Seems like some Airlines don’t think that Economy class seats are small enough and now they want to ‘squeeze’ more people in the cabins.
One of the largest airline seats producer, Zodiac Seats France, applied for a patent called Economy Class Cabin Hexagon to change the position of seats so it can fit more people.
Basically, in a row of three seats there will be one facing the back of the airplane while two will be facing forward. You will be also somehow facing the passenger on your side for the whole trip as well.
With this new design, Airlines will be able to fit 80 more passengers to the economy class section.
Looks like in a near future, it will be even more expensive for you to afford ‘comfort‘. What you think about this?
