One airline just announced they are adding more, yes more, seats to the already tight confines of the 757’s, A319’s, and the A320’s. These seats will be smaller and lighter-weight, and shorter, from front to back. What this means is we will all have less room for sitting.
For the seasoned air traveler, economy seating is already uncomfortable and tight fitting. By the time we deplane we may be experiencing leg cramps, numbness to the lower extremities, as well as pressure pain from sitting in an unnatural and uncomfortable position for far too long. In addition, there are security checkpoint lines that force us to stand for longer periods of time, which can cause various aches and other pressure induced pain.
How does the consummate traveler make the best of a bad situation? You do this by and investing in you, your health, and your physical well-being.
