I do not believe in government intervention, but, when airlines cram people into smaller and smaller spaces, they have to step in. American, Delta and United are offenders that must be stopped. Remember, no longer is flying exciting, it is frustrating. And when to annoy passengers prior to boarding the plane, and then stuff them into cramped personal spaces, you are creating a situation that is volitatle. The government has to step in and create minimum standards or perhaps, again regulate the airlines since they are not capable of doing so themselves. Just ask yourself this, how many congressmen travel economy? GIVE ME A BREAK. GusTRUMP, GET ON THIS. YOU WILL MAKE MANY MANY THOUSANDS OF HAPPY PEOPLE.

I suppose Gus is willing to pay more - so he can fly premium economy or those airlines - Southwest and JetBlue - who have mainted more traditional spacing. By extension Gus would have us all driving bigger cars I suppose and living in bigger homes. Where would he stop regulating our lives?
