    I just flew in a nice fancy new 737 last week with Delta (obviously, it wasn't the new version from this story).

    The seats were sooooo cramped. My knees were rubbing up against the seat in front of me the whole time. The bathrooms were also the smallest I've ever seen on any airplane.

    Thank god they had nice new TVs in the seats or I would have gone crazy.

    "Even with the additional seats, he said, passengers will have more legroom. Ryanair plans to move back the galley to provide more space in the cabin."

    The next step to air travel will be for them to put the seats as close as they can together and eliminate the aisles completely. Then design the plane so that the roof telescopes backwards and they load the people in through the roof with a crane.

    All about squeezing as many people in! Damn the comfort!

    Airbus already beat you to that idea with their "aircraft pods" concept:


    http://www.airbus.com/innovation/future-by-airbus/a-whole-new-way-to-fly/
    "In another scenario, passengers could be pre-seated in cabin pods before the plane actually arrives, ready for integration on the aircraft, saving time and making processing much simpler."

    http://www.cnn.com/2014/06/05/travel/see-through-cabins-future-flight/
    "We could think about city center check-in and actually transport little pods to the airport where the passengers are already in and just slide the pod into the airplane,".

    Stand-up seating will be next. Or they could emulate submarine bunks. You have to love that they say it's an improvement.

    Maybe Boeing will put in a bigger fuel gauge for Ryanair, a couple of their flights had to make priority landings because the plane was low on fuel. I read that Boeing almost shut down the 737 program several years ago.

    I feel sorry for you guys in America. Your airlines are starting to adopt the practices of the low cost European carriers and it means no legroom. I love economy domestic in the US as there is currently at least twice the legroom as on Ryanair or Easyjet here in Europe.

    Holy crap I think we're onto something here...

    a craps table in the back? Turbulence hits as soon as someone rolls the dice and it moves them off the seven to a front line winner!

    You know as well as I do that this would be a "no roll" call-out...unless it happened the other way!
