NY Sen. Schumer: FAA should require seat-size guidelines for airplanes

The issue of leg room on planes could soon be headed to Capitol Hill.

New York Senator Chuck Schumer says the FAA should require airlines to have seat-size guidelines.

He says leg room on planes used to be 35 inches, but it has now shrunk to an average of 31.

Schumer plans to introduce a seat-size guideline amendment to an FAA bill pending in Congress right now.

A vote is expected next month.
