Cat­tle class

Onboard Hospitality - - Global Perspective -

Re­search pub­lished by Loco2, has shocked fre­quent fly­ers by re­veal­ing that they are al­lo­cated less space than that given by law to cat­tle on their way to slaugh­ter. Based on a medium-sized calf weigh­ing 75kg (the av­er­age weight of an adult pas­sen­ger) the le­gal en­ti­tle­ment for cat­tle in trans­porta­tion is 0.5m2, whereas on a flight, the av­er­age space per pas­sen­ger is 0.35m2. Per­haps it is not sur­pris­ing to re­port Loco2 is a search and book­ing engine for train tick­ets in the UK and Europe!
