Seating capacity

I keep getting requests from members to revise the seating capacities for aircraft because airlines keep finding creative ways to cram more and more people into there cabins by decreasing the space between seats, a trend I look at with some distaste. I am beginning to think that when we define the maximum passengers for an aircraft we should require at least a 30 in pitch for the economy seats.

Agree! And FYI - you can make more with fewer passengers than "max" - simply by adding more biz class seats. That's free's up some weight to fly more cargo underneath.
