Imagine if the next time you fly long haul, you'll be seating in these kind of seats (pic above). But that's just wishful thinking. The closer truth would be wider seats. Airbus is in talks with US Airlines to make planes with aisle seats that are extra wide, almost as wide as first class seats.
The wider seats will be implemented on the Airbus A320, and will turn the aisel seats to 20 inches wide. All three seats on the plane now are 18 inches wide, and if this change comes to place, we'll have 2 inches extra. Airbus estimates that airlines could charge a $10 fee for that extra room in the aisle seats.
Or they could make beds. Come on. How far fetched is that?
