Regulation is Needed

Regulation is absolutely needed. I just finished an AA flight from LAX to AKL on a 787. The pitch was crazy in my Econ seat. So close I could not lift my foot up and out because of the ridiculously close space. After 9 hours my knee began throbbing.
Traveling in economy shouldn’t be a jail sentence. Everyone deserves a minimum degree of comfort. If it costs more, so be it.

I also participated in an evac drill once. I was probably 19 at the time. We were all paid a stipend, and we never touched the overhead bins. It was simply a matter of get this over with, give me my money. But ... it was fun.
