Late reply. Pitch = distance between seats, i.e. knee room, determined by the measurement of the gap between where they are bolted to the floor.We're heading a bit off topic but I semi-agree. Mrs and I fly occasionally enough to make it seem normal rather than exciting, and during a flight I might recline the seat slightly, but never all the way. Sometimes a passenger in front of me might do the same but it has never been an issue. I am of average height so if you feel confined maybe you should pick an airline that provides greater legroom? (see my previous post)Didn't they adjust the pitch of the seating in the VLocity carriages a few years back? Maybe it was between the first batch and the second order. I recall that they decided to make them more upright.
Just sayin', there is a massive difference in real terms between a seat pitch of 29" and 31".
The seatback angle on VLocity carriages was made slightly more upright with the introduction of the intermediate cars, and I assume on all sets built since then. As far as I know the pitch has never been altered.
