The District of Columbia U.S. Court of Appeals ruled last month that the FAA must show actual data to back up its unsupported assertions about the safety of tightly packed airline seats.
The decision comes in response to a petition from the nonprofit group Flyers Rights, which requested that the FAA issue minimum seat width and pitch rules for airlines in the U.S.
This could turn out to be a win for consumers, but it isn’t yet.

Flyers Rights filed its original petition in 2015, asking the FAA to issue rules governing minimum seat sizes and spacing on commercial aircraft. The petition noted that since the 1960s, airline seats have grown smaller while passengers have grown larger, and it claimed that minimum standards were required to protect passengers’ safety and health. The safety argument centered on the ability of travelers in high-density economy cabins to evacuate quickly enough during a survivable crash; the health argument centered on the possibility of deep vein thrombosis and other adverse health effects.https://spinningongreasedgrooves.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ http://henrythomas373.blogspot.com/2017/10/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to.html https://henrythomas373.tumblr.com/post/166205077676 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261919 https://medium.com/@henrythomas373/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes-4608ae12422f https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x63sj95 https://www.evernote.com/shard/s733/nl/173139927/fb898182-3bd1-46d4-8a67-5707158056aa https://twitter.com/887757510949523456/status/917241619027546112 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f6X3c7U6VAY https://henrythomasweb.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://johnsonbrendon.tumblr.com/post/166205079805 https://medium.com/@jonescenane/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes-6552d75292d https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x63sj94 https://www.evernote.com/shard/s575/nl/173143521/b68d233d-8d81-4736-96ec-5cb4100116d0 https://twitter.com/887778750720389120/status/917241621124706305 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261929 https://jonescenane.tumblr.com/post/166205076697 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261928 https://medium.com/@jonescenane/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes-71929cd24abb https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x63sj97 https://www.evernote.com/shard/s740/nl/173144123/e3f8ed5c-cfeb-437b-8e5f-b7c625dabbdb https://coolkylemilethings.tumblr.com/post/166205079894 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261924 https://markhenrie20.tumblr.com/post/166205076517 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261927 https://richardbrin72.tumblr.com/post/166205079974 https://richardbrin72.tumblr.com/post/166205080039 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261926 https://thinknaturalremedies.tumblr.com/post/166205079604 https://thinknaturalremedies.tumblr.com/post/166205079354 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261920 https://michaelsuriss.tumblr.com/post/166205075427 https://michaelsuriss.tumblr.com/post/166205075497 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261916 https://stevertkalish.tumblr.com/post/166205077908 https://stevertkalish.tumblr.com/post/166205077583 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261925 https://smithstevekha.tumblr.com/post/166205077256 https://www.instapaper.com/read/965261922 https://markhenrie20.tumblr.com/post/166205075542 https://andreamarki.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://semhola.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://hardyvin.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://michaeltaylor704.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://stevesmithey.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://hillerymiles.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://hangeryvild.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://wingerhap.wordpress.com/2017/10/09/recent-court-decision-could-lead-to-more-space-on-planes/ https://www.facebook.com/1937699219819702/posts/1949208385335452 https://www.facebook.com/2145349412358801/posts/2159388127621596 https://www.facebook.com/1196532883786836/posts/1218174001622724 https://www.facebook.com/116536889057260/posts/122837551760527 https://www.facebook.com/694888234039489/posts/703078809887098 https://www.facebook.com/1965530576998541/posts/1973340562884209 https://www.facebook.com/348392262253851/posts/355344208225323
