Some interesting thinking coming through abut how aircraft seats might be arranged in the future:

How would that work Markis? All they've done is turn one column of seats 180 degrees.

Have they? I note no recline, and you need to look at the pitch. It their not trying to fit more seats in there is little incentive for airlines.

Still waiting to see sleeping pods like in Japanese railway stations on 777s and bigger. Get a feed in the lounge before departure and sleep all the way. Evacuation may be tricky, along 5 year olds doing ninja impersonations from the top bunk.

Apparently seatbelts, backrests arent required, and the crash rating of the foldable seat will be "interesting".

Why do you think it will be interesting given crew seats are exactly that on a lot of planes?

Let's just say i'm skeptical that this will come to fruition any time soon with current standards.

Much cheaper to give everyone aenesthetic, pile them on top of each other and cram more in for the flight, dont need to feed them or water and wake them just in time for landing.

The convertible seat looks alright. Those economy ones are just stupid and look like they would be really hard to get into and out of.

"To make your flight as short as possible, our flight attendants are switching on the sleep regulator, which will regulate your sleeping during the flight."
