Delta, CEO, Scott Mccartney discussed on This Morning with Gordon Deal
Forty. KTAR h Thanks for being with us welcome into Friday eve have you, ever been vacuum packed into a shrunken coach seat wishing the airline's CEO had to endure. The same discomfort Wall Street Journal travel columnist Scott McCartney asked a couple of them to do it Scott which do I thought it would. Be good to talk to each airline CEO about economy the shrinkage. In is the topic that really frustrates. Travelers and has is probably the biggest topic out there right now on on. Board airplanes and so I wanted to do it with, them in, the seat I wanted to see if they fit I'm first of all I know a couple of them are are rather tall. They're six foot three and I and I, wanted to you know, be, there with their knees up against the, seat in front of them and have them justify what what they've done to travelers so reached out to the three biggest airlines American delta and United And delta said yes American said no, and then I said but Delta's going to do, it, and they say oh. We'll do it too and in the United declined to to do it gave him several opportunities and and they declined to comment on on why they. Weren't gonna do it but the. Result was interesting interviews I think what's with both with Doug Parker of American and at bastion of delta on board airplanes sitting in the seat and and having them explain to the travelling public WI they've Strunk coach and both those guys said. They're? Okay with it, right Yeah In both said, they they do fly in in coach. Seats they did both pledge not to go any, smaller which I thought was. Significant and their attitude is if you want more room by, it they've they've spent a lot of money and work very hard to create.
