The reason your flight is so full

September 5, 2018

If it feels more crowded on your flights these days, that’s because it is. An additional 201 million passengers flew on U.S. airlines last year compared to the number of passengers in 2005. But, U.S. carriers operated 1.6 million fewer flights, according to Forbes. Carriers are also reducing seat pitch — the distance from one seat to the one in front — to squeeze in a few extra rows. Many have also gone from nine seats across, to 10. The result? Planes are now carrying 32% more passengers on average than a decade ago.
