Poll: Best Economy Class Middle Seat

Mon Oct 30, 2017 7:07 am

If you had to choose a middle seat in Economy Class, which airline* would you choose to endure?

*More than one airline may be applicable and kindly expand your answer as to why.
Economy Class. You vision of loveliness; Prince Charles called and he wants you to fill in for him next week.

Easy. The middle seat on Swiss's Bombardier CS100 or CS300.

As long as there's attractive company in the seat next to me, I don't really care. In a few hours I'll be flying Ryanair Weeze - Lanzarote and guess who's got a middle seat. I don't mind as long as my row companions are nice.

Overall, I dislike F9, but the middle seats on refurbished A320s/319s and new 321s is 19 in wide, which makes the overall crappy experience somewhat more bearable.

QF haven’t had 767’s for a good while now

My pick would be either a 9 abreast 777 or SA’s A346’s which I understand are 8 abreast and have 34” legroom - which would make getting up and out a little easier.

I had to struggle it out in the Qatar Airways B787 middle seat.
I'm glad my seat mate in the window was a narrow body..... I barely survived...

No window or aisle, and I'm not on the flight.

WestJet 737-700/800s have ample leg room so it’s bearable. Their -600s have no legroom.

Rouge’s 319/321s are intolerable.

I was in a middle seat at Ryanair today, but I had a hot chick next to me in the window seat so I'm not complaining.

I flew on a UA 752 in the middle seat of the bulkhead and sat between the 2 hottest girls I've ever sat next to on a plane! What made it better was I just came in from DUB in BF and had some liquid confidence flowing through me and had a phone interview that I totally crushed on the layover!

It makes up for all those times my brother and I would travel together as kids and we'd both get middle seats, but he'd always get the hot coeds and I got the old and/or fat people.

Yup me as well. At least there's aisle access, but no window.

I sat in one on both the inbound and outbound on XiamenAir's 787 this year SEA-SZX-SEA

Your statement is far from nice, sir, it makes you look like a creep.

Maybe it was his wife or something... or he took some KFC onboard and put it on the seat next to
him.

Not the best on the at-seat storage front, which is a bit of a killer for me... but I still wouldn't care :p
