A new way to travel... check it out!
There are many complaints these days about the lack of space in airplane seats, and the stress and exhaustion that results from remaining in them for long periods.
As a frequent business traveler, I too spent many endless, sleepless nights aboard planes on intercontinental flights. Thinking of a way to better this situation, I had an idea of a design for commercial aircraft passenger cabins that can provide every passenger with a fully reclining seat and far more freedom to move about.
This solution, and the added space that it provides to every traveler, may also help in reducing the number of cases of travel-related DVT, a condition that has been linked to lack of mobility during prolonged periods of time.
I'd like to know what my fellow travelers think of this concept, so if you would like to take a close look at it, I invite you to visit this website:

The only problem I see with the design is meeting the FAA certification for Part 25 aircraft. Which calls for a emergency evacution demonstration of the whole aircraft in 90 seconds. This is hard to meet with standard seating and when the lights go is even harder to meet. Check the FAA's Inspector Handbook Order 8300.10 Vol. 2, chapter 77 it will give you an idea what it takes.
Thanks for your reply and for the useful insight.
As you know, this is a conceptual design for which no physical tests have been made; however, Iím certain that the aisle advantage (3 aisles) that the ABH system has over conventional configurations (2 aisles) can be an important factor for disembarking speed. I feel itís important to highlight that 50% more aisle space translates into one third less persons per aisle.
I hope this works out and the airlines go for it. I quit flying because of cramped seats and no leg room. When I would make a long flight it would take me 2 or 3 days to recover. I'm retired now and I don't have to fly, and I choose not to.
