The first elected official who is able to pass a law ensuring that airplane seats are large enough for human beings to sit in will be incredibly popular. At the moment, we are still moving in the opposite direction.
The same week, we learned that Airbus has filed a patent application for airline seats that have storage spaces built in underneath the seats—meaning that passengers would not be able to stretch their legs out beneath the seat in front of them.
Any presidential candidate who does not leap on the opportunity to endorse this bill IS CRAZY.
The vote of every claustrophobic airline passenger is here for the taking.
