Two cartoonists recently told us humorously about how overcrowded airliners were getting

They are almost like subway cars during rush hour. In his July 10th F Minus cartoon Tony Carrillo showed the result - standing strap hangers, captioned:

 “Remember when seats on a flight weren’t just a first-class thing?”

Then on July 18th he revisited the topic with another cartoon captioned:

“The flight was a little cramped. Dustin flew free on my lap as my emotional support boyfriend.”

In his July 20th Pearls Before Swine cartoon Stephan Pastis instead showed the process (and let us imagine the result):

“Rat (the airline gate agent): Folks, I’m afraid today’s flight is oversold. The good news, though, is that we’re flying to Tokyo, where they sometimes use long sticks to cram humans into subway cars.  And, well, I’m sure you see where this is going.

Other gate agent: Let’s not tell the F.A.A. about this.

Passenger: Oof.

Another Passenger: Oh, God.

Rat: See, you all fit now.” 

You could tell a story in your presentation either way, with a visual showing process or resultant product.
