 Small Airline Seats Cramp Passengers

Cramped Airline Seats
Shrinking Airline Seats Are Squashing An Ever Increasing Sized Population.

A lot of the time people say, you are imagining something, and usually that is the case, but if you thought that your last flight seems a bit more cramped than usual you would be right, over the past decades airlines have gradually been reducing the size of their seats in order to cram more people into each fight and generate larger revenues.

But the problem with this is, the airlines are reducing the size of their airplane seats to about 16.5 Inches today from about 18.5 inches in the 1990’s but the general population is increasing in size from an average of 159 lbs for females and 186 lbs for men to about 166 lbs for females and 196 for males and increase of just over 20lbs or just under 1 Stone.

The added weight and reduction in seat size can only lead to one thing, a cramped flight for the majority of passengers.

The seats might be getting smaller but the costs are ever increasing just like the size of the population, an informed decision needs to be made when booking a flight to ensure a comfortable flight.

Now every industry wants to make money and increase revenues, but what if everyone did the same thing, then we would all be sleeping in beds so small you can’t even turn over in them without falling put, Hotels and even hostel have not reduced the size of the beds guests sleep in so why can’t airlines try to take into consideration the comfort of their customers as well.

Airlines have a huge responsibility to transport millions of travellers every year, just like hotels, youth hostels and guesthouse have the responsibility to accommodate travellers in affordable accommodation of good quality, airline have a monopoly on long distance travel so they should acknowledge the needs of their travellers to have a comfortable flight.

There is no way to enforce a standard seat size comfortable for the majority of people, but hopefully airlines will understand the need to balance profits and the comfort of passengers.
