The experiment of one-dimensional luggage-laden pedestrian movement in narrow seat aisle were performed in this study, to investigate the hindrance effect of seat configuration on pedestrian flow. In a seat arrangement similar to a vehicle carriage, experiments of individual walking and single-file pedestrian flow were carried out respectively. The result shows that carrying luggage has little effect on pedestrian walking ability. However, Carrying large luggage such as trolley case can significantly increase the distance headway of pedestrians. It is also found that, although the pedestrian dynamic pattern in narrow seat aisle was similar to that in open environment, the randomness of narrow seat aisle environment shows obviously greater.
