Michael & Iain Butler <email@example.com> shaped the electrons to say: >I can't see how cabin width affects passenger space. Surely the >only thing impacting the passenger is seat width and pitch. Has 1. IF the cabin is narrower the airline may be forced to use a narrower seat, say 17", to have the same number of seats. A wider cabin could allow 18" seat widths. 2. Curvature matters if you are sitting against the wall, and it usually works such that a narrower cabin means a higher floor and thus a greater curve to the wall. I'm 6'6" tall, and it makes a LOT of difference to me if the wall has me bent sideways. -MZ -- <URL:mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org> Gweep, Discordian, Author, Engineer, me..
