Do airlines not understand or see that people, generation after generation are getting taller? Seat pitches are getting beyond ridiculous so that we are all squashed up and contorted into shapes that cannot be maintained for a flights entirety. I’m awaiting for the day they start suggesting standing room only at this rate.
We are constantly warned about the dangers of DVT and advised to do exercises to prevent it. What a joke, I don’t have room to raise an ankle, or an elbow for that matter. I know it’s a money making business but it shouldn’t be at the detriment of health.
I’m a big bloke and it’s not just that my knees touch the seat in front, they dent the back of the poor person in front. The passengers next to me have to put up with a knee in their leg space. I would put my legs in the over head compartment if I could. I do always try to get an exit seat, but that’s not always possible.
Come on airlines, economy passengers would like a bit of comfort too!!
