What do you think is the best and worst economy class in this world at the moment. So no old airlines. I have not traveled on many airlines apart from SQ, S2, UA, TG (when I was very young).


For me S2 was the best because of its excellent seat pitch and its service

Service-wise, on the airlines I've flown, KE holds the top spot. Good seat pitch, and amazing seat recline. Otherwise, I'll have to go with SK's long haul economy product.

Cheers

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

SK is Scandinavian Airlines. As far as best economy, I'd have to give that to British Airways World Traveller. Very comfortable seats, decent pitch, great food, good entertainment, and great service (of course). As far as the worst, I'm not a big fan of Northwest's economy product, especially when I get stuck with some of their older 757s.


Every takeoff is optional, but every landing is mandatory.

    Not many US domestic economy cabins are anything more than bearable. Southwest at least try to create a good atmosphere on board.

    Long haul, BA Economy is hard to beat, though I just flew on Continental for the first time and was very pleasantly surprised.



    The glass isn't half empty, or half full, it's twice as big as it needs to be.

    I myself have heard some very bad comments on British Airways World Traveller Class. I heard the seat pitch is very little and some one tall with struggle all the way, is this true?

    My top 4 are as follows:

    1 - Qatar Airways (34 inch legroom in coach A330's)
    2 - Malaysia Airlines
    3 - SAS
    4 - British Airways

    TG also offers one of the best all round products, but their lack of PTV's in Eco is holding them back!  Smile

    BA is not a great economy class airline. The pitch at 31" is cramped, and they don't have amazing IFE as its not AVOD. I've flown SEA-LHR-SEA twice now on the 744 and I like BA, but their economy class could use an extra inch, new seats, and new IFE. They do have good food and service though. They also provide little packs with socks, a mask, and a little tooth brush, which is nice.

    I have only tried KL, BA and QF long haul and out of these three airlines, I found QF to be the best with BA coming in at a close second and KL third, mainly because of the somewhat boring IFE.

    MH has one of the best economy classes out there.

    -34" pitch (The seats are quite comfortable for Cattle Class)
    -Foot rests (they are large, and sturdy, unlike some of the others I've seen)
    -PTVs (not as good as SQ, EK, or VS, but still...)
    -Exceptional, attentive service
    -Good Catering

    The only time I've managed to sleep on a plane was on MH. I slept for 6 hours on my KUL-LHR flight. The seats also have a little "hook" so that you can hang your coat too!

    One tip that really helps: For Airline codes and Airport codes, drag your cursor over them, and it will show the corresponding info!
    Best economy class that I have been on: Out of the airlines I have been on, AA,CO,DL, and Atlantic Airlines of Honduras(don't fly them!), CO has definitely been the best so far.
