While youre fighting for territory on the arm rest and suffering the kicks, nudges and otherwise annoying seat disturbances that come with flying commercial airlines, just think it could be worse. How much worse? Like perching on a bicycle seat worse.
Airbus submitted a patent in Europe for the seats, with have small backrests but no tray tables or headrest, reports the Los Angeles Times. And legroom? Keep dreaming.
The pared down design is an attempt to cut down on bulk, which in turn allows for more sardined passengers and ostensibly, more money.
In effect, to increase the number of cabin seats, the space allotted to each passenger must be reduced, the patent application states.

Why bother with the seat? Frances is after all the gayest nation on Earth.
Don’t give them any ideas.
Why not just a post up your butt and then you can stick the passengers in the floor like a pin cushion? Less passenger space and seats = more freight space.
I ought to patent that.
Sounds like a Southpark episode.
Boy thats an incentive to stop flying
On the plus side when your neighbor pukes it will just flow straight down to the floor and then to the back of the plane.
Bicycle seats are implicated in a five-fold increase of prostate cancer in men. This promises a windfall for the attorneys seeking damages in the future for these airline passengers using the prostate cancer inducing seating.
They’ll charge extra for it.
No bloody way.
What will they do to business or first? Stools? Throw peanuts and water?
Does anyone need to go anyplace bad enough to fly like that?
Why not just build honeycombs in the plane, sedate the passengers for the flight, and then drag them out onto the tarmac to wake up afterward. Then hose out the honeycomb and load in the next cargo of meatbags.

No one cares about prostate cancer because women can’t get it. Now, be a good sheep and buy some pink crap or Komen will claim that you hate your mother and wish she was dead.
They could simply stack people on pallets for even more revenue.
thank god i haven’t flown since 2001.
so there will be no seat cushion to capture the farts of the folks ahead of you.
they don’t show how the tray tables will come down from the person’s back.
Take the restrooms out and put um on porta-potty seats, so they can add more seats, more ticket sales.
