With airlines wringing money out of passengers like water from rain-soaked wool socks, it was most encouraging to stumble upon Delta's plan to create new, more commodious airplane seats for coach class.
What? No more feedlot fun with 200 of your closest strangers? No more olfactory guessing games about which of my seatmates had the onion soup for lunch? No more need to request an annulment from the guy in the middle seat if I want to use the bathroom?
According to dvice, the new seats are called "fixed cocoons" and will be installed in Delta's Boeing 767 and 777 economy-class sections by 2010. The unique shape and position of these seats will let you rest your head to the side without fear of drooling on your neighbor's shoulder. The staggering of the seats means the dude behind you won't be tempted to employ the Knee Defender to counter your recline. Heck, there's even a footrest, not to mention space for all to exit.
