MEA / Bmed A321 Seat Pitch

Thu Aug 03, 2006 10:07 pm

Hi

I know BMED and MEA have identical layouts on their A321s of 31 business plus 118 ecpnomy seats. Does anyone know what the seat pitch in each class is? It is not published anywhere.

Thanks

BMED's seat pitch is 31 inches in World Traveller. The best seats in WT on the 321 are the exit rows at doors 3.

MEA's Economy pitch is universal accross the fleet- 32" for Economy and 48"-50" in Business. The difference is that MEA has interactive IFE in each seat whilst BMED has broadcast entertainment.

thanks!

I knew MEA had good pitch because i read lots of good reviews on Skytrax but nowhere was the exact amount specified. they basically have 3 rows of business rearwards of the second door (12) and 19 between doors 1 and 2.

I was just thinking that with such low seat density the operating costs per seat must be quite high so they must recover it by good yields up front.
