Imagine your airplane flight with 40% more people than today’s already crammed cabin…

(Pretty unimaginable right?)

Well check out these new airline seats called Skyriders, marketed by Italian company Aviointeriors.

The catch is that the Skyrider seats are only 23 inches narrow and passengers are expected to be in this crazy, half-sitting, half-standing “ergonomic” position for up to 2 hour flights.

The company’s advice to larger size people: “You have to lose some weight!”

This certainly doesn’t seem like a very customer-centric attitude, nor a very practical way to fly, no matter how much their spokesperson tries to “sell us the Brooklyn Bridge” on this one.

GONG! Back to the drawing board on this “innovation.”

I’d give this an A- on creativity, but a C- for practicality (especially in terms of creature comfort) — my butt hurts just looking at that seat. 🙂

Nevertheless, I appreciate the need to do more with less, and to create eco-friendly vehicles for the 21st century.

I’d like to see Toyota and Chrysler convert their minivans into something with the functionality that this rickshaw was trying to get at.

Who knows if Comanns is on to something with this?
