Standing room section removed[edit]

This diff removed the section on standing room alternatives as "amusing trivia, but unecyclopedic". I disagree. The section was sourced from mainstream media, and has therefore in some sense been floated as an apparently serious idea. This was not some random April Fool's joke. That the idea of standing room did not gain wide acceptance (at least not yet) is true, but that the idea has been floated is clearly verifiable, and documented. I am uncertain as to what was "unencyclopedic" about that section. Sjakkalle (Check!) 06:07, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

My thoughts:
  1. As I read the cite (including the two corrections), this is a silly non-story, based on a journalist's misunderstanding of the facts.
  2. It doesn't really speak to the article topic, IMHO.
Any other opinions gratefully received. Happy to go with the consensus, naturally ... richi 10:31, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

"Standing room" air travel is a serious proposal, not a hoax[edit]

I recommend that you add a link to your current article on the "vertical seat". That is, "standing room", as proposed for use in passenger airplanes. Within that article, there are links to information that show that this concept is not merely a joke, nor a hoax. Nor is it a journalist's rush to get some attention by exaggerating a questionable proposal that has little practical value.

This concept as also known as the "standing seat", or "perch seat". For aviation, it is possibly the most frugal economy class. It is analogous to increasing the capacity of railway passenger cars, by adding standing room in the aisles, with overhead bars or straps for handholds. However, the airline version is a bit safer, with addition of more secure waist belts and shoulder harnesses. (talk) 14:05, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

New name for Weber Aircraft[edit]

I heard that the new name for Weber Aircraft is Zodiac Seats US LLC. Is this true?--Jax 0677 (talk) 01:02, 12 October 2012 (UTC)

Alternative meaning[edit]

Maybe this is an inappropriate article for such information but an "airline seat" in UK usage has the additional application of referring to any seats on public transport which are arranged as they are on an airliner i.e. one seat facing the back of the next. This term is most prevalent where an alternative might occur, such on trains or buses where there might be "facing" or "table" seats. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:27, 22 August 2013 (UTC)

New Trends[edit]

American Airlines uses some rear facing seats in the business class cabin on its 787 aircraft which went into service in 2015.

American Airlines installed 10-across economy seating for most rows on its 777-300ER deliveries, and I believe they are retrofitting their 777-200 to use 10-across. The Main Cabin Extra section retains 9-across and has been changed to 3-3-3 from 2-5-2
