Doesn't work for bulkhead or exit rows where there isn't a seat in front of you!

But then, within each cabin, bulkhead or exit row seats are unlikely to differ with respect to dimensions A, C or D.

C can be narrower when the tray table is in the armrest.

That is true. It will be interesting to see the data as it is populated.

For A, one should really be measuring the pair of seats one is sat in rather than the pair in front, hence bulk head is not an issue, but the last row is.

This would also deal with seats that are misaligned with the ones in front (even if their frames connect to the same floor harness).

Are measurements being actively taken on flights? If so would it be possible for some sort of community document where we can see which measurements have been taken so that we can crowd source more, a Google Sheet would work well for that.

Secondly, if people are actively taking measurements, are they using an actual measuring tape or something like the measurement app on an iPhone. If using the iPhone measurements, I suppose that on the document there should be a note as to whether it was an actual measurement or a "digital" measurement for potential accuracy fluctuations.

Well I was thinking it would be quickest if I take all the measurements but I've been a bit lackadaisical in this area recently. I do travel with a traditional tape measure, and though other people may get slightly different centimetres, if I did it all then it would at least be internally consistent throughout. I do have a few updates however, so I'll them in later today once my phone has charged up.

corporate-wage-slave sorry to ping you here, but I was wondering if you would be able to upload any updates that you might have to this thread.

A lack of flying must surely be getting to me if I want to start looking at seat measurements...

Yes, I think I have some updates. I will see if I can revise this thread tomorrow.
