When I asked Counter from SeatGuru about his thoughts, he told me, “While the A320 does have a wider diameter fuselage, it doesn’t necessarily mean that airlines will put in a significantly wider seat.” He also took a look at the data they have on their site and came to a similar conclusion that the A320 will have slightly more width on average. I always find the A320 more comfortable irespective of the airline. The Numbers for Air China and Lufthansa are plain wrong. Anyhow one of the constant “this manufacture is better,” arguments I hear is that the Airbus A320 seats are so much wider than the B0eing 737s. The attendants were rude and more interested in gossiping in the galley, but this is about seat width in 737s vs A320s, so I’ll reserve comments for a more appropriate forum.

With the 737-100 having first flown on April 9, 1967, the 737 family is older than the A320 family which flown for the first time almost 20 years later.However, to better understand the history of the two families, letâs take a look at the different 737 and A320 models. Looking at the specifics, we can see that the Boeing 737 MAX beats the A320 with a higher max payload (46,040 lb vs 44,100 lb) and a higher thrust power. I took a look at airlines from around the world that fly both aircraft and used SeatGuru.com to find out the width of each seat.

But please don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I dislike the 737… Again it’s an amazing machine that has past the test of time, but I do prefer the Airbus! Not even if you wanted. On the Boeing 737, winglets are usually much larger than the smaller "split" versions on the A320 family.

Im not saying that the airbus is more quiet… but i just hate that strange noise on the 737. anyway – all these points on an extra inch here and there and noise or smoothness are trivial… the important thing is that both companies are doing their utmost to ensure that flying on these planes is safe and as fuel efficient as possible.

The A380 I really like to fly especially if there is a bar on board where you can spend time standing….. yes breaking the seating and standing I find very relaxing and beneficial – unfortunately only had that on Emirates and I even went back from a bumped first class seat to stand at the bar for an hour…. Regarding 737 vs A320… I don’t know why, but for some reason the A320 always feels more comfortable, no matter the airline. Highlight is i am not a very tall person. It really was a terrible experience that I will not soon forget. I just flew American Airlines, 737-800 from LAX to BOS. It all depends upon the airline when it comes to comfort. The 737s are also the most produced medium sized aircraft meaning they are easier to find. Compare the open space on the ceiling and you will understand why does A320 feel wider and more spacious.

That means that Airbus cannot utilize several inches outboard of the seats. Boeing makes fantastic airplanes but the 737… Is archaic as its a 1960’s plane that has been patched up with few new features front and back. Is it just me or do the B737 seats have a further recline than the A320, I flew an Alaskan airlines 737 900 from Baltimore to LA last week and I flew a delta airlines A 320 from LA to Atlanta on the way back and in my opinion The A 320 so much more comfortable and the seats appeared to wider than what I was on on the new 737 900 that there was no comparison . Here are my results in inches: On average, the Airbus A320 seats are wider, but not by much. 2in. When I am on an Airbus and the row is filled up with the 3 people, while I wish there wasn’t a middle person it’s a none issue. All were on airbus, and they were much better. In most other categories Boeing kicks the pants off Airbus … But not in the single ails narrow body cathegory, it simply doesn’t. I really hated the seating arrangement. “The Airbus has a larger cabin than the Boeing and it kinda upsets me cuz as an American Id like to think there is in no way another manufacturer could edge out. Itâs only 10 inches wider and thus room enough to get a win. — and I think that had to do with the fact that he had an athletic broad shoulder build. I think it’s the way that the underseat storage is more open. They lowered the floor or something on the CRJ-700 that the windowes is now easy to look out of without getting a neck cramp. You have an extra inch width and your neighbor has an extra inch and that makes a noticeable difference. Technically the Boeing 757 also competes with the A321XLR, but the former is no longer in production, and the latter isnât flying yet. I was sure that the A320 would be so much bigger. With larger passengers every year, it does matter – but whole inches, not 0.2 of an inch! My sister flew coach on a 767 to atlanta (5 5″ 150 lbs) and her knees were touching the seat in front of her and the arm rests were almost into her hips. In a 737, you feel like you’ve won the lottery when the door closes and the middle seat is empty! On a 737 forget it. I took a look at airlines running the Boeing 737 and/or the Airbus A320. The space inside is also a factor as the A320 “trumps” pardon the pun the 737 in that area as well. And thatâs a big deal because it means thereâs typically more room for passengers, even though both planes are single-aisle. Boeingâs math is no less creative. The biggest difference in the fuselages of the two airplanes isn’t the width. Every inch in seat width makes a difference. Would that kill boeing or airbus? Who Has Wider Seats: the Airbus A320 or the Boeing 737. Oh my goodness! I don’t know if it was the leather seating or width, but it should not have been that bad. For me A320 anything..

