Court orders FAA to address ‘the case of the incredible shrinking airline seat’ — this is how much they’ve actually shrunk

There may be a limit to how much legroom passengers can lose in the skies.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled on Friday ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to address consumer concerns about the shrinking seat size. Judge Patricia Millett, one of three judges who issued the ruling, wrote, “This is the case of the incredible shrinking airline seat.” A spokeswoman for the FAA told MarketWatch, “The FAA does consider seat pitch in testing and assessing the safe evacuation of commercial, passenger aircraft. We are studying the ruling carefully and any potential actions we may take to address the court’s findings.
