Because the capacity and ability is there for people not to have to stand, it's just not being used. I understand it's normal to stand on a rush hour commute across the world, but usually that's because the system is running to capacity, all trains are being used, the sidings and depots are empty except for units under maintenance- but regardless the amount of people demanding service means that there is still crush condition. Here we are artificially imposing crush on ourselves when there is no need, there is spare capacity in the form of extra carriages that is just not being used. That's not acceptable.
