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?

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!

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.

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
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on
Don't believe any carrier has gone past 180 in A320s.
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.
25 david_itl: 644 is the max they are proposing. The EKExpress that was floated up by them 5 years ago would have been the all Y config. i presume that it's been c
26 floridaflyboy: Horizon Air also has seats that do not recline on their Q400. They also lack window shades. I've always thought it odd, but the seats are comfortable
27 764: Somehow I though they "only" had 408... Anyway, the British charter carriers are always good candidates. They have a record of squeezing in additiona
28 kgaiflyer: There is a difference. Many of Horizon's routes are over *breathtaking* scenery. It's hard to notice the window shades when you're going "Oooo" and "
29 Loran: I would guess Atlant-Soyuz' Il-86 must be high up in the list, the tightest seat pitch I ever experienced and an absolute nightmare (Jetstar was bad,
30 Andaman: MD11: In 1990's AY had one of their MD11's in a full charter configuration, with 402 seats.
31 Viscount724: Oasis Hong Kong definitely didn't have a high density layout. That was one of their problems -- they had far too many business class seats, almost 80
32 vandenheuvel: I flew a MP A320 some years ago. I'm nearly sure I was seated on row 32, the last row. I think row 13 was missing. This means there should be 186 sea
