Company proposing change in how airplane seats are designed

Local News

UNITED STATES (WSYR-TV) — A proposal to change how airplane seats are designed could make the worst seat on the plane a lot more comfortable.

One company is pitching a design that could call for the three seats in economy class to be staggered. That would put the middle seat slightly behind the aisle and window seats and make them slightly lower.

The company says moving the middle seat back allows for more space for everyone in the row.

The plan could stop fights for elbow space since the armrests are at different heights.
