This airline has the world's best economy seat; here is why it beats all
Passengers flying economy on Japan Airlines can enjoy greater leg room due to an increased seat pitch, which is an industry term for the distance between the back of your seat and the back of the seat in front. As well as the available space for your legs, the measurement includes the seatback structure and cushions, plus the tray table. On Japan Airlines, the JAL Sky Wider Seat pitch is reportedly 84cm, according to a report by The Independent.
In this year's Skytrax World Airline Awards, Japan Airlines has recently won the prize for the Best Economy seat. Image source: Reuters
