I tried to imagine this seat in an airplane. It's a new seat...which a company wants to sell to various international and US airlines. They describe it as basically like a saddle deal...if you were riding a horse.
To some degree...you'd sit at an angle. And your legs would point downward. Naturally....there'd be less leg room to some degree, and more seats....so you could sell more at a cheaper rate.
I'm waiting for the airline that just hands you a soda and you stand as you take off....and just try to get by for an hour in this standing position. Sooner or later....it'll come.
As for this seat? I'm wondering what engineer came up with the saddle look, and what university they went to. I've got a funny feeling that you start to feel funny in this position after 15 minutes, and you have to stand for most of the trip.
