Current Event: OPINION Shrunken seat sizes endanger passengers: Column

The last time I was in a plane I did notice that it was not as roomy as a plane I flew on about 3 years ago. Now most people would consider this no big deal at all, but when you take a good look into it, it’s a serious health and safety issue. Since the 1970’s the average length between rows has dropped by a good 35 inches! People with major health issues involving blood flow to their legs are in grave danger. On longer flights they need to be able to stretch out their legs. I believe that this is wrong and should be taken care of immediately. This effects me and the world because millions of people get on planes every single day and the smaller the seats get the more the risk is of people getting injured or even death.
