The captain's chairs provided a wide aisle to the third, which was a surprise, with ample head, leg and arm room for adults. It actually has more leg room than in the slightly cramped second row.

Anyone who traveled to grandma's without such a system over the Christmas holidays will never know the ability of DVD technology to keep the rug...
