UK Judge: Air travellers 'need 34-inch legroom'

Air travellers 'need 34-inch legroom'

Air passengers should have at least 34 inches (86cm) of legroom on long-haul flights, a judge said yesterday after a businessman won compensation for sitting in a "straitjacket" seat on a holiday jet.

JMC, one of Britain's largest tour operators, was told by Judge Gareth Edwards QC that its treatment of passengers by forcing them to sit in a space of 29 inches (73cm) during an eight-hour flight was "intolerable".

The remarks were made as the judge upheld a compensation award made to Brian Horan, a company director, for his journey with JMC from Manchester to the Canadian ski resort of Calgary last year.