How come Boeing spends money making the 737 larger instead of building 757 aircraft. Seat width is important, more so for larger people. My interest in what I buy lies in the comfort and quality of the environment I fly in,given both aircraft are very safe to fly. Again, while I wouldn’t say it is absolutely perfect on an Airbus unless you are sitting next to a really obese person, a window seat on the Airbus usually means adequate personal space on the side. Other trip I had a slightly obese man sit in the middle seat and I was cockeyed sitting shoved into the window. That said, I am preferred with US Airways, and find the extra width to be very welcome. Which do you prefer! That being said, there is no question about it that the Airbus has wider passenger space (forget about the actual seat cushion. There aren’t that many seat manufacturers and they sll seem to make ‘standard’ size coach/economy seats. I was shocked at the results. The difference is barely noticeable but it is there. A320’s in my opinion are a far nicer plane by far to travel on. Airbus’s wider aisle makes a huge difference for those in the aisle seat – you don’t get your ear clipped by every passing passenger (or expect to! ”. Personally i love Boeing 737. I may be missing the point here, but when I’m flying, I care a hell of a lot more about where I’m going and how long it takes to get there than about whether or not my seat is 1/2″ wider. That’s why a smaller cabin can have similar-sized seats. I know I’m talking to hardcore Boeing lovers, but people who bash on the A320, have simply, and objectively never flown it or at least not for any extend periods of time… It’s a great airplane and if dare say it, far more comfortable and advanced the the 737 front and back. æä»£ã«é£è¡æ©ãå¥½ãã«ãªã£ãèº«ã¨ãã¦ã¯ããã¼ã¤ã³ã°æ©ãä¸çªã ã¨ããåºå®è¦³å¿µãããã¾ã§ãã£ã¨ãã£ãã LCCã®æ®åã§ã¨ã¢ãã¹æ©ã«ä¹ãæ©ä¼ãå¢ããç¾å¨ããã¼ã¤ã³ã°ã¨ã¨ã¢ãã¹ã®ä¸¡æ¹ãæ¯è¼ããã®ãå®¹æã«ãªãè©¦ãã¦ã¿ããã¨ãããã ã¨ã¼ãããè£½ã®ã¨ã¢ãã¹A320ã¯ãæ©å

As opposed to SouthWest who solely uses 737’s particularly the 500 & 700 variants. take it from someone who’s scared of flying, i felt safer on the airbus. The 737 was designed in the 1960s and has changed very little since that time aside from periodic updates to engines, the Personally I feel that this is what matters all the rest are useless frills on which people will never agree. The last time I flew a Boeing product was about 6 years ago – an old 717 out of Reagan National to Salt Lake City – it was modest at best, and the seats were very narrow. I try to avoid any segments (if I can help it) that are non airbus. I figured it was time to find out. The 737 family can be divided into four separate series (or generations), two of which are no longer in production: On the other hand, the A320 family includes only two generations â¦ I fly quite often (every month or so) and mostly in 737s but I find the A320 to be slightly more comfortable. The Boeing 737 is a bit smaller with a 148â³ fuselage and only 139â³ in the cabin. Also it is a low cost airline. Good work. Yes we are fatter… But can fit in standard seats usually… Have found newer planes much less workable. More importantly, it is the location of the maximum width. You also need to take in pitch (legroom) , squab depth, backrest flexibility, etc. The major difference between 737s and 320s is: You can fit six 18″ wide seats per row in an A320.

This alone is a reason I try to plan my flights around aircraft types if possible. Also will upgrade to premium if necessary. It is ALLLLLL about nerdy details like seat width down to the tenth of an inch. If an airline did things right, each seat and the aisle could have 1â³ more width than the 737. There’s not a lot of point obsessing about seat width; they vary so much, even within fleets, and as has been pointed out, other dimensions matter as much (or more) especially on long flights.
