    ugh. I am short and I find it hard to get into my under the seat bag because there isn't enough room. Less room and higher cost. I just booked our flight for $649 a person direct from Philadelphia. If we came back on Friday or Saturday (we are now returning on a Thursday) it would have been $939 a person. Give us less and take more. (opposite of my former employer-get less pay but do more-the difference between education and business).

    I remember the last time I flew AA coach. A man in front of me had his seat reclined and I hardly had any room. So I reclined my seat a little and then the man in back of me started complaining. Never again! Jet Blue extra leg room..

    I too prefer the extra leg room on Jetblue but can survive in their regular seats. I paid for my upcoming trip on points so I will wait and see if there are spots and upgrade at the gate if not I will save the money.

    As bad as American is, and as bad as United, and SWA, and JB and Spirit and Delta.............
    we are held loyal to the airline that is at our closest airport, that we are in a rewards program....
    We are a captive audience

    What are our choices? Not fly to Aruba? Hell NO. Not fly to York Maine to hug the grandsons?. Hell NO.
    i think we are just going to have to suck it up, put on our adult "panties" and squish our tall/short/ fat/thin selves into the seats and pray that in the event that we have to evacuate, that we can get ourselves out and to an exit.

    Good thing that we can come here to this forum to cry foul on the airlines and at least are able to vent to each other.

    I hate you AmericanUnitedJBDeltaSWASpirit. I can go to sleep now
    (I do like Alaska Air though)

    Plenty of leg room in business/first. It takes a lot of shopping to get a good deal, but it can be done.
