Is Emirates the only (supposed) premiere carrier that configures their Triple-Sevens in a no-frills cluster, or are there other ones? Yes I realsie that they have individual IFE etc, but compared to CX, SQ, BA and even the Americans, they do pack them in.

Actually, even in Business on their A332's they fit another seat abreast.

What's up with that?

Lauda Air also have parts of the economy cabin in a 3-4-3 layout. BA also operates 3 or 4 of their 777s in a 3-4-3.

However Emirates actually offer 2-3 inches more space between the rows (34 inches in total) than most other operators of the 777. So I guess its been a choice - less space for the legs or less space for the shoulders. Personally I´d go for the Emirates layout as I prefer space for my legs. 3-3-3 with 34 inches would of course be perfect (as seen on Malaysia´s 777s).

So Malaysian are the airline to fly in economy on a Triple-Seven? That's good for me as they frequent AKL daily direct to Kuala Lumpur and Europe. But that's with 744's. How's their seating on these?

Hey thanks TR

Have always flown SQ or CX in the past to Europe, but will try MH next. They always have comparable, if not better deals. And if it's not for work, price is king - if I can't use airpoints.

Any word on LAN Chile - I'm going on holiday to Sth America later this year? San Francisco first 'though (NZ - I know they're great). And Melbourne too (NZ again) - all for holidays, not for work. Life's good!

I believe BA has converted those with 3-4-3 to 3-3-3. TG is said to be converting from 3-4-3 to 3-3-3 on the -200s. There are two other airlines with 3-4-3, China Southern and Air Austral.

Malaysia Airlines 777's have 2-5-2 but in some aspects this seating makes more sense, as there only will ever be 1 person per row who will be stuck with 2 people to cross to get out, if it was 3-3-3 then people in either window seat would have to cross 2 people to get out if you know what I'm saying.
Malaysia Airlines 777's have generally more seat width than their 747's, and leg room is great on all their aircraft.

BA does not have any 777s with a 3-4-3 layout. These were converted a few years back. All 777s are 3-3-3.

China Southern also has a 3-4-3 layout on the 777. It looks pretty cramped if you ask me:

I think I read somewhere on this forum a while back about several airlines going 7 abreast on Boeing narrow bodies...that I can't imagine.

The Boeing 747 has an interior width of 20ft and the seating configuration is 3-4-3.

The Boeing 777 has an interior width of 19ft. 3in. and the seating configuration is 3-3-3, typically.

The difference in width of the cabins is so little, that Emirates and others have decided to cut back a little on the width of the seats and also the isles, and to add a 10th seat across.

Although it might look cramped, many who have flown Emirates claim to not have any complaints, as you do get the extra few inches in seat pitch.

Remember that the majority of passengers are not aviation enthusiasts and would not notice the difference between a 777 with 10 abreast seating and a 777 with 9 abreast seating.

Well, that still leaves the 9 abreast seating as the more comfortable version  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
