Could cattle class get any worse? Introducing BUDGET economy where airlines are squeezing an extra seat in every row
Airbus are increasing their seats from 10 to 11 seats in every row
The addition will see Airbus creating a fourth cheaper class called Choice
The change is to be launched in 2017 on the Airbus 380 model
Airbus state the move is to reflect 90 per cent of fliers using economy
Thankfully seat widths will remain at the standard 18 inches
“Thankfully” nothing – When the seats are so narrow that the little head pillows are shown narrow side up, you know it’s hell.
Those seats are not wide enough for the average adult, but the 3rd graders may do OK.
Pity the fool who gets the aisle seat, too. Those are narrow aisles.
As for BUDGET economy, a friend just told me that the EU countries are charging a US$500 travel tax on flights from the US. How’s that for “BUDGET economy”?
