Before today’s first news story, I wanted to post a quick follow-up to yesterday’s blurb about how evil passengers are. Two things:
1) I often refer to “seat pitch,” which refers to the space between the two headrests on airplane seats. But it’s basically a proxy for legroom. There isn’t a measurement for legroom (that I’m aware of), so airlines use seat pitch instead. In short, small seat pitch (30 or 31 inches) means terrible legroom, larger seat pitch (32-33 inches) means good legroom, JetBlue seat pitch (34 inches) is great.
2) My father’s suggestion for when someone reclines in your lap is to have your air blower thingy aim at the guy’s head. A fine suggestion, indeed.
So, today’s first story: Irish police arrested two Canadian men in Shannon, Ireland, after a an American Airlines flight was diverted there following a disturbance by these two passengers. I’ve searched and searched and found no additional information, other than the even being described as an “air rage” incident. Perhaps someone reclined too far.
