Airlines add seats for the obvious reason - they can sell more tickets that way. But it usually results in less leg room for passengers.
USUALLY.. An aircraft is a finite space. If you add seats you WILL lose legroom. Unless you take something else out. 737 rear galley is also the emergency exit... Those will not get smaller..Not sure they make a smaller lavatory module. That's it, I'm out of ideas... Only idiots would shrink first class. What saves the current execs at AA from doing that is THEY sit up there. Please tell me this time you'll be doing work in house or contracting out to a company that knows how to properly move and reinstall seats

People say they want more space but they're not willing to pay extra for it.
