Delta airlines to retrofit planes to ten seats per row?

If the current delta airbus has 6 20 inch wide seats and a 28 inch aisle per row? where will they put an extra four chairs?


If you as a dis or otherwise abled person have ever had the misfortune to be wheeled on like a sack of flour to a commercial airline you know that irrelivant of your ize the wheelchair (aisle chair) barely fits

Now according to deltas own measurements the airbus which is most commonly used on domestic runs by delta ahas 6 20inch-22inch chairs and a 28-30 inch aisle the aisle chair below is 28 inches so yes delta will make more money, yes more people can fly but the seats will become unnaturally narrow and will the wheelchair aisle chair still be able to successfully and more importantly still with dignity load we the dis and otherwise abled onto the plane?

comeone delta if you cannot make money with the plnes you have the solution is more planes nt loading us like cattle into seats so small eating while seated could be cause for dangerous inflation inflight!( the last part was sarcasm)


Airplane Travel | Boarding the Airplane | At The Airport | Airline Information

People with disabilities can board an airplane before general boarding. Call the airline prior to your day of travel so the airline can be prepared to offer assistance and/or assistive devices you may need to help in boarding the plane.

Airline's aisle chairAisle Chair A common assistive device used to help people with mobility limitations board the plane is an aisle chair. The aisle chair, pictured on the left, is a specially designed wheelchair capable of fitting down the narrow aisles of a plane. The aisle chair has multiple straps used to secure someone to the narrow chair. Trained personnel should be available to help a person transfer from the wheelchair to the aisle chair and from the aisle chair to the plane seat. Again, make sure to alert the airline ahead of time that you need assistance and an aisle chair to board the plane. If you have experienced problems with boarding please visit thecomplaints page.
The pictures below demonstrate the use of an aisle chair to board an aircraft.

I am a disabled woman who through no fault of my own has wheels under my ass. I rely on the decency and common sense of local, state and federal goverments, as well as the retail community to abide by the disabled access laws and provide adequate ramps, disabled toilets, and not use them as store rooms or broom closets. This blog exists to find the offenders and out them, inform them, and report them if necessary and shame them into doing the right thing when all else fails.
