Interesting anicdote that a friend of mine who will be travelling to HK next month and has switched from VS to BA because the new virgin aircrafts seats are 'too tight'.
I saw a tweet from a friend of my wife. He is a frequent flyer to JNB
, but when VS
switched to the 789 he was very dissatisfied, and seriously considered flying with SA
in the future, with their A332. And he is not an aviation geek, although can tell a Boeing from an Airbus.

I do believe that. The BAE 146 had an incredibly tight cabin. It was not just seat width, but cabin height as well made that plane uncomfortable.
I had one flight with a BAE 146, I was so happy when I could leave that aircraft!

Quoting frigatebird (Reply 5):For me, price is important. I was looking for flights to India, and found one with QR 77W/787 for around E600, and one with 9W A333/A320 for E800. I'll still go for the latter.
Except, 9W operates 737s!
By the way, your sentence appears contradictory. If price is important, why go for the option pricier by 200 Euros?
Thank you for the correction. You are right I made 2 mistakes in 1 post. The connecting 9W
flight is indeed a 737, but for a 2,5 hour flight I can manage that
Mixed things up. And so I did with my next sentence. A comfortable flight is more important to me than the lowest price, and I don't mind paying 100-200 euro extra for a comfortable seat.
Unfortunately, the choice is often a bit more seat pitch in Economy with the same narrow seats (KL's economy confort), or paying twice the amount for Economy plus, which is pretty close to being old style business class (BA, CX
). I wish there could be something in between, like 9Y
777s or 8Y
787s with just 20% premium.
