>>ATA hs 17'' seats and 30"-33" pitch so I'de call that average.<<
If 32" is "average", then I guess it would depend on how many of those 17" seats were at 30" and how many were at 33", as to whether or not it was average. Or even comfortable.
From my experience.....and I may not be the perfect critic,since I (a) have very long legs and (b) like WN
.....but my flights on ATA have all seemed pretty cramped. I'd venture to guess that the seat pitch anywhere close to where I was sitting was 30".
Could it be that ATA offers 33" pitch at exit rows (where I have never gotten to sit on board one of their aircraft) and 30" in all other seats.....but they feel that gives them license to state (and without telling a lie) that pitch is 30-33?
For us long legged guys there is a vast difference between 30 and 33.
