Mr. Ahmed said he traveled often for work and valued sleep on flights. “Looking at how many hours I’ve spent in the last six months alone flying, it’s been 183 hours inside a plane,” he said. Japan Airlines’ seating feature won’t be visible to all travelers. The child icons will not be displayed in a number of situations, including when seats are booked as part of a tour or through award tickets, or when seats are selected through other travel websites, the site said. Child icons may also not be accurately displayed if there is a change in aircraft, the site added.

A United Airlines airplane takes off at San Francisco International Airport. Gary Hershorn | Corbis News | Getty Images United Airlines is trying to recruit pilots early in their training as the second-biggest U.S. carrier faces an impending shortage as half of its aviators approach retirement. The airline on Thursday said it would offer conditional job offers to candidates who apply to a special program as they build experience during their training and early-career experience at small airlines.

Being wedged into an uncomfortable seat is a trade-off many passengers accept in return for cheaper air travel. But what happens in an emergency when they have to bolt out of that tight seat and evacuate the plane in the 90 seconds mandated by the Federal Aviation Administration? That scenario has prompted Democratic Congressman Steve Cohen of Tennessee to propose the SEAT -- or Safe Egress in Air Travel -- Act, which would require the FAA to establish minimum airplane seat sizes and distances between rows to enable flyers to evacuate planes safely if the need arises. SEAT, which passed the House of Representatives with bipartisan support in May, wasn't initiated with passenger comfort in mind, although it could make flying more enjoyable for the more than 2.5 million Americans who travel by air each day. And it's only a small step toward loosening the grip on the tight accommodations travelers endure aloft.
