When is the Middle the Best Seat on the Plane?

By  | 

And Frontier Airlines $29 fare sales suddenly become a lot more appealing! Frontier Airlines is installing new seats this year and one of the changes is to widen the middle seat.

Middle seats will now be 19 inches, the widest in the US and an inch more than the aisle or window. And no, you won’t have to pay more to sit in the middle seat.

And all seats will now be pre-reclined, ending the question of reclining etiquette and inflight fights. This will help offset the fact the pitch is shrinking to 28 inch.

The Conde Nast Traveler article has more details about Frontier’s upcoming plane changes.

    28 inches is miserable.

    I’m 6’2″. A 19 inch wide seat does not matter if the pitch is 28″. I will avoid Frontier as avidly as I avoid Spirit. 28 pitch is inhumane, ‘slimline, pre-reclined’ and all.
