As anyone who's been on a WestJet 737-200 can probably tell you, WestJet's seats 732s have been cramped compared to the newer 73Gs and 738s in its fleet.
WS has put in as many as 125 seats in its 737-200s, which is a lot. But I think WS has already reduced capacity to 118 seats per 732.
What I've noticed is that I've never seen the legroom vary by so much within a plane cabin - and we all know WS has only one class, of course!
From my experience, I've noticed that the first 3-4 rows on the starboard side (right as you face the front of the cabin) has the worst legroom. Even the bulkhead seating is a bit less roomy than one'd expect, but I don't remember. So, I generally avoid that part. I'm 5'7" (170cm).
Generally, the rows (6-7?) near the exit rows seem to be the best. The legroom is still not as good as in a 73G, but it's fine there. It's been about two years since I've gone on a WS 732, and I'll be on at least one of them on YEG-YLW later in June, so I'd like to find the best seats apart from emergency exit rows.
Sure, the obvious answer would be emergency exit rows themselves, but keep in mind that I'm hard of hearing. I'm also aware that it's against Transport Canada regs for airlines to allow any disabled passengers to sit in emergency exit rows.
I'm also sure that others here may want to know. Especially if they know they're going to end up on one of WS's 732s on a flight with WestJet, even though the whole 732 fleet is already being retired over the next several months.
