I know all about Skytrax and stuff - just wanted to know which airline you all thought (from experience!) had the best Y Class product.

I'd probably have to say JAL or Qatar Airways.

Any thoughts?


What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

In my limited experience I would say that Qantas is by far the best economy class I have ever experienced. But I have only flown in longhaul economy with QF and CX.

If your talking about cabin atmopshere and not so much about the service I would say Southwest has the most comfortable cabin. I flew JAL once and eventhough the service was special, the seats and cabin environment wasn't good. I have no idea about SE Asian airlines or Quatar Airways and such but on this side of the world, I think United has a good overall Y class.

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Yeah, SK are great intercont, but not that good on the European/Intra-Scan/Domestic routes.

You can't beat Finnair around Europe. Free booze in Economy. Very nice!

Qantas domestically in Australia are very good too.

I do quite enjoy a spot of flying - more so when it's not in Economy!

Depends on what you're after.
being tall, my number one preference is 34 inch pitch.
For that, you can't go past TG and MH, and that's why I consider them the best in Y.

I think SQ and QF are way over-rated for Y class.

Travelled recently on SQ in Y, and had my knees under my chin for most of the flight.
If you're under 5'7, then it's a different ball game.

I based this on long-haul economy only and from my own experiences.

Long haul my favourite is NZ, simply because of the 34"seat pitch. In addition, service is always friendly, and cabin very comfortable and pleasant. Once they have refitted the complete fleet with PTV they will be perfect.
However, I was also very happy with CX and BA on all their long haul flights, and in 2 weeks I get to try SQ again on 4 sectors...
LH was always nice as well, even without PTV (just as NZ). I like the clean modern cabin on LH, and - against their reputation - never had an unfriendly flight attendant.
Never was happy with QF really, but that was years ago, and I'd love to give them a try again  Smile

Air New Zealand will soon be in contention. A 34inch seat pitch and PTV's, accompanying good food and friendly F/A's. They seem to be the key ingredients to a successful Economy Class!

Sorry, but no free booze anymore. Wine and beer is free, but now you have to pay for booze in economy class.

From my mostly domestic U.S. experience:

1. AA (more room throughout coach- those extra inches are heaven)
2. WN (on short hauls--comfortable seats, and if you can get near the front of the plane it means you're quickly off at your destination)
3. UA economy plus (again, the extra room)
4. VS (the best trans-atlantic service I have experienced, and they put me and my wife in the back of the plane where the seating is 2-4-2, and we got the 2 by the window)

It all depends in what part of the world you're flying:

Here's my top 6-list:

for LCC: definitely Air Berlin
for Asia: MH

for N-America: CO

for Europe (excl. LCC): MA

My preferences:

Asia - Cathay Pacific
Middle East - Qatar Airways (333's)
Africa - SAA
N. America - Continental
S. America - No idea  Wink
Europe - SAS/Virgin Atlantic
Low Cost - Iceland Express (Exit row  Wink)


Best service would have to be TG, but they don't have PTV's or anything special!

Rob!  Smile

NZs new cabins will give the worlds best airlines a could run for their money on the routes NZ compete on.

NZs B74R (refitted): PTVs, 34" leg room plus of course NZs award winning service

NZs B772s: PTVs, 32" leg room plus of course NZs award winning service

With the new cabins, NZ will be unbeatable. Service on board is second to now, that is very very important.

I second what the Kiwis said. Air New Zealand will be fantastic, cannot wait for their new Business Class product.

25 Boeing7E7 : I remember 34" pitch standard in coach and 38" Domestic First, so as far as I'm concerned they all suck today.
26 Post contains images ZKSUJ : NZ still have 34" pitch in Y in the 744s
27 AmericanB763ER : I can only list the ones I've flown but here goes: 1.LX 2.AA 3.KLM 4.VARIG'S MD-11 (comfortabe seats) 5.MH
28 NWA757boy : mine would have to be: 1. KLM 2. DL 3. CO 4. NW 5. AA
