Seabrook, NH, December 2014: Private Jet Services (PJS), a worldwide private aviation consulting firm, has released a new infographic detailing the history and evolution of the aviation industry and the decline of comfort in commercial air travel.

PJS’s infographic highlights the trend towards increased passenger capacity on flights and the declining comfort of commercial airlines, specifically as it relates to seat size and legroom.

This year, there was a staggering 4”less of legroom than on most airlines in 1980.

In 1980 the average economy seat width was 18.5”, in 2014 it was just 17”.

In 1968, 45.9% of seats were filled on commercial flights, in 2014 that number increased to 84%.

The graphic continues with a timeline detailing the biggest events in aviation history from the Wright Brothers first achieving sustained flight, to the first private jet introduced in 1964 and beyond.

“It’s truly remarkable how far aviation has come in the last century. What’s even more telling about the commercial aviation industry is this increased focus on passenger capacity and ways to pump up profits, while losing focus on customer satisfaction and comfort. Our infographic shows exactly how quickly these changes are happening.” says PJS founder and CEO, Greg Raiff.
