FORT LAUDERDALE, FL - MAY 09:  A  Spirit Airlines plane takes off at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport on May 9, 2017 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Yesterday a chaotic scene erupted at the Spirit Airlines counter after flights were canceled which led to passengers getting irate and the police had to move in to restore order. Spirit blamed the delays on its pilots, who are negotiating for a new contract.  (Photo by Joe Raedle/Getty Images)
Avoid Booking With These Airlines That Provide Very Little Legroom
Airline economy seating is typically claustrophobic, but some airlines are better than others. Alex Miller, CEO of Upgraded Points, found which airlines have the least legroom.
Miller’s study found the airline with the most legroom had 32.3 inches between seats (JetBlue), while the airline with the least legroom had only 28 inches (Spirit and Frontier).
Upgraded Points said that Spirit Airlines and Frontier Airlines ranked last because they trade legroom for the low cost of their ticket prices, which are often less than $100.
Hawaiian Airlines was second to last on the list, with 29 inches of legroom. However, the airline offers an "extra comfort" economy class ticket with an extra 5 inches of legroom.
United Airlines offers just 30.1 inches of average legroom, but like Hawaiian, you can pay for an Economy Plus ticket to get a whopping 37 inches.
