Economy class fliers don’t get much legroom and the overhead lockers are a source of dispute and potential danger.
Today’s invention is a way for passengers to sit more comfortably.
Airline seats would consist of a back, straps and headrest only. Passengers would bring on board their own seat base. This would have to stay within outer dimensional limits but could be specially padded and formed to fit the user’s back, rear-end and leg shape.
Each of these seats would act as the traveller’s hand baggage, so that overhead lockers need not be provided.
