KLM 767 Transatlantic Seat Pitch?

Mon Oct 29, 2001 10:44 am

Anyone know the seat pitch of KLM 763s (economy). I'll be flying with them soon on their EWR-AMS run. Its my first time on a 767 across the Atlantic as I'm usually scheduled on larger aircraft. Any info would be great...I have heard that seat pitch on KLM may be as low as 31"!?!?! Hopefully not, last flight I took was with 34" seat pitch on KE and now i'm spoiled.

Thanks,
Chris

It sucks man. I flew from ATL-AMS about 2 years ago and both routes were on their 767's. I am not short (6'1") and I was cramped in there like a sardine. I dont recall the pitch measures, but my knees were up against the seat and i was seated as straight as i could. Good luck. Fly Delta or Continental, much better!!!

Forgot to tell you. Please don't judge the 767 by KLM's standard. It's the best a/c to fly transatlantic and fly on DL or CO and then judge the 767!!

ok first off, 767-332ER is a dumbass and knows nothing. Delta or Continental's seat pitch airn't so special. Obvioiusly someone doens't like KLM. I flew that route, AMS-EWR, and it was nice. The plane are quit new, quit and the seat pitch is nice. Yes, it isn't as good as their 744's but it is just as good as anyone elses. Its not maxed out like DL's. Anyway, I enjoyed the flight, great serive, entertainment. Nice meal too. Even poured my wine. Enjoy your flight. KLM rocks over DL anyday.

Zeus01, what good does it do to call someone a dumbass? It only shows that you feel the need to vent your aggression in an internet forum, which is pretty pathetic if you ask me. I'm sure many people would agree.

I want to appologize for my comment though, it was uncalled for.

KLM seat pitch is quite small on all aircraft, 31" on most. Here's the cabin layout, which is identical for all aircraft (apart from the amount of seats sold as business class, some of those are classed as economy+): http://nl.corporate.klm.com/Fleet/Boeing767-300ER.asp
