British Airways, in an attempt to take on the budget airlines, is cutting the amount of legroom for economy
passengers by squeezing two more rows of seats onto its Airbus aircraft.
BA will reduce the gap between seats from 30 inches
to 29 inches on the A320 and A321 planes in its fleet, meaning it will offer the same legroom as easyJet.
However, Ryanair offers its passengers 30 inches of legroom.
Cue the next Ryanair advert!
BA claim this move is in the interests of its customers, in that it will be able to offer lower fares.
Whether that is true or not, only time will tell. However, unless people start slimming down, less legroom makes for a very uncomfortable journey!
