SAS have made the seatpitch information public

Danish newspaper BT: " Troels Rasmussen from SAS today confirms that he, after presure from consumer organisations will make SAS seat pitch information public for all classes"

Seems like 737's and 321's and Fokker50's should be avoided if travelling economy class

Here it is :

Airbus 340/330 :
Business class Economy extra Economy class

127cm / 50 in 94 cm / 37 in 81cm / 32 in

BOEING 767:
Business class Economy class

119 cm / 47 in 81 cm / 32 in

BOEING 737:
Business class Economy class

84 cm / 33 in 76 cm / 30 in

MD80 / 90
Business class Economy class

86 cm / 34in 81 cm / 32 in

AIRBUS 321:
Business class Economy class

84 cm / 33 in 76 cm / 30 in

De Havilland Q400 :
Pitch 81 cm / 32 in

MD90 :

Business class Economy class

86 cm / 34 in 81 cm / 32 in

FOKKER50
Business class Economy class

81 cm / 32 in 76 cm / 30 in

I was sitting toward the back of an MD 90 a couple of days ago and there is no way that it has 32 inches. It's just as bad as the 737.

Ironic that an ad in their printed timetable says they have the pitch money can buy. The picture features the back of an elephant. The SAS MD90 is not that bad if you consider comparable craft in the US. The A321 os SAS is the best furnished and pitched I have ever flown. Love their toilets!

Last time i flew A321, cph-osl (ok, it was a while ago), i sat far in the back. and no way i had a chance to sit normally. no room at all to my legs (6'3" tall though). to me it looked like 737 leftover seats in the back they'd put in with a 30 or less pitch, as they were missing cup-holders and some with minor defects. never again.....

i more enjoy the good ol' MD's, sitting in the forward rows.

I *think* that on the A321 it depends on the row.

I've been on them a few times now and I *think* that forward rows have more pitch than the back rows.

Or is it just my imagination?

I flew in row 16 on a 321 CPH-ARN a couple of days ago and it was tight but no worse than a MD.

Recently I was in C to LHR on a 321 and got the bulkhead on the left. Here the bonus is in the wider seats. However, I moved back a row because it was empty but was not too impressed by the pitch. Surprised if it really is 3" better than economy.

If you are flying in C then definitely go for the 321 over a MD. Laptop power is nice as well. I was in row 2 on a MD-90 recently and it was quite uncomfortable.

Are the 321s that fly intra-Scandinavia different from those that fly elsewhere with C class? You can redo the seat width but probably not the pitch. SK only has 5 or 6 of these planes.

8 A321s right now (see www.sasflightops.com), and I think they all are in the same configuration. The seats are just widened for 2-3 seating in C-class for the European two-class flights.
