Imagine getting on a plane and flying to your destination, standing. That's what the Airbus is offering or rather, proposing to airlines. The "standing room only" will be in a padded section and each passenger will be held in a harness.
The idea has been created for short flights, at the moment. Lawdy, imagine standing up for a long flight, like from DC to California or Hawaii!
There are several reasons why "standing" flight is being tossed around, a couple of them are fuel costs and the complaints that seats are becoming narrower. Hmmm, seats are narrower or that people are becoming bigger? But, that's a whole other story.
