Airline-making giant Airbus is said to be quietly shopping the idea of eliminating some seats altogether from airliners by "propping" passengers against upright backboards. If installed, they would allow more paying customers to be packed into economy.
Now, I have made adjustments for food-less flying and cavity searches at the security gate. And I understand how the airlines are having a bad time of it right now, what with profits being down. But what's next? Passing around a tin pot for making poopy?
