I am quite interested in what you guys think about what type of extra room you would rather have in coach:

1. One seat in every row removed for greater width.


2. Rows taken out allowing more leg room and pitch.

Obviously AA thought the second was best. So what do you think?

Sometimes I go about in pity for myself and all the while a great wind carries me across the sky.

Leg room!

While width is great, I would much rather be able to recline more and have a little more leg room. I have only glown AA coach a few times recently, but it wa much more comforatable then the other UA flights.

For me, no question. Seat pitch rules and most people I know only complain about legroom, not seat width. In most aircraft, there really isn't a need to remove seats for width. The 777 is the only bird that comes across as being satisfactory in both 9 and 10 abreast configurations.

I'd rather take a 777, 10 abreast with 34" seat pitch, as opposed to one 9 abreast, but with only 31" seat pitch.

I can't say I've been in a too narrow seat, even the CRJ was fine for me. Then again, I'm not a very "wide" person.

Removing one seat from each row would be insane! You would lose a bunch of seats, and a bunch of money!
