Airline leg space
If it feels like you are running out of leg space every time you fly, it's because you are.
In an effort to generate more revenue, airlines like Southwest and JetBlue are cutting even further into available leg room to cram more seats onto their planes.
The industry standard for legroom is considered to be 31 inches. But airlines continue to cut space as passengers become conditioned to paying for every amenity.
Those paying for first class are the only ones getting any relief. Some airlines are creating extra leg room for premium seats that come at an extra cost.
