How to Check In, Seat Assignment, Legroom and Other Fees

Royal Air Maroc and Your Seat

Business class seats range from a seat pitch of 40 inches to a luxurious 70 inches. Seat pitch is the distance between a point on one seat to the same point on the seat before or behind it. More seat pitch means more leg room, but the thickness of the seat also impacts the space available for your legs.

If you book online you can usually reserve your preferred seat in advance, although this is not possible for some reservation classes.
