Could Airlines Make Flying Any Worse?

Could Airlines Make Flying Any Worse?

Flying can be a stressful experience for most people. Having to wait in line after line, going through annoying security, flight delays, running from gate to gate to catch your next flight, and flying headaches. All this stress leads to people on edge and are only looking out for there best interest, which leads to heated arguments while in the air and most of the arguments are started by someone reclining there seat too far back. Most major United State airlines used to be 32 inches, but are now 29-31 inches in a row. Airlines are adding more seats because of the high demand for tickets which makes seating on the plane much tighter. With less room, there are  little compartment space for carry on bags which leads to  people having to put there items in the floor. When someone decides to recline back, expensive items like laptops, iPad, tablets,and beats can break.

So what have the airlines been doing about this matter? Southwest Airlines had adjusted the chairs where you can’t go as far back in the chair. Delta airlines is putting in  more cushion that comes forward when you move back which helps protect other passengers items. But even with these changes, it is still not helping. Airline crews have no tolerance for tension in the air. So now airlines have overcharge for luggage, don’t serve there customers fast enough, cut direct flights to major cities, and no they are making the seats smaller. With the cost of an airplane ticket these days it might just better if you drive because the airlines are telling us they are only concerned with taking our money not us.
