United Airlines has announced plans to install slimmer seats to fit more passengers.

Flying coach is rarely comfortable.

But for coach passengers on United Airlines it's going to be even more cramped.

The airline says it's going to retrofit 152 of its planes with slim line seats which will reduce the seat size from 18 inches to 17 inches.

United says the change will allow for six extra seats in the cabin. The airline says 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.

The seat changes are expected in the next year.

Other major airlines have also announced plans to install slimmer seats to fit more passengers on board.
