Airline Seating Guide
Airline cabin seat pitch sizes for airlines around the world.
SEAT PITCH

This is the distance between a row of seats - the measurement from the same position on two seats, one behind the other - it is NOT the legroom area as some believe. (For example, the back face of the seat in front of you, measured to the same point on the back face of the seat you are sitting in).

Airline            First     Business     Premium Economy     Economy 
 
Garuda Indonesia     *          54"               42"          33"

Garuda Indonesia has really improved a lot.. And it is still growing (SkyTeam next week). However, CGK (Soekarno-Hatta Airport) must improve to make GIA release its full potential!!

It's a true milestone what GA have accomplished in such a short timeframe. They've been removed from the European black list of carriers, operate one of the youngest fleet of aircraft within Asia & continues to blossom joining Skyteam Alliance in coming weeks.
Well done GA.

Yes i can't believe it myself to see such an improvement to be coming for Garuda few years ago! and i can't wait for the Jakarta-London direct flight! we would be expecting more British tourist then, and also the completition of the new airport (cuz the current ones are just unbearable to deal with its traffic of passengers) which should be quiet done next year end! maybe after that 5 star rating will be within Garuda's grip!

And i also hope for Vietnam and Philippines airline to be improving in the next coming years as Garuda did

Yeah, that's why GA deserved the award: "World's Most Improved Airline"
But there is still a long way to go, since it is still not allowed to fly in the USA

didn't it has to do with the indonesian aviation regulations which are still not in compliance with the international aviation regulation standards...?

I've never heard GA is banned in US. I think its the company decision to think that route to US is not profitable for the time being

GA and all airlines from Indonesia are prohibited from entering the United States. This is because Indonesia is ranked a Category 2 country by the FAA. This also makes US airlines unable to enter Indonesia. That is why codesharing exists. Currently Garuda codeshares with China Airlines to fly to the US (which transfers to Delta for regional flights).
