With a seat pitch of 32" in economy Cathay Pacific has more legroom than most US carriers who only have 31" on their long-haul aircraft. The seats you describe actually provide a bit more legroom since the seat portion does move forward slightly when the seat is reclined. It may not seem like it but the seat does actually recline just not as much as a traditional seat. If you were in an older aircraft where the seat back reclines more and the seat is stationary the person in front of you would have been reclining into your space.

If one feels cramped in economy there is always business or first class.
