FAA Gives the OK for Airlines to Jam You Into Dangerously Small Coach Seats
Many of us know the moment of dread. You’ve boarded the airplane and you’re in the seat. The last passengers are still coming down the aisle. There’s an empty seat next to you. The people streaming down the aisle are of assorted sizes…pray for a slim one. But no, it has to be the unraveling 300-pound latecomer. They struggle to ram their bag in the bin. They collapse into the seat, thighs and hips barely contained, a chunky arm and an elbow spilling into your space.
