Archie Goodwin: King Keepo: I always wondered why they didn't install mesh seats - that would give a couple of precious inches right thereGo for a ride on a C-130 Hercules or another Air Force plane with similar seating. You will understand very quickly.
0Icky0: "Compared to a normal economy class, AirGo uses only an additional 16 percent of floor space.."But they'll make that up with selling apps and shiat?Not happening.
bhcompy: Let me know when we get this and then I'll be impressed:[3.bp.blogspot.com image 301x303]

ObeliskToucher: More likely that we'll see some sort of blended wing design in the future... this design has space for 500-800 passengers (and no need to worry about sitting with any claustrophobes).[i260.photobucket.com image 450x550]
Matthew Keene: 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.[www.aviationexplorer.com image 566x442]
ObeliskToucher: (and no need to worry about sitting with any claustrophobes).
digistil: 0Icky0: Pincy: 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.There already is a way.At the front of the plane.And by front I mean $$$$$$I've seen parents bring their screaming infant into a first class BA flight, JFK to LHR (1 ticket probably around $10,000). So not even that is a sure thing.
EngineerAU: Doubt mesh backs would work either. As it is now, padded seat backs cushion you from the knees of the person behind you. Or little kids who kick your seat. Imagine how that'd feel if the seats were mesh instead.
Foxxinnia: I think they should have it so the rows face each other. One row looks to the aft of the plane, one row looks to the forward part of the plane. Bam. Twice as much leg room. Except you'll have to interlock your legs with a stranger. And you can't recline. And you'll have to look at someone right in the face the entire flight.
