Jon Carroll flies business class,and generally likes it.
My chair was wide, plush and had fold-out leg rests, plus literally more legroom than I needed - I could not touch the back of the seat in front of me with the soles of my feet even if I slouched. On one armrest was a full panel of buttons, some of them of uncertain purpose. There were three tabs on the other armrest, a lever under my right knee and another lever by my right ear. Also a goosenecked reading lamp.
On the other hand.....
I spent about the third of my luxury flight wrestling with my chair. The chair won.
