Petition Text

Petition text: Require U.S. airlines to limit seating distance between rows to no less than 31 inches.

Why is this important?

Minimum seat spacing will allow for faster egress in emergency situations. It will also allow passengers more room for movement during flights decreasing the possibility of blood clots. Preventing over crowded flights will help alleviate stress and tension between passengers and reduce the incidents of violence that are becoming all to common on domestic air flights.
