Hey everyone

Have a trip at the end of the month with a request from Y+ to J. NB so I know the chances are remote.

Anyway getting excited and all and reading every post and article I can.

I came across the skybed mk2 droop issue this morning. Many posts about it and suggestions that a rollaboard will help remedy the situation a little. Although just as all seats aren't equal all rollaboards are not made equal.
How high off the ground us it? I can't find a post that says or recommends a rollaboard size.
I have a 55cm high by 31cm wide by 21cm deep.

Probably getting my hopes up anyway. Looked at flight stats and J is sold out the next few weekends of my flight. Bu thought I should find out anyway. I'm sure it Would be useful to someone.

The droop happened to me. As far as i can tell the seat when retracted to upright position is the same as a normal chair. A usual rollaboard should do. if no just raise it a bit more with some blankets or extra pillow

i wouldnt worry about it though. Unless you are high status say platinum your chances are very low to none. Always worth trying though.

You should investigate improving your seat position in PE on the A380.
