Yeah, I don't think so.  BUT, with that said, the CEO of American Airlines says that even though the planes are more crowded, the seats are much more comfortable.  Yeah... well that doesn't help the leg room!  I'm much less concerned with my butt.. .even the non existent one that I have, but still.  This is stupid.

American Airlines isn't the only airline decreasing the room between the sets and rows of seats, it's pretty much all of them.  They are trying to increase revenue.  They don't want to increase the price of the airline ticket- although those are going up too- they would rather make your trip as uncomfortable as possible.  This is a time when I wish I was like 5 feet tall.  That would probably make this ok.  But as a person who is 5'7", with most of my height in my legs, this is horrible.  And the first class seats are so expensive....

UGH!  What is a person to do?  You save for a trip... you want to go somewhere cool, but if you travel coach, which most of us do, you suffer from no leg room.  AND hey.. we have more comfortable seats!  Well, yay.  I'm tellin ya right now, that is not going to help.

Fly the friendly skies... with your knees up your nose.  Maybe they will start lowering the price of first class.  Right....
