    Imagine hooking those bike seats up to the plane's engines. That's cure worldwide obesity pretty quickly.

    Because they can fit more of these seats in a plane. Seats getting smaller and smaller as airlines try to cram in as many people as they can.

    This is ******ed. I can understand wanting to make space, but airline seats are notoriously uncomfortable as it is. This will only lead to less people flying.

    It'll get all those exercise freaks into planes, at the very least.

    If the savings are passed to the consumer I'd be all for this for short domestic flights. However, you're probably looking at a tiny percentage price drop for the consumer and huge percentage profit increase for the airlines.

    Airbus will next realize they can fit even MORE people into a plane if they grind them up into a slurry and pour them into the cabin until it's completely filled.

    I'm pretty sure that's what happens in the pilot episode of Fringe.

    You're right, the cabin is designed to be pressurized, they could probably pump the passenger-goo in under compression and account for even more people per plane. Would probably be cost-effective over time, even if they have to reinforce the fuselage.
