As everyone who flys knows, airlines have been aggressively shrinking seats and bathrooms while people have been getting larger. Now with 75% of the public overweight, obese, over 6’2” or infirm, and the rest being squeezed and encroached upon, reasonable seat regulations are a necessity. But airlines and the FAA have said NO and would allow further shrinkage.
FlyerRights.org has been fighting for humane airline seating since 2015 but now needs funding for a major court battle and lobbying effort to overcome entrenched airline interests, FAA bureaucratic erertia and Congressional indifference. See FAA-2015-4011 at www.regulations.gov and www.flyersrights.org for details. Please give now if you want to stop seat shrinkage or be ready for more shrinkage and even semistandup seating in the future.
