Alex On… IAG Group acquires “enhanced comfort” A320Back to Forum
Thanks for the info, openfly.
So far Vueling has not disclosed what the seat pitch will be. But hopefully, as Irons80, notes above it may not be worse than the current 30 ins found on BA mainline.17 Mar 2015
@KarlMarx – Swiss is my second preference, ahead of easyJet (London airports are harder to get to for me) and behind BA. Must have done well over 25 LON–ZRH round trips in the last year, all in Y, so am fairly well versed in the various options.
Swiss from LHR is handy for day trips due to their earlier start time out and later return. That’s my prime (only) reason for using them from there.
As someone who does exclusively travel short haul Y, I must admit – not sure what all the fuss is about the new BA seats …17 Mar 2015

I would agree, better seats giving slight more kneeroom.
Now try Club Europe, where you had 34″ and now have only 30″, maybe you would see why some people are not very happy; as the editor of BT reported, it is not easy to use a laptop in row 2 back.17 Mar 2015
Jordan – “not sure what all the fuss is about the new BA seats” –
if BA is offering a business class offering at a business class fare, then at least provide a business class product – not an economy product!
@icenspice – “who uses a laptop (to work) on a 1 – hour flight?”
just walk front to back and take a look, plenty of people are using computers to either work or watch films…17 Mar 2015
I do not use a laptop for travel anymore. I work on an iPad……and find in the most cramped conditions it is easy to use….even on South West Trains five abreast seating!18 Mar 2015
My concern, apart from those raised by everyone on here so far, is how Airbus can get away with describing such a layout as ‘enhanced comfort’.
I understand that slimline seats allow for slighly more space around the knees, but how can an airline that is proposing to stick another 10+ seats onto an aircraft represent this as enhancing anyone’s level of comfort other than that of their sales staff and customer’s bean counters/senior management.18 Mar 2015
