    That is cool. Hope this will become a reality.

    Looks much better than what exists.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    right? it seems like it just push-locks over from the 'aisle chair' to the seat... I don't know why they didn't standardize the whole process years ago.

    The transfer to and from the Hannibal Lecter chair is the main reason I never travel anymore, so this is kind of exciting.

    ive been on a bunch of planes where that skinny little aisle chair barely fits down the aisle, so that concept would work only on larger planes with wide aisle, or only on front row
