The Airline Leg Room Guide

Airlines measure legroom as seat pitch - the distance from the front of the seat to the back of the seat in front.
The minimum distance required between seats by the UK Civil Aviation Authority's Airworthiness Notice No.64, issue 2 of the 29th October 2001 is 26 inches. This is equivalent to a seat pitch of about 28 inches.

The information should be used as a guide only as the pitch may vary according to the type of aircraft operated by the airline and is subject to change by the airline without notice.

Airlines are listed in alphabetical order. Please click on a link below.

All measurements are to the nearest inch.
