That's what the airlines seem to be running on these days, according to eTurbo News.
- Three of the nation's largest airlines reported a combined $906 million in third-quarter losses on Wednesday. The largest by far was at Delta Air Lines Inc., where bankruptcy looms unless it can quickly win concessions from its pilots and debt holders.
So I guess it's no surprise that American Airlines is putting back those seats it took out a few years ago to give us economy passengers a roomier ride. "Times have changed, and we must acknowledge that in today's low-fare environment, having fewer seats on our aircraft has put us at a real revenue disadvantage compared to other airlines," AMR chairman and chief executive Gerard Arpey said in a statement.
*Sigh* I'll miss that extra legroom.
