not a lot of use really. the measurements are defined as 'from point to the same point on the seat in front'.
obviously, the design of the seat and its padding can make a huge difference. personally, i find i have more personal space on b.a. [31"] than on MAS [34"].
your comfort also depends on your proportions, not just your height but how that height is configured. someone with long shins, for instance, may be more impacted by the seat in front reclining than some one with long thighs.
suck it and see, i say.
I read it this morning. Was puzzled that some of the better carriers I have used were not mentioned.
It's the Daily Mail. Great for toilet paper, not much else ;-)
The survey wasnt done by the Daily Mail. Interesting reading and proof for what I alwys thought..Virgin were better than most others...and they fly non-stop from Manchester unlike the regional airline BA.
now that's exactly what i meant. when i am actualy in the seat, i have way more room on b.a. than on virgin.
I'm surprised at the 'splayed legs', surely more comfortable to put them both the same side.
Also seen tall people use the space under the seat in front to put their feet in.
Luckily I have no such problems, being 5'5" and having a long body and short legs!
Mr Sazza is average height and also has no problems (BA WT) - in fact travelling WT+ last year didn't seem much different comfort-wise, so it's 'back of the bus as usual' for us.
The photo of the larger lady seemed to be a mock up - even a size 0 would have problems getting that tray table down !!
i am 183cm and 110kg and really have no problem in any economy seat.
it's just some are better than others.
discomfort can be all in the mind.
Nearly useless report.
