Ten-abreast in a 777 may not be the one because the configuration is used by major airlines like Emirates, KLM, and Air France. On the other hand, the others are only used by charter airlines and LCCs (like AirAsia X).

Thomsonfly's 767-200s in 2-4-2 configuration and a 30 inch pitch were not nice.
SATA's A310-300 in 9 abreast config was also a bit claustrophobic if you had the window seat.
The Kavminvodyavia Tu-154 I flew recently had the tightest legroom ever. My legs were jammed against the seat infront, not much more than the minimum 26 inch legroom. 3-3 configuration, but something like 32 rows, or maybe more in the Tupolev.
J31/J32s are also a bit tight on the legs.

Least comfortable for me have been charter airlines (Airtours, Air 2000, Thomas Cook and First Choice). 28" seat pitch - I'm only 5'10 and I can't sit with my legs in front of me. Physically impossible. Probably just as well I can't afford to go abroad this year

Quoting BMI727 (Reply 1): I've never experienced any of the configurations you mentioned, but how about 6 wide in a BAe-146/Avroliner? Not fun at all, even with an empty middle seat.
I had the unfortunate experience of having to sit in a middle seat of a 6 abreast RJ85 between two strangers on a 2+ hour flight once. Needless to say I couldn't get off that plane fast enough. I try to avoid these aircraft from now on, they make FR's 738's seem spacious and roomy.
Ill second that, flew the CRJ 200 with SAS and I couldn't beleive how cramped it was, and im only 185CM
Also Corsair 747-400 Had VERY tight seating (28"), WOW that was the worst 13 hours of flying EVER!!!
Last one was City Jet (AF) Avro Bae 146 3+3, Wow I was so PISSED As I payed for the 2 exit seats on the last row for me and my Fiance, and Online it showed a 3+2 with an exit row in the back config, but it was the 3+3 when we got onboard and NO exit! Man I was pissed off!
Most generous in Y, were SQ 777-200ER 3+3+3 Config and Also SAS A321 and I also Like the seat pitch on SAS mad dogs
