Thumbs down New way to fly?

This doesn't look comfortable.

Quote:
Check out the new way to fly. Reports are saying that airlines may look into seating customers face to face in order to get more seating on planes. Don’t knock it til you try it, this seating could save you money.

In a new airplane design, planes may have passengers face each other in an attempt to get more seating on planes and lower ticket pricing. The new plane option would offer passengers the luxury of traditional seating which wouldn’t face another passenger but those tickets would cost more.

The new seating is said to have a 50 percent increase in seating and a 30 percent decrease in cost per seat. Design Q, which is the company that designed the new seating, doesn’t recommend the new seating for long flights that exceed an hour. Apparently, the seating is very narrow and food carts wouldn’t be able to maneuver throughout the plane.

This isn’t the first time face to face seating has been used on planes, in fact, military personnel fly in this fashion on military planes.

Even with the price being recession proof, would you pay for comfort or cut the corner to fly for less?

Imagine taking one of those anywhere upwards of 5 hours and more. Ugh.

Anything more then an hour and i'd be going crazy. It would have to be beyond dirt cheap for me to even consider it.

Ryanair is actually contemplating flights with no seats. If its cheap and a short flight I would do it for sure.

I don't wanna imagine what happens when the turbulence comes while you're on the seats.

I think for a short flight, it might be alright.

With a long flight, it can get annoying sitting side-by-side but at least you can scratch, etc in peace.

I think face-to face we'll just find new and interesting ways to annoy each other especially if there's little foot room

well at least you can stretch your legs...
i actually dont mind the new look, its better than being cramped in the window seat and not being able to move.
meh, i sleep like a baby on airplanes so this wouldnt bother me one bit, it actually looks more comfy because i would be able to stretch my legs.
they should add folding tables in front though.

Or if you're flying from Terminal 1, find a lounge with all you can drink access and get polluted before you get on the plane.

I like to get nice and sauced before I fly, but then I have to take a leak every five minutes on the plain.

i dunno about that one... i cant drink and fly... i would start panicking and get sick for sure.
whenever i'm not in control of a situation and trapped in a location, ie on a boat or 20 000 feet in the air - i cannot drink - i need to be 100% mentally prepared. not being in control mentally freaks me out.

thats why i always get sick when i visit my local dominatrix.

my bad back (scoliosis + atrophy) gives me huge problems on cramped planes. i'm 6'7" so i don't fit in a regular seat. if the person in front of me decides to put their chair back, i have to stand. it's just brutal. i always try foir bulkhead, but a bunch of 5'6" guys that got there 6 hours early due to connecting flights always seem to nab them.

anyways, i have prescribed muscle relaxants so that my back doesn't go into spasm during a long flight. combine that with a pint or two beforehand and it's snoozeville for the whole flight. my body turns to jelly and i sleep the whole way.

I like the idea of more legroom. Either way I can't fall asleep on the plane. Maybe if they bumped me up to first class I could recline the seat all the way back into a near flat position and fall asleep.
