Re: Why EU air travel minimum space normative for animals and not for humans?

Don't forget: what you actually "feel" regarding seat pitch also depends on the thickness of the seat itself, it's not the measure of open space between the seats.

Going back to the point in hand though - animals haven't chosen to be shipped at all, humans (usually) have.

I really love the elegant use of colors and tastefulness. It is not over the top, and it is different. I might be wrong but I think i ...
