Here’s everything you need to know… Are you sitting comfortably? Well, if you’re 6 foot 2, probably not. A recent study has revealed that the airline with the narrowest seats is Ryanair, while Iberia offers its passengers the least legroom.The survey by Business Traveller and studied the seat sizes of 32 airlines across all classes from economy to first, rating the seating on width and legroom, and for business class, the length of beds.The revelation that Ryanair’s 16-inch chair width is the narrowest in the skies will be no surprise to those of a certain largesse in the rear who have travelled with the ‘ultra-low-cost airline’. In contrast, rival budget carrier easyJet performs well, coming in sixth for width at 17.5”.However, this stat should not be taken in isolation – for air travellers of a slim derriere, legroom is more important than width. On this score, Ryanair comes in at a creditable 24th, with a stretching distance of 30”. On the other hand, easyJet, with a limited legroom of 29”, only avoids the bottom spot thanks to Iberia’s economy-sized reach of 28-32”. Topping the charts in economy are Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines, who both provide 32” of legroom, while Emirates excels with a maximum width of 20.5” – a full inch and a half more than its closest competitor.If you’re looking for legroom in premium economy, Turkish Airlines tops the scores with an epic 46”, while on width they share the podium with Cathay Pacific and Qantas, who all give you a comfortable 19.5” of bum room.Cathay Pacific are also the airline that goes to the greatest lengths to give tall business travellers a good night’s shut-eye with fully flat beds of 82”.See the full results at wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img
