Simple question. If you had a choice of flying a 777 or MD11 with 9 across 18" wide seating and 31" - 32" pitch or 10 across 17" wide seating 34" - 35" pitch which will you prefer.

I have long legs but I don't have a fat arse so I would choose option 2.

A340-300 - slow, but awesome!

I have the opposite problem to my fellow country person Amy, I have a fat arse and short legs, but it would not matter which option I took as my partner goes on every flight I do, and has this annoying habit of falling asleep before take-off and occupying her seat and a significant part of mine.

The things we do in the name of love, still won't give up the window seat tho'

If it came to a straight fight between a flight on a 777 or a MD11, it would have to be the 777, MD11's are rather cramped; like their forerunners the Dc10, 777's seem roomier and have their own PTV's etc.

Well, I booked an MD11 but it got changed to a B777! So I can't really participate, sorry!

However, being broad shouldered and short-legged, I guess I'd go for the 777.

I recently flew in a 10 abreast DC-10. It was a cheap flight/vacation package, HNL-LAS-HNL, but after the flight HNL-LAS I knew I would shell out and upgrade to mainline coach next time! My legs are longer than my tush is wide, but I was uncomfortable just sitting. When it came time for the meal it was all I could do to keep from bumping into my neighbors every couple seconds. Even with long legs, I can always stow my carry ons above and stow my feet underneaththe seat in front of me (and I'm sensible enough to get an aisle, nice as a window seat is).
Aside from the seat comfort, the extra seat means the aisles are teeny tiny! With a normal width aisle you can creatively squeeze by the service carts. No way imaginable are you going to do that in one of those sardine cans.

It's all about the legroom for me baby!
