If this seat design succeeds, we'll have more airplane legroom soon2/19/2013
Somewhere along the way, flying coach became an exercise in endurance — specifically, enduring something terrible. Now a Malaysian engineering student has submitted a concept for a radically redesigned seat to the James Dyson Award competition. Alireza Yaghoubi's "AirGo" seating system uses 16 percent more space than typical seats but increases the seat pitch to 41 inches (meaning more legroom) while reducing the impact of seat-back reclining. Bulky cushion seats have also been replaced with comfortable, thinner nylon mesh. Though airlines are unlikely to adopt anything that reduces the number of seats (read: fewer paying passengers), Yaghoubi says that income could be offset with in-seat sales of apps and games thanks to the individualized TV screens that come with each seat.
