UK to Sydney - best airline for tall folk?

Interested in user's experiences of travelling to Australia from UK. Starting to look at flights and see which airlines offer something more than the pitiful 31 inch seat pitch without spending a fortune.

Have used KLM Economy Comfort before and considering BA World Traveller Plus. Any tips gratefully accepted!

Thanks

HI, if you are looking at BA WTP, try and get Qantas Premium Economy, you sometimes find it at the same price if a little flexible.

FWIW I find VS PE better than BA WTP (via HK rather than SIN)

Which user? *wink*

A few airlines offer 34" in Economy between the UK and Australia; Thai and Malaysia for starters.

United have 'Economy Plus' which is a small supplement over economy and you can reserve it at the time of booking. Don't rule it out on the basis of it being a supplement, take into account the full cost for each carrier. You will need to fly via the US though.
