And I think I can safely say that airplanes, especially the commuter jet I rode in from Montgomery to Atlanta, are designed for 1906 man, not 2006 me (certainly, at least, not for my 6’2″+ and 210 lbs).

    Yep. I flew back from Chicago on a 737 Monday and had similar thoughts. The overall flying experience is so miserable that I’m generally willing to drive unless it’s more than, say, a 7 hour drive each way. And even then if it’s a long enough stay.
