Its The passenger Size "Stupid"

The long discussed topic about airline seats has missed the over-arching point. It’s the passenger size stupid. Going to the demographic chart will quickly make the point. It also makes the point for purchasing which airplane makes the best sense. The average Canadian woman: Example 

1.                 153 pounds
2.    Canada: The average Canadian woman's weight is 153 pounds (69.4 kg) and height is 5' 3.4" (161 cm). Her male counterpart weighs 182 pounds (82.7 kg), and is 5' 8.5" (174 cm) tall.Dec 4, 2006.

The XWB body A-350-9 looses it talking point by the time it lands in Japan. The best option becomes the 787-9 for all operations in the Orient. The human weight and dimension factors are considered for each market. Then comes the configuration metric for the airplane. The majority of the world is not North America. Boeing has long designed its 787 towards the majority in spite of the of the Airbus XWB moniker. Efficiency blended with passenger amenity is what Boeing sought for its original design. Airbus may have opted going five inches wider more for its own manufacturing convenience than passenger sentiment.
