Sen. Schatz speaking up for keeping leg space on planes

Passengers might get to keep their leg room during flights.

Wednesday the U.S. Senate passed legislation preventing airlines from cutting down seats and legroom space on its planes. The Federal Aviation Administration will also work to mandate a minimum seat size for all airlines in the country.

Hawaii U.S. Senator Brian Schatz advocated for the measure — sending out a statement Wednesday. It read, “Hawaii travelers are tired of getting less and less space for their hard earned money. This bill — which will soon be law — gives the FAA the authority to step in and say enough is enough.”
