U.S. government ordered to solve 'Case of the Incredible Shrinking Airline Seat'By David Shepardson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. aviation authorities were ordered back to the drawing board on Friday to solve what a federal appeals judge called "The Case of the Incredible Shrinking Airline Seat." Judge Patricia Millett told the Federal Aviation Administration to take another look at an advocacy group's assertion that shrinking airline seats are imperiling passenger safety. The judge rejected the FAA's argument that seat size was unimportant to getting off the plane in an emergency. All three judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit agreed the FAA must conduct a new review of the request for regulations setting a minimum airline seat size, but Judge Judith Rogers dissented from part of the court's rationale.
