Why pretend?  We both know perfectly well what this is about.  You want me to have an abortion.

I'm sitting in the airport waiting to get on a plane so I'm getting a kick, etc.

I am sure. And don't call me serious.

Looks like it would double as a mini fence to keep out the fat rolls

It's a different kind of armrest altogether.

I can't imagine airline executives allowing something like this on their aircraft.  Not only would it make people less uncomfortable, leaving it out would allow you to squeeze a couple more people on a flight.

What do you make of this?

\seriously, you have five days to get this on my plane to NC.  Chop-chop.

Looks like a fence to keep the fatty from flowing over.

I'd settle for a centre seat built for one.

I want to fly on the aircraft the airlines use for their commercials -- the narrowbodies with the three-foot-wide single aisles, the eight-foot ceilings and fifty-inch pitch in cattle class

Awesome, now we can have short, arrogant, 'go getters' forcefully placing their claim on the 'upper' rest while someone much taller is relegated to the lower rest.

You know, like 5'4" grandmothers in Exit Rows.

Yep.  And where all the flyers have petite and narrow frames such that there's actual space between people sitting in adjacent seats.

As a business traveler in coach you don't know how many times I've had fatty mc farkface grab the armrest like it's his birthright.

Seriously dude, either buy the aisle seat or the window seat or die in a fire. Don't shove your big farking ass down in the center and make both sides of you miserable for 3 hours.

Off topic to the article at hand, but if CNN ever removes their full page article feature, I'm never reading one again. The last page is literally one sentence. Fark you CNN and your click whoring.

Don't start up with that armrest zone shiat again.

I don't need anything that crazy, but I think a nice vertical wall where the armrest goes would be awesome.  You wouldn't have to see the person next to you, and no part of the other person could extending into your seat.

It is really annoying when a fat person spills into your seat or if the person using the armrest also extend their arm into your seat.

Charter aircraft tend to cost thousands of dollars an hour.  I'm not THAT desperate, yet.

I will absolutely spring for first class next time I fly cross country.  I'm just to old to hack it in coach anymore.

I thought the rule was the person in the middle seat gets the armrest. Their life already sucks enough as it is. Not sure what to do in the case of four across seating. That center armrest is the saddest place on the plane.

This.

Ya know where you can both use the armrest?  First class.  I got bumped up to first class once.  It was amazing.

you do realize they're two different classes, right? To be fair, business class is usually like that
 
2014-05-04 01:38:51 PM
This is why I always travel first class. The downside is that I travel less, as I am not rich.

/travel should be stress-free
