Popular Science - - TINY -

Over the past 50 years, the space be­tween rows (i.e., the pitch) has compressed by an av­er­age of 4 inches. Some bud­get car­ri­ers of­fer only 28 inches be­tween seats, the tini­est space yet al­lot­ted on a com­mer­cial flight. Chairs have also trans­formed, from pil­lowy cush­ions to fire-re­sis­tant-but-min­i­mal pads, each less than 20 pounds. Trim­mer pro­files, though, slide butts back in the seats, restor­ing a few inches of lost legroom.
