    CNN - Airline squeeze: It's not you, 'it's the seat'

    Somehow, I doubt the fact that people tend to be larger than they used to be does not affect the airline seat squeeze...

    I look to the airlines and industrial designers to come up with innovative solutions for the demads of today's world and this includes seats, space, service delivery and the freedom to have a great flight, long or short, this shouldn't matter either.:)

    The 787 might improve expereince some, but things like the 3-4-3 coming on AA 773's WILL likely not do so...

    Such seatplan changes worry me personally most especially 3-4-3 as I love to have a window seat. Indeed, the 787 could be a game changer, as long airlines use innovation and services towards the flyer in mind and just their bottom lines!;)

    If I didn't have the aisle for my legs, the economy seat becomes darn near impossible for me. An average size person is barely contained in most economy seats. A person of size will always spill over the boundaries of their seat. It's the old 2 lbs. of bologna in a 1 lb bag deal.
