Those seats look really comfortable. For a 20 minute flight.

I just want armrests that go all the way to the seat.

Having no seat pockets should come in real handy, the first time a passenger franticly reaches for the air sickness bag that isn't there.

Hope those seats can be easily hosed clean.

Well, at least that's better than this design:

Why not just rack us and stack us?  Perhaps a mandatory mild sedative with your preflight drink and they could just wheel us onboard.

The new "Pure Skies" concept has been created by London-based design firm PriestmanGoode.
It features dividing screens between rows, seats without pockets and a new layout for more personal space


Screens will never happen. Maintenance headache.

Tray tables barely exsit now on many planes.

More personal space? Never gonna happen.

And the whole plug your phone into their highly secure system? Pass.

You're still sitting too close to the person next to you.  So what if there's a barrier between you and the person behind you when there's a stranger elbowing you every 10 seconds with their filthy covid arm that's been God knows where.

Still have people shoulder to shoulder. Lexan cubicle seats with independent air supplies.

I note that the seat backs do not recline.  This might make all the other inconveniences worth it.

Isn't vomiting in airplanes something from the 1970s? I haven't encountered it in a long time.

The seats looks horribly uncomfortable and still have seats next to each other.

I'd like to see more like this.  Single person pods, actual legroom, and you could put plexiglass from the top of the pod to the ceiling.  I guess you could have some multi-person pods for families.  Pods should be the future of flying, not strip club lights.

And how much would a ticket cost?

I've been very fortunate....I have flown first class on British Airways and Emirates....and I could only afford to do that because I paid with airline miles.

Great idea!  Now do another, but with some sort of realistic budget.

Any company that designs airline seating should be required by law to user test it. Preferably with the CEO and board spending a minimum of 4 hours in the coach seats.

I'd pay extra if I could fly laying down like that, even if it meant we were all stacked in boxes.

"Serving suggestion*"

*actual service consists of 8 oz bottle of water and impossible-to-open bag containing two and a half almonds

This configuration clearly prevents the person in front of you from reclining.
