When as an infrequent flyer you buy a Y ticket, from airline or Orbitz et alia, the comfort you are going to get is a crap shoot. If I knew that spending 10-15% more would get me more comfort I would do it. Never happens! In my case, short a little overweight it is not the seat width, it is what I do with my legs and especially when the person in front puts their seat full back. Pitch, or at least room in front of my knees makes a big difference. And as I have before mentioned, getting a motel is easy, the 5 star system tells me what I am going to get. I would like having a similar choice in flying. I would rate WN as 3 star reliably. JetBlue is similar. The rest??


You are talking about B6 and WN, but neither fly the Dreamliner nor 10 hour sectors.
Try the Dreamliner on a 8+ hour flight, come back and let's see what your reaction will be. It's worse than anything B6 or WN have to offer.

I believe you. I am curious what a slim line seat sliding(?) seat provides. Does it protect knee/leg space when the person in front reclines their seat? Can you eat or read comfortably when they do so. I thought with a 32 inch pitch it might be reasonably comfortable.
