Not necessarily, the question is:
Is it better to have an
18.5 " width seat @ 30" pitch? (7-ab.)
17 " witdh seat @ 32" pitch? (8-ab.)
Personally I prefer the second solution (8-abreast) not necessarly discomfort
It densifies the cabin and gives an additional 2 " pitch.
This can be ideal for flights from 1h to 6h. mission...
What airline today gives you 32" in economy on their new or retrofitted airplanes today? The likely outcome is 17" wide seat and 30" pitch. 31" pitch if it's a generous carrier.
What do you mean ?
Are you telling us that this is not possible à 32 "pitch?
Shall we still enter into an endless debate?
A lot of airlines are at 32" pitch...
A lot of airlines are at 32" pitch for aircraft they've not replaced or refurbished. But most mainline carriers seem to have this habit of coming out of refurb or taking delivery of new aircraft with 30-31" pitch. The carriers launching a brand new MAX or 787 with 32" pitch as standard in Y are more exception than the rule. And they most certainly don't add pitch to their Boeing airplanes to make up for the narrower seats. Pitch is always exactly the same between their Boeing and Airbus products.
