Flying is usually a horrible experience. And if these photos of a patent Airbus recently filed on how to configure the cabin to fit even more people in a narrow tube are any indication, it can get a whole lot worse.
Ladies and gentlemen, the future is “stacked seating” or, as we call it, bunk beds:
The patent doesn’t explain how the airline will prevent the idiot above you from dropping his drink on your head when the plane hits a bump or where you put your carry-on. Hopefully that’s covered in a future design.
