I am a tall person, and used to fly often years ago; you know, when you "dressed up" to get on a plane and the food was awfully good, well... sometimes. Then things began to change. Prices creeped up steadily while leg and seat room disappeared. I did not need a website to tell me where the bulkhead seats were; I knew from experience. Then one airline and another, decided that they would charge extra for those seats. I used to bring two suitcases and a magazine. Airlines competed for your business by providing services that would entice you to fly the friendly skies. Today? I drive.

The airlines employ MBAs and lawyers who specialize in defining legal, commercial and physiological levels of human discomfort in order to achieve maximum revenue per square inch of interior space. The're quite good at it too.
