Probrably QF. I travelled them in 2001 on one of their 743's SYD-NRT, it was pretty shocking. There wasn't alot of legroom and the seats hardly reclined at all  Sad

Probably Ryanair. Amenities such as reclining seats, window shades, seat back pockets, etc aren't really standard. Not to mention that you have to pay for refreshments and get crammed among 189 people on a 738 with miserable seat pitch.


If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I truthfull would say that I do not think that any economy class on any airline is good... But.. the worst that I have ever flown on would of been 5G.
I am only 6ft and I was cramped up on every skyservice flight that i was ever on. my legs felt numb by the end of that flight. lol.

Thanks

I think that most times LCC will have a worst econ. Seat then regular carriers. It should be that way, that is why I pay less to travel with them. There are always exceptions though.
The only LCC I have ever been on is WN and the cabin was not half bad. My worst experience in an econ. class was with an AA 767. It was a 7 hour trip from London to Boston w/ no PTV's or nothing. The thing is though, my leg was broken so I had to keep it straight (and it hurt like hell) and the flight was bumpy. so my opinion is a bit bias.

Not true, at least with US LCCs - I've flown WN, B6, and FL and the economy class experience is as good as, or (in the case of B6) better than anything on US network carriers.

Haven't flown F9 or NK, but my understanding is they are generally in the same league as WN/B6/FL, and F9 has the TV too.

Euro LCCs are an entirely different class, though...

Worst economy class I've ever flown in was QF's "Cityflyer" BNE-SYD - that was the tighest seat pitch I've ever seen, and the FAs were brusque and rude. The standard QF domestic economy class flights I had (SYD-AYQ, AYQ-CNS) and QantasLink (PPP-BNE) were comparable to US domestic coach, but with a little better cabin service than most US network carriers - FAs were all very nice. (Nice to order a cup of tea and actually get brewed tea instead of hot water and a cheap, nasty tea bag.)

I don't like Lufthansa's economy product, just terrible on long haul. On short haul it's not different than any other airline!

What's all the fuss about IB all the time?  confused 

I flew IB several times between AMS and Spain and never had any problems. Is it because there are so many negative things about IB on A.net that people have an opinion about them even before they started their trip with IB?

All airlines have their good and bad days....I fly KL often and sometimes their really good, sometimes just mediocre and I've had also very, very bad experiences with them. But I keep on flying...it's a people's business...

IMO there's no such thing as "Worst or best airline". It's all about your personal preferences and needs.

btw I am in no way involved in IB, and have no benefit of "defending" IB.  white

I agree with that, but only aboard the older A340s. The problem is that the IB service is veeery bad on Y...

American's 757 and A300 (with no MRTC) are pretty bad too.

Ugh I know, I just flew BOS-MAN on their 752.....needless to say, I will NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER fly American again. Not only was the econ. the worst I have ever hand, but the overall experience on BOTH flights (bos-man and man-bos) were, by far, the worst I have ever experienced in my entire life. I know its harsh, but its fair to say that I officially HATE American airlines and I will go out of my way to avoid everything involving their airline.

Whew, glad to get that off my chest!

Ryanair by far takes the cake. Also, I remember not too long ago being cramped into a 752 for ORD-SEA. Pretty sure it was AA, but they seem to be making a fuss as of late that they have more legroom. Go figure.

I know the trip on the 757 in Y might have been awful, but if you have a chance, get the 777, don´t miss this oportunity. It´s a great aircraft, and American keeps very comfortable seats in Y. If you have the patience, read this trip report I´ve written about it: http://www.airliners.net/discussions/trip_reports/read.main/65915

Respectable opinion as all in this thread. I simply don't agree with you. Compare AA or IB with LH is like a comparison between a Ford and a Seat with a Mercedes Benz.
