is located between the seats in front of them, so the space is quite limited.
