DON’T EX­PECT EL­BOW ROOM

Popular Science - - TINY -

Un­til the ’90s, it was rare to find some­one in the mid­dle seat; most flights were less than two-thirds full, and peo­ple (nat­u­rally) grab win­dows and aisles first. That empty space meant pas­sen­gers had more room to stretch out, board­ing moved more quickly, and bin short­ages were bless­edly un­com­mon. To­day, cheaper fares mean nearly nine out of 10 spots are taken on an av­er­age flight.
