Default Cathay Pacific seats on Airbus 330

The flight from Paris to Hong Kong (12 hours) in an Airbus 330 was the most uncomfortable one I have had since the trimotor Ford in the 40's and Monarch charter flights more resently. The economy seats were not reclinable so they are obiously a compromise in design. Between the curved back and the slipping flotation-type seat cushion attached by velcro I ended up without any sleep and a very sore back. Unhappily, I have two weeks to look up against the return trip.
I will naturally avoid Cathay from now on and hope I don't run into this type of seat again on another airline.
