This Is the Future of Air Travel

Aviointeriors, an Italian design firm, unveiled its vision for a jetliner interior with increased passenger capacity. Passengers will be able to fit into a smaller space:

They'd sit at an angle with no more than 23 inches between their perch and the seat in front of them — a design that could appeal to low-cost airlines that have floated the idea of offering passengers standing-room tickets on short flights.[...]

"We feel extremely confident that this concept will ... have great appeal to airlines for economic purposes," says Dominique Menoud, director general of Aviointeriors Group.

It may have appeal with airlines, but what about their passengers (or ex-passengers who decide to switch to a different airline)?

There's no way this position can be comfortable!

Also how are kids, the elderly, people who are very short, people who are disabled (I'm a wheelchair user myself who wouldn't last 2 seconds in a seat like this (if I could even get in it) before I smashed headfirst into the seat ahead of me (should I be thankful it's really close?) and sliding onto the floor...

I think the "designers" and head of any airlines interested should be made to do a couple of long-haul flights in these "seats"! I bet they wouldn't make it through the first couple of hours...

Look at how skinny that model is (compared to the cows I normally sit next to.) and she's ALREADY taking up both armrests.

The airlines need to stop trying to fit more people in less space, and start putting 2 armrests on EACH seat, instead of 4 armrests for 3 seats.

As for kissing the seat in front of me, that's absurd as well.
