Cheap airline seats
Which airlines have the comfiest cheap seats?
Most of us want to nab cheap airline seats. But will you sacrifice comfort for cost?
A Los Angeles Times story dissects the value of your budget-friendly airplane seat. It starts by measuring legroom by seat pitch, which is how much room you have from an area of your seat to the same area in the one in front of you. It doesn't really deem any airline a winner, but some are better than others. On Air New Zealand, you get one of the higher seat pitches, 33 inches, along with a few inches of foot recline and a headrest onto which you can put a pillow. Among the other best cheap airline seats, JetBlue offers 34 inches with a good headrest and leather seat padding and Singapore Airlines has seats with a 32-inch pitch, footrest and leather headrests that can move depending on how tall you are.
In your opinion, which airlines have the comfiest seats with the most legroom?
