I have to say that the legroom/width issue will depend entirely on the
dimensions of the people you ask.  I would much prefer the width as I
have no problems with legroom, but find the width of seats very
uncomfortable, in general.  Maybe, this is a male/female thing as women
do tend to have wider hips and shorter legs than their male
counterparts.
