This was bizarre. Yesterday, after taking my assigned seat 5F on a Mesaba ARJ at MSP, the flight attendant told me that, due to weight and balance issues, I and another guy in my row had to move back. The plane was about 50 percent full. Can this be? Or was it that these seats are directly behind business class and they didn't want us to see what was served?
Seat 5F, by the way, is an economy-sized seat, but in a 2x2 row (as opposed to 2X3) and it had a footrest, like in business class. And, now that I think about it, they didn't ask passengers in row 5 to move on the flight to MSP. Any help would be appreciated.
