Broken: First Class seating

Leigh Duncan writes:

Ahh, First Class on Northwest Airlines. You have to straddle the cold metal seat bracket and figure out who gets to use the middle foot area -- the only compartment big enough for a briefcase. Once a bag is in place on the floor, there is almost no room is left for feet. So, passengers are then forced into further discomfort as they avoid kicking the bag or shove both feet to one side of the bracket.

Of course, you can flip down the "foot rest" -- but the height is really set for average to short legs -- so the effect is not much better than riding coach.


I agree with first class seating on domestic flights on most major carriers to be far short of being comfortable and roomy. Unfortunately, American consumers are getting what they want, CHEAP FARES. You can't drive a Cadilac across the country for a thousand dollars, why would you expect to fly there cheaper and in more luxery.

I agree...if you want more sometimes you have to pay more

You have to stradle it if you have huge legs. ;)
