True, you have a point there. So maybe they'll settle on a lighter, more compact, but just as safe seat... which will be pretty uncomfortable, so he still gets his way.

The model works, but for how long.

I am going to bring up a pertinent point here.
If British DCA allows standing in civil airliners into their airspace, it will be the final proof that Britain is in decline generally. DCA Australia is patterned on DCA Britain and the bloody cows will come home before that happens here.

Their idea about vertical seating would give you as a passenger a free ride. If you choose the standing option, you would not have to pay for your ticket. Now thats low budget, the Ryanair way.  :P

In further news here in Australia on this, it now appears that RyanAir 'has' said that anyone standing won't have to pay but if you still want a seat you will.
I know socialism is rampant in Europe and in fact many countries are now further to the left than the Soviet Union, but can someone tell me why a private company wants people to fly for free?
What are they to get out of it?

Lots of aussie passengers perhaps?  ;) Just joking.

I have no idea what this would lead to, because the whole idea of vertical seats (for free) sounds so stupid, there is nothing to gain.  :)

He looks a lot older than I thought he'd be. Fifty something I guess.

LOL! No, im "only" 37 years old.  ;D

I felt the need to change my avatar since i had that JA37 Viggen from the start.

Anyway, here in Sweden there was a vote on the Ryanairs idea by a newspaper. More then half voted that they liked the vertical seating idea and would preffer it if it gave them the chance to fly for free.

They have to be some real cheap ass incompetent monkeys who voted that its sounds like a good idea.  :o

OK. I guess I thought I could upload it from my own browser but it looks like it needs to be a URL like 'snapfish' or 'shutterfly', etc.
