Crammed in the air

There have been several stories recently about arguments on airplanes because of passengers reclining their seats. I may be next. The way most airlines — hello, American! — configure their seats makes it virtually impossible to hold a book or laptop. And try getting out of your seat to go to the restroom!

I had the misfortune on a trans-Pacific flight of being scrunched into one of the peasant-class seats, which also had some sort of airplane apparatus box under the seat in front of me, making it impossible to stretch my already cramped legs.

I know that revenue depends on how many peasants can be crammed onto a plane, but have a heart!
