Airline seats getting "thinner"...more seats on each plane.

So on top of increased tickets, add on fees for everything, security and the already horrible flying experience...

I already don't use commercial flights, if I can't drive, I don't go. But really? The airlines are figuring out ways to cram even more people into coach?

I believe is going to get worst before it gets better. Fees on top of fees, poor customer service, more mergers which equals to higher prices.

I flew Southwest to Las Vegas about a year ago and I noticed the seat configuration was very tight. The cushion and padding on those seats is minimal.

I don't know if the airlines can configure seat like that going over the ocean, sure as hell hope not.

Soon enough this will become a necessity driven market, most fliers will be business class or essentially a luxury item for people who can afford it. Skype will probably become the substitute of the future during family gatherings, love it or hate it.
