SkyRider Airline Saddle Seat – Is FedEx PeoplePak Next?

USA Today profiled the SkyRider – a high density airline seat that increases passenger density. The design is based on a saddle due to an unfortunate assumption that airline passengers, like Cowboys, can remain comfortable seated in saddles for many hours. To seeing that strategy through to its logical conclusion, an airline could gain further density if the passengers were shipped like cargo, but crates are too bulky. FedEx Envelopes work better. Breaking News revealed the revolutionary FedEX PeoplePak prototype over 10 years ago.
