    The More Comfort seats also offer 2 inches more recline and a pillow and blanket. For width, I estimate at least 18″ in the main cabin to comply with Airbus’s seat width requirements, and at least 19″ for the Best seats based on their similarities to Lufthansa’s Premium coach seat. The More Comfort seats should also make a great extra legroom option on Lufthansa’s mainline fleet, in addition to their current Premium coach product.
