Do you think that airline legroom has decreased in recent years? You’re not alone.
And you’re right.
According to this article in Bloomberg, the average legroom in economy class has fallen by 5 inches since 2006, to 30 inches, and the average seat width has narrowed to 17 inches.
And it’s about to get worse.
Cebu Pacific, the Philippines’ biggest budget carrier, is cramming a record 460 seats into a new Airbus jet, twice as many as it was designed to fit.
