Does anyone else feel that economy is becoming even more "tight" for space or have I just grown less tolerant with age? Last week we flew Jetconnect (NZ branch of QANTAS) Sydney to Wellington and, although the crew were fabulous, the seats were appallingly narrow. The aisle was so narrow the flight attendant's bodies were whacking those of us in the aisle seats every time they went past. When I went to the toilet I had to wait 20 mins until the aisle was clear to return to my seat. During this time I was chatting to the lovely crew and they said it was awful, working on these planes. The shoulder room was the worst; impossible to eat your dinner without cramping your arms and doing contortions.
Next year we are flying VA PE to the UK. I only hope this is better. It should be for the extra money we are paying. I am not a spoilt princess...but the current situation is inhuman and I'd rather not fly than suffer like this. I work hard for my money and never waste it but I feel we have no choice if we want a reasonable flight (after all, 23hours is a long time).
