And make you claustrophobic because you can't see more than five feet in any direction except across your aisle.

Not to mention the weight issue of those lengthy arms, and the safety issue of evacuating an aircraft full of suddenly-opened TVs, half of which cracked passengers on the head, and all of which are preventing an evacuation past a blocked aisle.

Listen up, and listen good. These are a nonsensical pipe dream, and they will *never* happen.

That's the fantasy, subby. I think the reality will be more like this:

The reality about flying conditions is that it has gone to the lowest common denominator because the public demanded it.  As long as people scour the internet looking for ways to save $5 on a flight, airlines will scour their process looking for ways to reduce ticket prices by $5.  If you want nice ass planes, then you would have to pay for them.  Most people won't.  You can always charter a jet.

Mesh seat - gets rid of the flotation aid cushion and can't easily be replaced as it is fixed to the frame - not happening

Personal Storage - reduces the size of total storage by adding all the unnecessary walls. - Not going to happen

Higher weight - aforementioned walls and all the additional mechanisms - not going to happen

Larger size - 16% less asses in seats - not going to happen

Upsell apps - hells yeah

Also it looks like he configured everything to fly in a plane with a square cross section, instead of a tube like every plane out there.

Great job kid!

A comfortable economy class is not in the interest of airlines. If economy is too comfortable, less people will pay for business class seats, and that's the profit is made.

More likely, they'll adopt the parts of the design that help minimize floorspace -- the mesh instead of padding, maybe an alternative for screen and table mounting -- and apply them to squeeze even more seats into economy. And then they'll shave another 5% off the existing space, because fark you, and by the way fares are going up 10% for our "new comfort seating".

Anyone who says those seats are as comfortable as first class has never flown first class (I mean real first class, not Houston to Omaha first class.

Wow. Now I can have a cramped seat and something hanging in front of my face, awesome.

I have vivid memories of flying from Frankfort, Germany to NYC. via Shannon, via Goose Bay in 1962 aboard a TWA Constellation. The seats were large and plush, plus I got to see the cockpit in action. Something like that wouldn't be allowed today. My next flight experience was in 1985 aboard a Piedmont 737 from Cincinnati to Denver. I realized how much air travel had come to resemble a flying Greyhound bus in the ensuing 23 years.

Bomb Head Mohammed: SnarfVader: Somebody actually thinks the airlines care about passenger comfort? That's cute.

Ah Americans.  Always the victims despite the massive consumer surplus they enjoy.  Always willing to extoll the virtues of the free market except when they're acting like whiny little girls.

They don't actually look anything at all like Borg regeneration pods. You don't sit down in a Borg regeneration pod, to begin with.

I've actually wondered why they DON'T do that. If I could lay down my entire flight I'd be a happy camper. Much easier to sleep...


I think bhcompy was referring to the uh, accoutrements, not the accommodations...

Ya, nicer seating would be great but I'd rather they work on a way to keep the crying kids and annoying assholes away from me.
