Have you heard about this? A company has come up with a new design for airline seats to make them a bit more comfortable. The idea behind the design is that the seats are staggered, which allows the sitter to lean to the side whilst sleeping, in addition to providing a modicum of privacy from the person sitting next to you. This isn't mentioned in the article, but it looks like there is a bar for the feet to rest on. I hope this is the case, I am always trying to squish my feet up on to the seat for more comfort.
The only drawback to the design is that the seats don't lean back. However, the designer reasons that they don't need to lean back, since most people lean to the side to sleep on planes, and additionally, your space isn't invaded by the person sitting in front of you. The new design is better for the airlines, as it allows for more seats to be crammed on to a plane. (You didn't think that was possible, did you?)
What do you think? I'm excited to try one out.
