"Delta, United, American, Southwest and other airlines around the world have installed seats with trim metal frames and ultrathin cushions, squeezing rows closer together to pack more people on each flight. Three-quarters of Delta’s domestic fleet and one-quarter of United’s now have the new slim-line seating. Now, cost-conscious airlines are moving to lighter 17-inch-wide seats on their Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliners.

 

Each row of coach seats used to have 32 or 33 inches of space front to back for a seated passenger between seat backs—a measurement the airline industry calls seat pitch. But now many big airlines are down to 31 inches of seat pitch. United goes as tight as 30 inches on some of its Boeing 737s.

 

In September, Boeing announced the launch of new, denser seating on 737s called 737 MAX 200, aimed at low-cost airlines. The new MAX 200 version will be built with additional emergency exits and fitted with 200 seats. The current version of the same plane typically has 160 seats and is capped at a maximum 189 for safety reasons. Seat pitch on the new version will be as tight as 28 inches, the company says."

Most of those First Class seats are given by points to the poor slobs that travel so much they earn the upgrade. The amount of airplane farts those poor bastages had to inhale is mind boggling. Keep yer thin seats get me to Dallas or where ever for 240 bux and just forget about it, like a dentist appointment or a prom night rape shower.

 

That's how capitalism works buster. Now go be a big boy/bot and steal another article to troll the corndogs with.

I plan on living my life without ever being locked in one of those Aluminum tubes.

 

Probably won't make it but so far so good..... :)

 

Son flies almost every week, he has given up on the little seats and just uses his points ( or whatever there called)

to upgrade to first class.

 

They can have a standing room section for all I care. :laugh:

Whenever possible, use foreign airlines. Most have more pitch, better service and the beer and wine is included. Oh, the joys of government subsidized airline travel. :D

 

The brain trust at United has implemented a new mileage system in which the number miles issued will be predicated on dollars spent and not miles flown. Fly coach and you lose (higher status members might break even in coach), especially on longer hauls. However, if you fly on one of their Star Alliance partners, you get the actual mileage. Between the above reasons and the additional mileage awarded by using their partners when flying coach, I might never pay for an international flight on United again. Pure genius to incentivize and reward your customers to go elsewhere!
