July 29. Congress ordered the Federal Aviation Administration to establish minimum dimensions for airplane seats within a year when the agency’s funding was renewed in October 2018.
But this week the agency will take a step toward creating a new seat size regulation. The FAA is announcing an advanced notice of proposed rulemaking – a signal flare to interested members of the public that the agency is considering implementing that minimum size for airplane seats after all.
The notice will open a 90-day comment period during which the FAA will solicit feedback on possible airplane seat size standards.
