To the editor:
My response to Dale McFeatter’s column (“The incredible, shrinking airplane seat,” Nov. 8) is in agreement plus offering a solution.
I travel the U.S. and Canada for my job, so I get the frustration of flying a lot. I am very tired of the airlines playing games, so instead of flying I drive if my travel destination is within a 10- to 12-hour drive. This year alone they have lost over $10,000 of my business.
I make additional business stops in between the final destination.
I save because of no baggage fees, and I fly the jet (truck in this case).
I am not a large person, but I fit in my truck seat very comfortably.
Simple economics: If more people would drive, then the airlines have less customers to fill their tiny seats.
Enjoy the countryside views as you travel.
Enjoy more local restaurants along the highway.
