I've finally found a sufficiently pertinent question to put on this website (Having hid spookily in the shadows for twelve months)

I am a "fuller figured" bloke and have travelled to LAX three times in the past three years. I travel with a business associate that is "fuller figured"

So far has been Virgin in Premium Economy and once (with a bunch of points) in business.

Considering space / benefits / cost etc etc I'd love any thoughts as we will be travelling next May

How about Air NZ sky couch 33 inch seat pitch. (Im not saying you should sleep together) this option would give you both an empty middle seat and the added benifit of the pop up legrests.

I realise you may have preference for VA, but i'd recommend QF Premium Economy seated behind a bulkhead will give you good space. especially if your travelling futher into the US you can try SYD-Dallas direct

Air NZ PE Spaceseats especially the middle pairing that will give you both direct aisle access.  Great amount of room both leg and width wise.

Being of the "fuller figure" - I found the PE seats on QF, both 747 and A380 pretty good.

The 747 we had the last row in the middle so effectivly had 4 seats to 2 people. The A380 we had bulkhead seats middle, and had an empty seat between us.  Enough space to move around in the seat and recline was sufficient to doze off.  But then I dont sleep well even in a lay flat bed.

I think the PE seats on the 747 are 19" and in the A380 19.5" wide.
