New upright airline ‘seat’ could see 20% more passengers fit into planes
The next generation of cramped airline seat could soon hit runways.
Italian seating company Avio Interiors unveiled its Skyrider 2.0, which “allows an ultra-high density in the aircraft cabin”, at this year’s Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg.
In my opinion, it might be very popular among low cost airlines such as EasyJet or RyanAir which fly only short-haul flights. No way premium airlines will adopt this technology as they are striving for satisfaction rather that a higher revenue. Also, airports might stimulate airlines to use his technology, as mostly (I know about Heathrow) airlines pay per every passenger which was in the flight (also for the use of the runway), so more passengers = greater revenue for an airport
