    My 15" MBP in a tight fitting carry case fits under an airline seat.

    Anyone with a 17" MBP able to make the same claim?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Yes it fits under an airline seat, if you put it under lengthwise anyways (the long axis parallel with the direction the plane moves in).

    yes, easily, the Unibody is just as thin as any other Macbook, well, only slightly thicker by a few mm, however make sure you've got it in a hard case, as the seats can go back and forwards and up and down slightly to adjust to the passengers weight, and you dont want to see a really obese person sit in the seat infront of you then hear a crack.

    Yeah, it fits no problem. Length-wise of course. The seat has to be wide enough for the average hip, so the 17" isn't that wide.

    I fly in small 30 seater planes for the rural flight in outback Australia so those seats are probably the smallest you can get.
