Too bad they're not redoing the seats at the same time...

Is it just me or anyone else noticed that Y seats are lower? I wasnít comfortable crossing legs. It felt that seat is too low for it. Never had this problem in old 737 seat.

Probably not true, but a good conspiracy theory.

Not to mention that once you were on the aircraft, nothing was preventing you from putting your bag in the overhead bin, even on a BE ticket. Once you passed the GA, you were free to do as you please.

Its only the window seat that needs the underwear storage to facilitate that all-over tan. The aisle seat is too far from the window to benefit from the rays
