Imagine your airplane flight with 40% more people than today's already crammed cabin...
(Pretty unimaginable right?)
Well check out these new airline seats called Skyriders, marketed by Italian company Aviointeriors.
The catch is that the Skyrider seats are only 23 inches narrow and passengers are expected to be in this crazy, half-sitting, half-standing "ergonomic" position for up to 2 hour flights.
The company's advice to larger size people: "You have to lose some weight!"
This certainly doesn't seem like a very customer-centric attitude, nor a very practical way to fly, no matter how much their spokesperson tries to "sell us the Brooklyn Bridge" on this one.
GONG! Back to the drawing board on this "innovation."
