Seat Pitch Guide

Seat Pitch
Airline Seat Pitch details (inches) are shown for medium/long haul flights. Seat Pitch is the distance between a row of seats – the measurement from the same position on two seats, one behind the other – it is not the legroom area.

Dimensions represent typical seat pitch offered by an airline on international flights – this may not be available on all of an airline’s fleet of aircraft.
