American Adding Seats On Many Planes

Posted: Updated:

DALLAS (AP) - American Airlines announced it expects to add more seats to some of its planes, which could mean less leg room for passengers.

The airline's parent company, AMR Corp., disclosed the move in a regulatory filing Wednesday.

Airline Vice President Lauri Curtis said American officials expect to add seats on Boeing 737 and McDonnell Douglas MD-80 jets. But she said they haven't decided how many seats and how that will affect American's revenue.

Airlines add seats for the obvious reason — they can sell more tickets that way. But it usually results in less leg room for passengers.
