Not to labour the point but Scoot at 34 inches for most of their aircraft?

Had to look.

28" on narrow body, 31" on wide body.

On the wide body there is Scoot in silence with 34 to 36. But that premium economy, and only 33 to 45 seats per plane.

You're correct. I missed one. However, they are a budget airline and one would expect uncomfortable seating with them. Not so much with regular carriers.

I usually fly KE(Korean air) and i really like their 33-34" pitch economy class seats with 9 across on 777.
Makes a difference on the transpac flights.
I avoid the US airlines...

Wow, JL has just 8 across in their 787.
That is really nice!

But not CX. Not comfortable even on a 9-abreast 77W. Only 32" legroom. Noisy plane. Overall bad experience in terms of seat for a long haul flight.

From BKK to JFK through American it is $1,800 PE one way the same as JAL.
the joys and pains of codeshares. As typical in codeshare agreements, the marketing carrier (AA) essentially buys seats from the operating carrier (JAL) in bulk and then has to make them cheap to actually sell them as AA codeshare flight (or they remain unsold and AA takes the loss).
JAL on the other hand donít have difficulty selling seats on their own.
