American Airlines took an inch off every row of seats, and customers are not happy.


American Airlines CEO Doug Parker doesn't think passengers will mind. Regarding the change in seating, he said the following:

That 30-in. pitch, having done it myself, is much more comfortable than our existing 31-in. pitch on an MD-80. It feels like a much better product..I think the whole definition of pitch needs to be better understood.
The fact is that a seat is an inch [narrower] and more comfortable ... The traditional measure of simply pitch, and comparing pitch to aircraft that have very different seats, doesn't really give the customer what they need to know about the amount of space they have.

When Parker refers to an extra inch, he is speaking of the inch passengers gain at eye level after video screens were removed from economy class. Additionally, the seats have thinner padding giving more room.

American Airlines is not the only airline cutting back on leg room to add more seats. The extra row is usually added to the economy class.

Customers can't seem to get through to American Airlines.



People are certainly frustrated and cramped.

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:
