Human Interest Stories

We’ve all been crammed into an airplane before, as we lug our luggage over strangers feet. And if airplanes weren’t already uncomfortable for most, get ready to have more passengers. Skyrider 2.0 is the latest way to fly.

The Skyrider 2.0 is a stand-up airline seat that was revealed in Germany last week at the Airliners Interiors Expo. The seat allows for 20% more passengers in the cabin, and limits your legroom from 28 inches (on most airlines) to 23 inches.

In 2010, a different version of the “standing saddle seat” was released to market, but never installed in any airline.

What do you think, would you fly in an airplane with this seat?
