Airline Seats are Getting so Small That Federal Regulators are Worried

23 14.04.2015 Инфо

A government advisory committee is looking into whether a lack of legroom could also be dangerous for passengers' health and safety during air travel.
On Tuesday, a flight attendants' union testified at a committee hearing that the reduction in personal space has led to more air rage, with many of the incidents going unreported.
The lack of space could also lead to problems with evacuations, witnesses said, noting that the government runs safety tests with 31 inches between rows when some airlines today now have just 28 inches.
The advisory committee will eventually make non-binding suggestions to government regulators who will decide on the future of seating.
