SkyRider Saddle-Style Airplane Seat ~ World’s Worst Idea?
Mooooo! Round-em up! Yippee-Kayay!
The world is often repulsed at the tight quarters given to calves who will one day be served up as veal in a fancy restaurant. Just looking at the cramped tight quarters purposed in the new SkyRider aircraft seat gives me anxiety, claustrophobia, a major case of the heebie-jeebies. and makes me desire to bellow like a caged calf.
Can you say airline cattle call?
“The new seats are due to be launched next week at the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas conference in Long Beach. As you can see, part of the passenger’s weight is taken on their legs, and the legs are tucked under the seat in front. Just how close are the seats? Aviointeriors says that the seat-pitch is just 23-inches. Seat-pitch is the distance between the same point on two seats, and the smallest seat-pitch on economy-class flights is around 31-inches. Even low-cost carrier Southwest has a pitch of 32-33 inches on its planes.”
What’s next? Subway type leather straps hanging from the ceiling with no seats at all?
Sound off! What do you think?
(HT to WorldHum for the story)
Makes me want to take the bus or walk everywhere. I may have to give up flying.
This is perhaps my crude mind at play, but the first thing that came to my mind was the frightful wafting of…well…farts that occur on a red-eye flight. 🙁
How horrible then it must be to perhaps be “up close and personal” with the source of said farts.
