Crowded planes could get even more cramped.

United Airlines announced plans to install slimmer seats in some of its planes next year. The move will allow the airline to squeeze in more passengers.

Company officials said dropping the seat size from 18 to 17 inches will allow them to fit six extra seats in coach.

United said passengers should not notice the change because leg room will not be affected.
