BA To Shave Legroom In Short-Haul Economy Cabins

Cabins on BA's A321 aircraft.


British Airways is reducing economy cabin legroom by about 1 inch, from 30 inches to 29 inches, on its short-haul A320 and A321 aircraft to make room for two additional rows.

Passengers will see the change on intra-Europe flights next year.

The reduction will put BA’s legroom on a par with EasyJet but one inch less than Ryanair.
