Save for web allows you to to choose the compression on a scale from 1-100 whereas the save as function is 1-12 only. Smaller steps mean that you can compress the picture so that it is just below 1MB. Save for web also works a bit different, it strips the EXIF for example.

I personally think that the compostion of a photo should be done through the viewfinder of the camera and not in postprocessing. With all common DSLRs having a ~ 3:2 aspect ratio, a 16:9 allowance on airliners would mean heavy crops where large parts of the actual photos are cut away.
