Congratulation to Scoot for topping the list! Well done for a Budget airline! Scoot’s Dreamliners have seat width ranging between 18.9 to 19.7 inches. Singapore Airlines’ A380s also does well with a seat width of 19 inches. Following closely is Emirates and Thai Airways with 18 inches on their A380-800s.

United Airlines’ economy class is the most generous in cabin baggage allowance

Topping the list in this category is United Airlines, which accepts cabin baggage based on bag dimension rather than weight. So start squeezing what you can into the accepted dimensions of 22 cm x 35 cm x 56 cm (including handles and wheels)! Other generous airlines include British Airways with 23kg, Delta with 18kg and Korean Air with 12kg. Most other airlines follow strict cabin bag allowance of 7kg but will usually allow a smaller personal item such as a handbag or laptop bag on top of this allowance.

4. Airline with the best inflight entertainment in economy class: Emirates

Emirate’s award-winning ICE system, with over 2,500 channels, will surely keep you entertain during your long flight. Skyscanner recommends flying with United Airlines if you like to watch an entire box set or two. On the other hand, budget carriers are weak in inflight entertainment. But that is not really an issue, just bring along your own entertainment.
