Smaller seat projects get a protest boost from passengers
Wednesday, 04. July 2012, 19:39
Airbus is blamed with greed by airline passengers due to a smaller seat proposal to gain extra space for a few more seats.
Airbus has suggested it could increase the width of aisle
seats on its A320s by two inches, making them 20 inches wide, at the
expense of the middle and window seats, which would each lose an inch making
them just 17 inches
The aircraft manufacturer evidently believes this could
provide a solution for larger passengers who don't fit into a standard airline
seat. At the moment, they have to book two seats, sometimes at higher cost.
However, a survey by flight comparison site Skyscanner
found that 84% of passengers felt it was wrong that most passengers would have
to squeeze into smaller seats as a result.
Of the 1,000 people who responded to the survey, the
majority thought the idea was "ridiculous" and "unfair",
Airbus has not revealed which, if any, airlines will be
installing the larger seats and what the likely cost to passengers might be.
