U.S. SENATOR SEEKS END TO AIRLINE SEAT ‘SHRINKAGE’

-

Plane seat shrinkage is causing one U.S. senator to stomp his cramped feet. Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is taking aim at airlines who, he says, are guilty of packing plane passengers “like sardines” into tiny, cramped seats with no legroom, the Associated Press says. Schumer says he wants to require the Federal Aviation Administra­tion to establish seat-size standards. “One of the most vexing things when you travel on an airplane is there’s almost no legroom on your standard flight.”
