AIRLINE SEATS AN EVEN TIGHTER FIT AS PASSENGERS BECOME BROADER By Arifa Akbar
Passengers are finding airline seats an increasingly tight squeeze, a survey found yesterday.
Two-thirds of men are too broad-shouldered for their neighbours\' liking in the smaller plane seats, which are 16in wide.
Women, meanwhile, have their own size problems, having put on an average of 1.5in around the hips between 1951 and 2002 - now measuring 40.5in - and having become broader across the shoulders, according to the research by First Choice holiday company.
The findings, which were released during an Association of British Travel Agents\' convention, which analysed data from the national sizing survey SizeUK, also showed that one in seven women would feel too broad-shouldered in the narrowest seats, while about one third of male passengers would feel cramped in airline seats that are 17inwide.

Pilots are falling asleep at the wheel
Some American airline pilots are so tired that they’re falling asleep at the controls – and the British pilot’s union has warned that if proposed EU regulations are approved, our flyers could face exhaustion too.

An investigation by a Dallas television station found that many pilots on internal US routes confessed to napping during flights. One reported falling asleep immediately after takeoff, and being woken by air-traffic control only when he reached cruising altitude. “I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, we’re already up here,” he said. “The captain and I were asleep for the whole time about four or five minutes, and that’s a high-workload time of flight.”

Some tips for landing a comfortable long-haul flight
Frequent Traveler Q&A Roger Collis
I normally travel business class between Tokyo and Zurich on Swiss, but I am not convinced that they offer the best service, either with the sleeper beds available, or the food. I\'d be prepared to travel via Paris, Frankfurt or London if the service was superior. What do you recommend? Ray Wilkinson, Tokyo
A quick look at the OAG Executive Flight Guide shows several options: via London to Geneva (and then by train from the airport to Zurich) with British Airways; via London with BA, All Nippon, Japan Airlines, or Virgin Atlantic; via Frankfurt with Lufthansa/All Nippon (code share), or Japan Airlines; or via Paris with Japan Airlines or Air France. I would first try BA or Virgin, both of which have fully flat sleeper seats in business class - more comfortable, by all accounts, than Swiss or Lufthansa (although Lufthansa claims that 65 percent of its fleet is equipped with 9- degree-angled "lie-flat" seats) Be aware that the latest sleeper seats may not always be available on every flight and on every type of aircraft as airlines gradually install them.
