|I have a theory: Airline travel would be nowhere near as uncomfortable, painful, and awful as it is if they just made bigger planes. It's really quite simple:
And just like that, I solved 98% of the problems associated with airline travel. Bigger planes would mean bigger seats. Bigger seats that fit normal-sized human beings. For whatever reason, airplanes were designed to accommodate small, dwarf-like creatures with tiny legs and no arms. Assuming it would cost airlines a bunch of money if they simply put less seats on current planes, my solution would be to have the same number of seats, but on a bigger plane. And if you're gonna make the "how will such a big plane even get off the ground?" argument, I'll simply point you to the current state of affairs, where a 200,000-lb chunk of metal is magically able to get airborne, despite any amount of logic to the contrary. Somehow I doubt adding another 100,000 lbs of metal will make any difference to a plane's airworthiness. #travel
- Bigger planes would allow more legroom. For everyone.
- Bigger planes would allow wider seats. This wouldn't just benefit fat people.
- Bigger planes would allow more than one armrest between seats.
