Just wait til you see this

New airline seats come only in upright and least comfortable position The SkyRider, which resembles a padded saddle, could make room for 40% more passengers per flight. It's met with skepticism at an industry expo in Long Beach. - Los Angeles Times

Re: You think airline seating is too tight as it is now?

I saw something about these the other night on the nightly news. As a non-under 6 foot and a non-under 200 lb person the seats looks uncomfortable as hell. Essentially its a freakin saddle and you're not sitting but also not standing 100%, you're just kind of suspended in midair like a roller coaster. they are saying they're only meant for 2 hr and under flights, but I know I'd be uncomfortable within 10-15 minutes in one of those contraptions haha.

At 6-3, I'm cramped with the seating as it is now. No way I would even consider flying on a plane with those seats. Totally absurd.

Are they planning on paying me to fly on planes with this configuration?

It hurts my junk just to look at that picture! Can you imagine if you hit turbulence or had a rough landing? Say good bye to the possibility of ever fathering children.

Re: You think airline seating is too tight as it is now?

This reminds me of Mr. Garrison inventing the "It".
"Well, it's better than dealing with the airlines, that's for sure"

(i'm sure someone could find a picture for it, as I seem to be technologically challenged to post it here for some reason)

That seat looks like it sucks uncomfortably. Reminds me of one of the rides at Kings Dominion, it might be the Shockwave but when I rode it pounded my ass crack (serious no homo on that one lol) to the point where I was uncomfortable walking the rest of the day. And I'm only 6'2 225 lol.

Yeah, I definitely remember it now. I completely forgot about the attendant coming over and he jammed that little wedge joint that sits between your legs right up into my nuts and every twist and turn the ride went on it was like getting punched in the 'nads and getting poked in the ass crack with a sharp stick. I loved the concept of a roller coaster where you stand up but that mofo hurt lol. And when me n my friends rode the Intimidator after that it only made it worse. The Intimidator gave me a serious case of whiplash on my neck too. KD has some good rides but i'm probably not the only taller guy who has gotten various aches and pains from their rides.
