It’s important to note that though the range of seat widths and pitches has increased, the size of an average seat is in fact shrinking. WestJet’s Boeing 767-300ER (76W) seats give passengers the most space, with a pitch of 38 inches and a 20-inch seat width, while United’s Boeing 737-900 (739) V4 seats have a measly pitch of 30-31 inches and a 16 to 17-inch seat width. Other offenders of cramped 16-inch-wide seats are ANA’s Boeing 777-200ER (772) Three Class and Turkish Airline’s Boeing 737-800 (738) V1 and Boeing 737-800 (738) V2 .
New York's MTA initially refused to display the ads in the New York City Subway system.  The authority's decision was overturned in July 2012, when Judge Paul A. Engelmayer of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York ruled that the ad was protected speech under the First Amendment , and that the MTA's actions were unconstitutional .    The judge held in a 35-page opinion that the rejected ad was "not only protected speech — it is core political speech ... [which as such] is afforded the highest level of protection under the First Amendment."
