I know this might have been discussed before, but that was before I have been here. I was wondering who everyone thought had the best economy seats on domestic, and international flights. Also, what about Biz and First.

From my limited experience, I must say that on domestic flights, I was very surprised by the comfort and roominess on Westjet's 73G's. The seat pitch is between 33 and 34", plus they have headrests with extendable flaps. Definitely a very comfortable seat, especially when you consider they are a low cost airline.
For international, I'd have to give the nod to Air Canada, when I flew on the A330. Seat pitch also ranges from 33 to 34" which is very generous for a Y class service. They also have the same headrest design, and believe me, this makes a big difference.

I don't think AA has the best seats. The pitch is good, you can lift the head rest up so that shorter people don't have to deal with it but there is a big metal bar that hits you in the head and the tray table isn't big enough to hold my 12" powerbook which is tiny.........

At 6'4", I would definently have to say that AA 777 First is the most ILL-FITTING seat ive ever sat in. Most comfortable position was upright with the footrest down. Give me AA C class before first any day.

Some of you may think I'm crazy, but I think the best (single) economy seat is on Delta Connection carrier Atlantic Coast Airlines - seat 9A (exit row) on the FRJ aircraft. That seat has almost as much legroom as Delta's Business Elite.

F Class: CX ( It has being voted the best in Skytrax) much better than UA and QF (CX only has 12 seats compared to 14 on other airlines on a 744)
J Class: VS and BA
Y Class (note counting premium Y Class): NZ?? ( I heard they offer full legrest and footrest)
