Don’t you wish they’d switch to this plane?

Sometimes when you are onboard the plane, do you get the feeling that you are being squeezed like sardines? That’s why some call flying coach : Cattle Class.

We all need our own space. And with the ‘democratization’ of travel, more are on the road eh sorry, in the air. We all would have read somewhere about bad beahavior onboard flights, so much that the Tokyo convention is expected to be replaced with the Montreal protocol. What’s that? It’s an agreement that facilitates law enforcement agencies around the world to prosecute folks whose misbehavior crosses the line.

Why do people behave like that? Perhaps its because we are squeezed like preserved fish in a flying aluminium can? Sorry, digress again…

What plane are we talking about?

If you read this article, you’d think that they are being technical with the inches of space of a seat on an aircraft. However these small but significant improvements do make your life (well those couple of hours anyway) more comfortable and you will definitely be grateful for it.

In our research, it appears that some literature suggest that if you fly under 6 hours – comfort would rank below a variety of other factors, eg flight availability, cost, frequent mile etc. Really? Why don’t you tell? We wouldn’t want to have our knees bent in the same direction for more than 2 hours. Its called thrombosis aversion.

Let’s hope that not only Delta and Swiss Air that will buy and fly the planes…

    1. We took Easyjet and its the same! But to be honest we can’t really blame the airlines (no Mel does not work foe one). The fares have either come down or stayed low, at least if you compared over the last 10 years. As a business they need to look for ways to increase revenue – cram more passengers or fees? Or both!

  1. My husband being 6’1″ struggles. We’ve decided we must sacrifice elsewhere and pay the extra for Economy Premium. They are slightly wider seats and longer leg room, right? I’m a shortie so I’m still fine. Haha. But, business class would be great, if I could afford it. 😂 2 inches isn’t bad. It’s inches, not centimeter, right? I just read the link to the Bombardier article and I can’t remember. Sorry, old age. 😅

    1. Yes inches, so that should help. Understand your husband’s predicament. Usually the seats by the exit are either reserved for those with babies or likely booked up. If the space in front of the seat is just a little longer, it helps!
