Flew Mexican carrier Interjet two days ago. All seats were coach. A good eight inches in front of my knees, although admittedly I am only 5' 9".

My favorite seat is on the A321T planes that AA uses on non-stops between NY (JFK) and CA (SFO/LAX). Seat 11F is the exit row window seat in the front row of coach and has more legroom than a business class seat. Once in the air I can put all of my stuff against the bulkhead and my feet still can't reach it. Someone needs to make an inflatable ottoman for this seat, and some hanging cup-holders to attach to the wall.

Downside is that the tray table is in the arm rest so the seat is a bit narrower, and although it's a "window" seat, there is no "window".

And you might need to open the exit door in an emergency, but in my experience that's very rare.

It is a "Main Cabin Extra" extra-legroom seat that they normally charge extra for, but Platinum and above can reserve it in advance for free, and Gold can reserve it for free 24 hours before departure, but it's usually taken by then. Sometimes they open up at the last minute as the Executive Platinums get upgraded into Business class.

No TV, if that matters to you. And I find that those seats are many times taken by parents with their babies and toddlers. No thanks. I'll take my chances in the regular seats.

It does have the entertainment system, it's on an arm that stores it between the seats and it swings up and the screen fold out in front of you, it's fairly adjustable, also has a USB charging port in it. There are AC power outlets below the seat cushion area.

There's a better picture below, you can see a round joint about knee level on the front of the arm rest, that's the arm for the TV screen. And another showing the screens in their operational position.

I think due to the normal additional cost for these seats I haven't encountered babies at all. Most of the passengers are business people, and sometimes airline employee family members.

I just happen to like it, knowing that I won't have someone in front of me reclining making it impossible to use my 15" MBP.

AA also started serving complementary food on these NY/CA non-stops about two years ago. This time of year I can get that flight and seat for as low as $148.20 one-way. Last year as low as $118.20.

A fine example of why passenger flights should charge by the total (passenger + baggage) weight carried.
