American Airlines legroom: American is ditching legroom in economy class because they suck
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1_N8T-7cTwk


this might be the future of air travel

it's already cramp being in a tube at 30,000 ft.. and now the space between you and another passenger got even narrower..

i'm sure we will see more cases of air rage

The airlines truly don't give a damn.
This might work on a short hop (1.5 hrs or less), but no way on a across country.

Good excuse to not fly for business anymore, since the economy plus will sell out fast.
They already charge more for emergency exit seating.

It's not like they are loosing money nowadays. They make more on baggage charges....

I'm 6' 2" with a 34" inseam. It's not going to work for me.

there's no such thing as "enough" when it comes to money

it will take longer but we should drive across country more..

it's clearly that we are paying more for less now a day.. not just air travel but everything else as well

it's as if the American companies are competing to see who can screw their customers the most.
though to be fair, that was the case for pretty much ever

One of many reasons I don't miss flying on commercial airlines. I'm 6'3" and I recall coach class always being a c-f waiting to happen. The main reason I ceased flying (besides being too expensive) was the poor treatment passengers were given flying. Except for the smell an individual riding in a 53' livestock semi-trailer with bovines would get better treatment than someone forced to sit like a pretzel in a glorified vacuum cleaner after being wanded, poked, continuously mesmerized by inbred latent hostilities mislabeled as hospitality via staff and crew alike.

Haven't flown since 1990. So far, so good. I could relate a few horror stories of past experiences endured in the late '80's flying but there isn't enough computer storage on tap to contain all the words.

They might as well just bill them as standing room only.

I remember seeing a prototype of those shitty chairs 5 years ago.

I can't believe they actually went though with them!?! Are they that desperate to sardine as much cash, cough, I mean passengers into a plane? Why do I get the feeling that airline travel is so expensive to upstart, that some new airline company just popping up and giving old airline companies the bird won't happen?

And why the fuck are we having riots over "fascists" of all things? That's like so 1940's! How about rioting over corporate monopoly doing stupid shit like this and screwing over people without money with no consequences.

(watch as Kado happens at a random airport pulling this shit at a perfect time. Don't even need the alien, abductions, or infinite energy, just a random space cube out of nowhere, ploping down, stopping all flights, and basicly saying 'no'.)

I hate how Airlines have the most leeway to pissing off customers for a profit.

That's why you take the train. It may be more expensive and take longer, but they don't get enough customers to screw them over. Though, if your traveling international your kind of screwed...unless you take a boat, I guess?

There's gonna be a lot of leg cramps, and sore knees. Those thin seat frames don't look like they can hold the weight of a human who gets slammed into the back in case of a real rough landing.... I mean one of those crashes that don't destroy the whole plane and that passengers get off with only bumps and bruises. Those seats look like if the guy from behind get's thrown forward, then the seat will give way and crush the guy that was sitting it and got thrown forward to the seat in front of him (like dominoes, but all at once).

Those seats look unconformable, and it can only get worse if the people sitting next to you smell bad.
