Cattle Class: Saddle Up For the New SkyRider Seat?

Manufactured by Aviointeriors, the new SkyRider airline seats pack fliers into 23 inches of space. These seats are meant for a class below the current economy class cabin found on many airlines, as the seat pitch, or the space between two rows of seats, is a mere 23 inches as opposed to the more common 31 to 33 inches. The seats do not recline.

Will your airline of choice be installing these seats — which seem to be a cross between a saddle and a roller coaster seat — anytime soon? If they do, is there an airfare low enough where you would bypass an economy class seat for this one? Would advertised airfares be lower but refer to these seats?

    There you go!..Just very recently I participate in a traveling blog.,and you know what…80% of the people complained about reclining seats “because” when the seat front of them reclined back they were (invading their space). I wrote in that blog: keep compalining about reclining seats..and you all will see very soon the airlines who doesn’t know how and always thinking how to stuff more passengers in what already is a sardine can will establish the all straight unmovable seats. ,Once again, there you go all of you,,ARE YOU HAPPY NOW?? no more worries about anybody (invading your space)

  2. Your blog about the new Skyrider seats was of great interest to me. I found your comments about these seats sitting below regular economy class particularly intriguing.
