Major Airline Eliminating More Legroom...Again

Having short legs isn’t often seen as an advantage in life, but it’s becoming more and more of a boon for those who travel.


According to CNN, American Airlines has announced that it’s shrinking the legroom for its economy class passengers by reducing the space between rows of seats by another two inches per row.

This will take place on their upcoming Boeing 737 Max planes, which will be able to hold 10 more seats than their predecessor.

For most of the economy class seats, the distance between seats will shrink to 30 inches, but three of the rows — two at the back and one in the middle of the plane — will be have only 29 inches of legroom.

The shrunken legroom will be an inch or two smaller than what Delta or United offer but is still a tad roomier than Spirit or Frontier Airlines. Southwest Airlines, JetBlue Airways, and Alaska Airlines economy passengers enjoy the most legroom of the major carriers.

Why is American Airlines making this change? Not for the reason you're probably thinking of. STORY CONTINUES ON NEXT PAGE
