RouteHappy, a cool site that lets you book flights while seeing customer reviews of comfort and amenities of those flights, put out an interesting study today about which airlines offer the most room and best seats (as measured by legroom and the type of seat). You can read the study here.
We were curious how many international flights with lie flat seats are available with each major U.S. mileage program. More and more we’re hearing from people who only want to fly on flights that have these seats, as they make a big difference when it comes to being able to fall asleep.
Here are the numbers:
So if you’re looking to travel in lie-flat comfort, United MileagePlus is your best bet – and you can earn miles via United credit cards as well as Chase Ultimate Rewards credit cards. It may not be the most elegant direct aisle access version offered by newer versions on Delta and American, but they are the furthest along in having a basic flat bed ready for you. And that’s the biggest part of improving comfort.
You can also consider accumulating US Airways Dividend Miles for access to the very same flights and seats, though if the American Airlines merger goes through, you won’t be able to use them for United and its partners.
