These New Double-Decker Airplane Seats Allow Passengers To Lie Down During Flight

Published 3 years ago

If there’s one thing that’s universally hated by all travelers, it’s having no legroom on long flights. You’re already crammed into your tiny economy class seat and as soon as the person in front of you decides to recline their seat at least a little bit, your legroom becomes practically non-existent. However, US-based startup Zephyr Aerospace aims to make this horrible experience a thing of the past by introducing revolutionary double-decker type seats that would allow economy class passengers to lie down during flight.

On their website, the startup states that most airline seats haven’t changed at all since the ’70s and that 99 percent of economy class seats are fixed in an upright position that makes sleeping in the almost impossible. “They force unnatural postures over long periods of time and can damage health,” says Zephyr Aerospace.

According to Zephyr Aerospace, airlines try to justify high fares by offering perk bundles but 70% of travelers would gladly trade them for the ability to lie down and sleep during flight.

“Our design allows passengers the gift of multi-functional usage—to lie completely flat, lounge or sit upright with their legs fully extended,” says the startup.

People found the concept pretty interesting

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
