    That's what freaked me out. Imagine a downward-tilted seat, turbulence, and tight jeans coming together to make the perfect storm of frontal crotch wedgie. Plus you can't stand up to fix it.

    I would just feel totally claustrophobic. It's bad enough in some ordinary budget airline seats.

    I could perhaps see a practical use for this in military transport planes or if a lot of people need to get from A to B quickly but not for ordinary commercial flights.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I can't imagine anyone could survive an otherwise survivable crash smooshed up in these chairs.

    I cannot see this being successful. I'm a midget and I'm uncomfortable in the limited space that standard commercial flights offer. This would be torture. Deep vein thrombosis?? Leg cramps?? Going to the toilet?? Turbulence on the crotch?? Not to mention claustrophobia.

    They may as well just hang everyone from hooks. It would be more comfortable than these folding chairs.
