Civil aircraft manufacturer Airbus has submitted a patent for seats that reconfigure based on passenger size. At last, the additional judgment you’ve so desperately ached for may finally become reality!
Oh, you sit on the bench?
We jest, but the new bench seats do have the potential to improve flying for families and overweight passengers. A silly mock-up of the re-configurable passenger bench seat shows two overweight individuals sharing the bench with the added comfort of retractable arm rests. The drawings look super legitimate and the squiggly lines used for labeling almost guarantee the patent request will be granted.
