WN Seat Pitch 737-300 And -700

Sun Apr 23, 2006 7:20 am

WN lists the "average pitch" of -300 and -700 seating as 32.5 inches (32.55 for -300 and 32.57 for the -700). SeatGuru.com lists -300 pitch as 32-33".

Why does WN call the pitch "average"? Ignoring the exit and bulkhead rows, is the pitch better in certain rows?

I'm usually fortunate enough to snag an exit row... but am curious about pitch differenes elsewhere on the aircraft.

Thanks.

I don't know about Southwest, but I remember Alaska's downloadable schedule a few years ago showed some rows on their MD-80's as being 33" (across the aisle from the galley), some as 32", and some as 31". Also I remember when JetBlue was announcing increased seat pitch, they said the rows toward the rear of the plane would be 34", while the ones toward the front would remain 31".
