The airline says it's going to retrofit 152 of its planes with slim-line seats reducing the seat size from 18 inches to 17 inches. Many customers say that's just too tight.
The change will allow for six extra seats in the cabin. United says it's passengers shouldn't notice the change, especially since leg room won't be affected. The airline also plans to equip its entire fleet with wi-fi capabilities by 2015.
