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.
