    One more reason to never fly again....

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

    http://www.nbcnews.com/travel/crampe...ers-8C11498663

    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.

    It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood.
