World’s Smallest Airline Seat (Video Included)

OMG, check out these new seats they expect you to sit on, can it get anymore ridiculous?

It is estimated that the Skyrider will allow just 23 inches (58 centimetres) of legroom, seven inches (18 centimetres) less than the average seat pitch of around 30 inches (76 centimetres). The new seats are curved like a saddle and forces passengers to sit at an angle. Part of the passengers’ weight will be taken on their legs, which are also tucked under the seat in front.

I just couldn’t imagine sitting in this seat, not at all. Surely this would only be for short flights, even then it would be very uncomfortable. There is no way you could possibly use these seats on a long flight. It also stated in the article that these seats would be cheaper, well I think they should be free.

      Hi travelrat,
      LOL, I’ve seen pictures of those canvas seats, I thought at the time that they were better than nothing, I may of been wrong about that one.
      We can truly say now that these seats represent cattle class. 🙂

    Regardless of what that guy said in the video, I’m 6’2” and there is no way you will get me on these seats, 10min would be too long.

      Hi Ron,
      I can see it being very uncomfortable for tall people, and also for those with a bit of weight as well, just imagine trying to have a cup of coffee, not much room between the table and you, every time you would put your head down to have a sip, you would hit the seat in front of you. 😆

    The airline that installs these seats will be out of business within a year.
