Business Traveller - - UPFRONT -

AMER­I­CAN AIR­LINES IS TO RE­DUCE econ­omy class seat pitch in three rows of its new B737 Max air­craft to 29 inches. These econ­omy rows will have two inches less legroom than in the car­rier’s ex­ist­ing B737-800s (31 inches). The rest of the cabin’s seats will have a pitch of 30 inches.

Amer­i­can has or­dered 100 B737 Max air­craft. The first are due to ar­rive this autumn and will be used mainly on North Amer­i­can routes. They will have 172 seats, com­pared with 160 on the cur­rent B737s.

An AA spokesper­son said: “We’re also con­sid­er­ing some­thing sim­i­lar for our 737800s be­gin­ning at a later date.”
