Poll: Will extra inch of legroom on Alaska Airlines make a difference?

Newly designed seats in nearly two dozen of Alaska Airlines’ new Boeing 737 planes will give passengers an extra inch of legroom, the airline announced today.

Slimmer seatbacks and bottoms account for the extra room in the 737-900ER jets, the airline says in a news release. The 22  planes are scheduled to be delivered beginning this fall through 2014.

So … how much difference do you think that extra inch will make in your comfort level?

Take our poll.
