I was surprised to see that Monarch's A332's have 374 seats on seatguru. That's slightly less than the 3-class seating capacity of a 742 for an aircraft with only 70% of the 742's empty operating weight.

I wonder who today operates the highest number of seats on each of today's contemporary airliners?

It will be hands down Air Australs A380. It will be all Y configured. So There will be around 840 seats in this aircrafts.


As you may presently yourself be fully made aware of, my grammar sucks.

Corsair had around 580 seats on their 744s. So all the claptrap about not waniting to be on an A380 because too many people on board should be contemplated with that in mind.

They retained the SQ seating layout as well as all the seats, so it had a very large business class section, which was very rarely well populated. Economy was pretty much always full or there abouts.

Not sure if they currently have any in this configuration, but I flew on an El Al 744 around 2001-2003 with all-coach seating. LOTS of people, although it was nice to be able to roam the aircraft freely and go up and down the stairs!

Specifically, I meant for each airliner in production today, who has the highest seating capacity, ie A320/19/21, 737 families, A332/3, etc.

ANA operates the 747-400D version with 569 seats, being 542 in Y (and pokemon-painted if I am not mistaken). That must be one cramped cabin...

A320 = 174/177/180 seats single class
A321 = 210/214 single class
A332 = 303, 2 class config.

Just saw on Seatguru that FR's 738's have 189 seats "with no recline"!! I can't believe that, seats that you cannot recline, even easyJet has reclining seats. Didn't even know that such a thing existed! That is definitely one uncomfortable carrier.

You may well be right, I haven't flown with them for quite a while but do recall on at least one flight that I had a reclining seat near the emergency wing exit.

The only airline that I have encountered here in the US with no recline is Allegiant Air... and as cheap as they are sometimes... ive flown LAX-FAR-LAX twice on them and it has been horrible. If there was no price difference, I'd pick multiple connections over their flights. But there IS a price difference, so i suck it up

Monarch's got 384 in their A332s, and 220 in their A321s.
Thomas Cook puts 235 in a 752!
Easyjet's got 156 in their A319s and 183 in their A320s.

Hi all

where can I see, of the major companies, who fits more people on their aircraft. and the real seat size. not only the seat pitch. which sometimes can be missleading.



These are my principles but if you don't like them I have others

Don't believe any carrier has gone past 180 in A320s.

Typical for most 757s in British charter operations.

Nope EZY have 183 in there A320's. In return the have compesated by having only half a AFT galley, for an extra 3 seats.

Thomas Cook Airlines (UK) This summer will have a A330-300 fitted with 398 seats. Not sure which aircraft will be flying with this config but obviously it will be one of the Thomas Cook Scandinavia A333's.
