Prius drivers are the worst. Bad at checking blind spots, timid about passing (and yet never leave enough passing room) and then they think they're doing the world a favor and everyone else is insufficiently grateful.

If the guy in the photo sat with his legs together, the people standing would be tripping over his knees. If your pants inseam is shorter than 34 inches you are not qualified to comment on or diagnose manspreading.

If presented with the option I will add $30 to an OAK-SEA fare to be seated in a row with 3 inches more legroom. In dollars-per-inch terms, this is WAY more than the break-even that @2 suggests.
If you took out three seats on the left side of a 737 in back of the exit row, spreading the remaining seats out equally, you could offer 3 inches to 27 passengers and you would break even if you got only 12% higher ticket price in that section.
It takes a lot more than 12% for any of my existing options (like buying into the A group to snag an exit row seat on Southwest.)

I have never used the left hand deathlane. Always the right hand traffic lane or the bus lane, where you would expect a bike to be.
