I have ridden in some small planes that have two seats on one side and one on the other. If you took a standard 6 seat across airplane and made part of it a five seater (three on one side and two on the other). It would mean that you would have to increase the cost per seat by 20% to get the same total revenue. I'd pay 20% extra, and the plane would be a little lighter from losing one passenger and his luggage, which would save the airline a little fuel.
