The definitive rules regarding airplane armrests


"The reasons are not arbitrary, but rather based on sound, unyielding logic and every human’s own innate sense of basic decency."  Explained at Jalopnik.

  1. I sit on the aisle if I can, but one of the risks is getting your outside kneecap removed by a passing beverage cart.

  2. "innate sense of basic decency." As with common sense, basic decency is dwindling.

    Need some defintive rules for the middle seats in a wide body aircraft...

    1. By niddle seats, I was referring to the set of 4 seats in the middle of an airbus, a 747, or a 777

    2. That's where you put the screaming toddlers.

  3. Both armrests for the middle seats are the bonus one gets for getting stuck in the centre. They are the least desirable seats.

  4. Another way to solve the problem is for airlines to stop thinking of humans as sardines.

  5. The illustration is very generous in its seat width; there are usually about 4 inches (10 cm) less between the seats. This means you sit almost shoulder to shoulder and if arms are relaxed, the two people sitting next to each other are often touching upper arms or elbows. During the flight Mr Window has to lean to the window, Mr. Aisle leans towards the aisle, and Mr Center is stuck in a scrunch mode. Airlines, please give us wider seats!
