Some 10 + years ago airlines in Europe were struggling in getting their seat configuration (ratio eco/biz class) sorted out. Short haul flights, depending on the destination, had to have seat configuration altered (some times several times in a single day) so the seat manufacturers came up with a solution where the entire aircraft was configured with 3 seat eco for each row. The trick to have some biz class seats was solved by "squeezing" the middle seat together hence widen the 2 seats each at the window and aisle. I've seen cabin attendants doing this on several occasions and was always impressed how efficient this works. Now if we all would be booking according to the preferred width of our seat (the wider the more expensive obviously), then airlines would be able to have their aircraft flexible enough to accommodate all our needs.
