Airplane Legroom Guide

Legroom you'll get with the main airlines

Just about everyone wants more room on the plane, but legroom is not just a matter of comfort – it’s a matter of health, too. Awareness of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) has raised interest in airline legroom.

Cheapflights.com has compiled a table of major carriers' seat pitch for coach or economy seats in individual aircraft. Seating space on airplanes is approximated by width and seat pitch – the distance from a point in the head rest to same point in the head rest in front. For example, if an airline has a seat pitch of 81cm in economy, this means that there is a distance of 81cm between the front of one seat and the front of the seat behind it.

We do our best to ensure that all of our airline information is accurate. However, seat pitch and other specifications can vary from plane to plane.
