Standing seats !

Post by atoutprix on Thu 2 Jul 2009 - 19:05

Spring Airlines, a Chinese low-cost, examines the possibility of putting "standing seats" on its A320, allowing 40 % more passengers on board. These seats would look like a bar stool !
MichaŽl O'Leary had not yet thought of that !

I'm not having a go at you, but....
I can't believe you people...... Did no-one ever tell you 'Don't believe what you read in newspapers' ..?
There's nothing more to be said about this..

Like so many stories printed recently about RYR, it's total BS!!

Not easy to provide. Reason? Balance of a plane in departure/arrival, or just a simple turbulences...

This is not about Ryanair, as clearly indicated.
When I said that MOL had not thought of that, it's with tongue in cheek ... Smile

The reference is not a newspaper, but "flightglobal", related to Flight International, a well known and serious English magazine.

wow 40% more passengers and with this i would expect the same growth for luggage placed in cargo hold and cabin , this would change the whole dynamics of the A320 surely, unsure if this would be possible.. and as for safety would the bar like stool sitting position be anywhere near safety standards set?
personally i cannot see the stool like seats taking off but may improve comfort in many fast food joints Mad Laughing

And, of course, MichaŽl O'Leary has jumped on the idea :

Hm... I've heard it should looks like a tall bar table but this way it's something like a portal to switch the pax in and out Wink I don't like it this way as there will be no possibility to seat like it would be in bar table case...

A side benefit : when standing, there is less risk of DVT (Deep vein thrombosis) !

I don't like the idea of standing seats for safety reasons. However, if they are proven to be safe and that the extra passengers will not destabilise the aircraft, then maybe they could be implemented on domestic short range flights.

To add to this, these standing seats looks pretty small and thin...WONT SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE FAT PASSENGERS!? ;-) HA HA HA!!!

*Ps I realise that I have slagged off fat passengers now on two posts, however I am not 'fatist' as my google chrome spell check is telling me that I have made a spelling error when typing the word fatist- therefore fatism does not exist- and therefore I am not fatist. Just thought I would clear that up Ha Ha*
