    From Cattle Class to...Cowboy Class

    SkyRider airline seats pack fliers into 23 inches of space.

    The new airplane seat, to be unveiled next week at the Aircraft Interiors Expo Americas conference in Long Beach, would give passengers an experience akin to riding horseback.

    They'd sit at an angle with no more than 23 inches between their perch and the seat in front of them — a design that could appeal to low-cost airlines that have floated the idea of offering passengers standing-room tickets on short flights.
    "Good evening everyone, this is your Captain speaking to you from the flight deck. We are about to close the doors and commence our push-back from the gate. Please saddle up and ensure that your harness is firmly fastened."

    Would not want to sit in that during turbulence.
