I cringe at the thought of writing yet another news item about the airline industry, but this one is just too good to pass up.
According to Travel Weekly, the Italian manufacturer Aviointeriors has finally done it—they have created and patented a stand-up seat for airlines that, they say, are getting “strong interest” from carriers around the world.
The seats would force passengers to half-sit, half-lean with their feet on the floor. The distance between the front of the seat and the back of the next row would only be 23 inches.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for innovation—and apparently these seats would be offered to passengers at a discounted price. But still, I don’t think I’d fly in this seat for free.
What do you think?
Bis bald, friends!
