    A new nightmarish seating may be happening in the future, there would be 11 seats per row and would alternate forward-facing and rear-facing seating. There would be very little room and basically passengers' arms and hands would be touching thighs, and looking at your fellow passengers in the eyesicon_rolleyes.gif. Believe judging by the type of people who are on planes, you won’t like the sight or the touching, the flight would not be full of Real Jock members with hot guysicon_lol.gificon_twisted.gif.

    Only good news is that the hexagon is only a patent so the design may not actually happen, but if it does and spreads to most airlines, people would be traveling overseas by boat instead.

    I saw this story going around. I'm disgusted to see that the airlines are still pursuing this as their magic bullet for higher profits. Delta's is for narrower middle seats and charge more for the ever-so-slightly wider seats at the window and aisle. Where's real innovation??

    But now...
    "Realjock Airlines"! I like the sound of that!

    If this happens, they better make cocktails free and unlimited. icon_evil.gif

    I suspect it won't happen right away if ever. The US population in general is too fat.

    They could charge by weight and circumference if they want to. That would be an incentive for some.

    I saw this as well in Flipboard,and it might be patented but will not take flight. As much as airlines want to make profits they also catered to the consumer, I do not see anyone putting themselves through this ordeal - they will go to other carriers that will not offer such contraption. Not every line will retrofit for this design, if it happens.

    A bunch of drunks sitting in close proximity to each other. Yeah, that'll be a pleasant flight!

    Hmmm, RealJock airlines? Would probably need a gym on the upper deck with steam room for long flights. icon_razz.gif. But I'd fly it!

    i will bet that the bean counters and others at my company are absolutely SALIVATING at the thought of this. anything for a buck. and do not expect cocktails or anything for free. hell, next week i expect a tablet update that we are going to charge for cabin air.
