The Layout amenity covers everything from classic layouts to the newest space-saving premium-cabin configurations. Scores for seating layout are determined by passenger comfort and typical configurations — with the general rule that the fewer seats across a cabin, the better the layout. For example, 3-3-3 on a Boeing 777 receives a higher score than a 3-4-3 layout. In premium cabins, new layouts that provide direct aisle access receive higher scores than similar layouts that don’t (e.g., 2-2-2 staggered versus 2-2-2 non-staggered).
