The seat specified in Airbus' A350 ACAP is 60.11 inches. The 787 seat in Boeing's ACAP is 59.6 inches. If you use 18 inch seats with 1.5 inch armrests, which Airbus specifies in their ACAP, you get 60 inches flat. Put 3 of those together with two 17 inch aisles you get 214 inches. 787 cabin is 216 ...

Re: 787 Seat width @9ab: significant drawback vs. A350?

Well, If you consider 0.55 inches per seat "significant" in terms of shoulder width then sure. The seats in both ACAPS are only 0.51 inches different in total (59.6 for the 787 and 60.11 for the A350).
