7:08 am
claim russian planes did so twice in october. president obama spoke by telephone with the turkish president and both he and nato called the calm. >> this points to a ongoing problem with the russian operations, in the sense that they are operating very close to a turkish border. >> reporter: russia and turkey are on opposite sides of the syrian civil war. turkey, like its ally, the u.s. backs the syrian rebels while russia supports the syrian regime and, in september, began launching air strikes. moscow claims to be targeting isis. but the u.s. says it's also hit so-called moderate rebels in order to prop up the syrian dictator bashar al assad. this incident shows just how dangerous syrian air space has become with the syrian rooemegime
7:09 am
and its allies and russia all launching air strikes. french president hollande will meet this afternoon with german chance i don't remember angel merkel. tomorrow, he will talk with italian prime minister. then he will fly to moscow to meet with russian president putin. all of this follows hollande's meetings in the white house on tuesday. chip reid good morning. >> reporter: good morning. president obama said the u.s. and france are united in the goal of the eradicating isis and critics saying he is not doing enough in syria. the president suggested that new plans are in the works. >> this barbaric terrorist group and its murderous ideologies poses serious threats to all of us. >> reporter: president obama said before the attacks in s,pari he was working on new
7:10 am
proposals to counter i circumstances. >> -- isis. >> i had put together my national security forces and accelerate in advance the pressure we can place on isis. and we intend to execute on those plans. >> reporter: but he provided no details. tomorrow president hollande meets face-to-face in russia with vladimir putin who met with another world leader who supports keeping syrian president assad in power. that kind of behavior has the obama administration and other coalition governments skeptical about russia's involvement in the fight against isis. >> russia right now is a coalition of two -- iran and russia -- supporting assad. >> reporter: president hollande says he will tell the troops they can work with russia if they take out isis and commit to the coalition's shared goals of
7:11 am
removing assad from power. >> them cooperating would be enormously helpful in bringing about a resolution to the civil war in syria and allow us all to refocus our attention to isis. >> reporter: after that shootdown of a russian jet by turkey the chances to get russia to work with the isis coalition is each now more remote. french police are search heing for a new sfk in the terrorist attacks. mohamed abrini was caught on video with abdeslam. debora patta is in brussels with more. >> reporter: the attempt to bring some sense of normalcy to brussels today but they remain on the highest possible alert for a terrorist attack. behind me it is packed with school students guarded by

7:13 am
freeing hostages. the prosecutor also revealed that abaaoud, together with another man, were planning a suicide bomb attack at a busy business district in paris. abaaoud was killed in the french raid last week in st. denis. there is a new addition to europe's most wanted list. 30-year-old mohamed abrini was seen traveling with abdeslam two days before the mass killings in this black car caught on a surveillance camera and his dna was found on one of the cars used in the attack. so belgian are now hunting two of the terror suspects and they still have the additional pressure to rout out a terror cell they believe are plotting terrorist-like attacks here in brussels. details this morning about the american air strike that destroyed a hospital in afghanistan last month. according to military officials briefed on the pentagon
7:14 am
investigation, the inadvertent strike was a result of human and technical errors. 30 people at the doctors without borders hospital in kunduz were killed. most were patients and doctors. u.s. forces were targeting a nearby building believed to be a taliban base but faulty equipment on the u.s. war plane and miscommunication with u.s. forces on the ground resulted in the attack on the hospital. new presidential poll this morning shows that hillary clinton with a nine-point lead over bernie sanders in iowa. the quinnipiac university survey finds that sanders is considered more honest and trustworthy, but likely democratic caucus voters think clinton still has the best chance to win the general election. the republican front-runner donald trump, sill says muslims in new jersey celebrated the 9/11 attacks in new jersey. nancy cordes is in washington with the newest reaction. nancy, good morning.
7:15 am
>> reporter: good morning. it's not just the fact checkers. now donald trump's republican opponents who say his 9/11 claims are a fantasy. and they are using terms to describe him we haven't heard in modern americanq& politics. >> good evening. isn't he the best? he will be the best president ever! >> reporter: for the first time, donald trump's wife joined him at a campaign even. >> milani am i a nice person? my wife says yes. >> reporter: all of the outside criticism hasn't chased trump and if anything he had more grandiose last night. >> you are the first guy that really predicted terrorism. i said that in the same book if i can feel it. >> reporter: trump's republican rivals are disputing his tale of thousands of muslims celebrating
7:16 am
in new jersey the day the twin tours fell. chris christie is new jersey's governor. >> if that had happened i would recall it and do i don't. >> that would would be on television. that would have been recorded. this is just wrong. >> reporter: ohio governor john kasich released an ad calling trump's rhetoric dangerous. advisers to jeb bush went even further, calling trump's proposals for documenting american muslims fascist but none of it has hurt his poll numbers. a recent quinnipiac poll shows him leading in iowa and ted cruz is two points behind. >> the energy in iowa is nothing short of breath taking. >> reporter: support for cruz in iowa has doubled in just the past four weeks. our cbs news battleground tracker showed a similar surge. trump even joked recently that he hasn't attacked cruz yet but might have to go to war with him, if cruz gets too close in the polls.

♪ aaa this morning, suggests the number of people flying for thanksgiving will climb to 3.6 million. that's not the only reason you may discover that the planes are feeling a little more cramped these days. kris van cleave is at the reagan national airport outside of washington for with the battle for the space and the sky.
7:44 am
>> reporter: when people get on board the aircraft they might feel crowded and it's not your imagination. the airlines have worked to squeeze in extra rows of seats and that means, over time the average space between those rows has fallen from about 35 inches here. on average, down about 4 inches and in some case shrunk by 6 inches and giving you this much space when you fly. this mg fire on a british airlines 777. beyond, that the agency does not set limits on how close rows of seats can be but much of its own research is done with seats 31 inches apart. that is the spacing for several of the country's biggest carriers. jetblue and allegiant and frontier offer the least with as little as 28 inches of space and seats that don't even recline. the amount of room you actually have to sit on? the width of your seat may have
7:45 am

7:46 am
it makes more room in the aisle. the staggered layout also allows the seats to be bigger, while not taking up additional seat on the plane. >> you're not up here jockeying for elbow space. you're back here and have an extra two-inch width here and still a standard seat and so is this but those passengers have more space because they are not elbow-to-elbow, arm-to-arm side-by-side. >> reporter: the trade association that represents the airline says the seats are safe and the faa should leave it up to the market to determine how much space customers want. it's worth pointing out that those super discount carriers that offer the least space and even when the seats don't recline are the most profitable in the business. >> i do. it's a little tight sitting that close to everybody. >> nobody likes to be closed up on the airplane. nobody does. when they recline the seat and cuts off your calculation, not good. proof of what is happening in the world. >> there in a plane called coach.
