With ticket prices skyrocketing, the combination of airlines (ie American/United et al) costomer service complaints and more, the airline industry needs to find new ways to keep the customers satisfied!
Well how about THIS combination of seats!?
The AirGo! So named because of the similarity to the word ergo, as in ergonomic airline seating, has arrived!
Yaghoubi said he had the idea for AirGo after a series of uncomfortable eight-hour flights to visit his family. In typical flight experience, he said, the passenger in front of you reclines their seat, occupying "one-third of the space I have paid for. I now have this dilemma whether I should recline my seat too." Another common scenario: A meal is being served and "the passenger in front does not want to wake up and my tray table is part of his seat so it is a lot closer to my face than it should be."
With AirGo, Yaghoubi said, every passenger has a minimum personal space which cannot be occupied when other passengers recline their seat. The screen and the tray table are now under the passenger's full control. The seat pitch has been increased to 41 inches, but has been designed in a way to occupy floor space minimally.
"Compared to a normal economy class, AirGo uses only an additional 16 percent of floor space thanks to the new nylon mesh design which replaces the bulky cushions in current seats, Yaghoubi said. "They are cheap, durable, recyclable and more comfortable, yet they are considerably thinner."
