airline seats pack fliers into 23 inches of space
The new airplane seat, to be unveiled next week at the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas conference in Long Beach, would give passengers an experience akin to riding horseback.
They’d sit at an angle with no more than 23 inches between their perch and the seat in front of them — a design that could appeal to low-cost airlines that have floated the idea of offering passengers standing-room tickets on short flights.
“For flights anywhere from one to possibly even up to three hours … this would be comfortable seating,” The seat … is like a saddle. Cowboys ride eight hours on their horses during the day and still feel comfortable in the saddle.”

Not me! My airplane seat is too small already! What happens if you get on a plane, and you assume you will have a normal seat, and then you see these seats. Can you get off the plane? What if you get on a plane, and for any reason find the plane unacceptable, can you get off the plane? I don’t think you could but you should be able to.
