New cabin patent: Does Boeing really hate humans this much?For a publication that is generally about good things, Australian Business Traveller has a sharp eye for humbug in drawing our attention to a 12 across business class atrocity patent from Boeing. However, the problem is more widespread than Boeing. Its rival Airbus seems to be in a contest with the cruel American to come up with even crueler ways of cramming more people into airliners.

Food, going to the bathroom, and avoiding confinement craze is not possible in this configuration. What are they thinking here?

The problem is that while it is only a small difference in cost to have a decent experience in an airliner, no one is offering that. Its either First/business class or no class. I am a pilot so I do fly myself nearly all always but some time I am going to pick a an aircraft so if I can't hitch a ride, I need to take an airliner one way, which I hate to do. I didn't think I would ever find any kind of flying miserable, but I was wrong.
it's "salami tactics"--you sell more at the front of the plane, so squeeze the back and sell "Economy Plus" (and Doubleplus, I suppose)
If the sheeple can put up with the tsa, this is nothing in comparison. Airlines would be stupid not to profit off the passive acceptance of their "customers." If you put up with this BS, you deserve it.
