The New Way to Fly…

- By Bossip Staff

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?

    I need a back on my seat….especially for long flights. Too claustrophobic for me.

  • I'm Just Me: KEEPING IT REAL SINCE 1983

    Oh I do see a back now.

    Well it might not be too bad for local commuter flights.

    Will we still have to pay extra for our bags?

    SOUTHWEST STAND UP!

  • Speaking the truth...

    Doesn’t look very comfortable, but if it was for an hour or less, I could do it.

  • eveinthegarden

    No thanks. Im antisocial az hell on planes. I dont want to talk to the person sitting next to me, let alone spend it looking at some stranger or have them staring at me while Im sleep.

  • Robert

    That ain’t saving anyone money, because the airlines will jack the price up.

  • http://www.freewebs.com/bestsexever redcora

  • always knew

    **Save up and buy a plane**

    this is getting too crazy, who flies with a backpack???

  • LBCER

    That is the stupidest idea ever. Who wants to looks at strangers and their screaming chaps for two hours plus?

  • crazypants

    I can already fly to Europe or the West Coast for $100-200 – that’s cheap enough.

    How about preserving a little dignity and comfort when we fly?

    There’s probably some broke or cheap SOB who’ll stand on his head for 6hrs if it meant that they’d fly for $10, but that shouldn’t be the standard of comfort that the rest of us should be subjected to.

    An airline that offered only spacious seats and full amenities for a premium (like 50% more on avg price per tkt) would get my and plenty of other people’s money.

  • deesac

    Does not look comfortable to me. And how are you suppose to get some head now on the plane sitting like this, Yaah no waaay!!
