Airport Seats

Airport Seats

airport seatsAs I was sitting, on the floor, in another huge airport.  I ponder why I am sitting on the floor looking at dozens of empty airport seats.  Where I am sitting in this particular airport (Las Vegas) the seats are in rows of three, back to back, stacked down the aisle for approximately 5 pairs of two.  So all in there are 30 seats, of which 22 are occupied.  I am sitting on the floor, with several other people I don’t know, looking at 8 empty chairs.  My only thought is that I am not alone in cherishing my personal space.  I would rather sit on the floor by myself than 3 inches from someone I don’t know.  So instead of complaining I have come up with a solution.  If the airport seat manufacturers would just put 3-6 inches between each seat there would be enough personal space for almost everyone and it would actually save space at the airport.  As I sit here on the floor, there are at least 8 other people sitting on the floor, taking up significantly more floor space than a chair.  If the airport seat manufacturers would put 3-6 inches of space between each seat, less people would sit on the floor thus opening up lots of extra space at already overcrowded airports.

  1. Hi Michael,

    Didn’t think you would mind sitting so close to an other person, familiar or not :).

    I am still enjoying the videos of your Oshkosh adventure in 2012. I would not mind flying a 195 in the future.

    Keep those posts coming!
