If the future you may not have to worry about leg room on airplanes anymore because their won't be seats at all. That's right. Budget airline VivaColombia is considering getting rid of their seats and making passengers stand for the duration of their flight.“There are people out there right now researching whether you can fly standing up – we’re very interested in anything that makes travel less expensive," VivaColombia’s founder and CEO William Shaw explains.
“Who cares if you don’t have an inflight entertainment system for a one-hour flight? Who cares that there aren’t marble floors… or that you don’t get free peanuts?”It turns out the Colombian company isn't the first airline to consider going seatless.
In 2003, Airbus came up with an idea of allowing passengers to be buckled into a vertical “seat” while UK budget airline Ryanair proposed standing areas on its fleet in 2010.The one remaining problem? Vertical seats have not been approved in any country so far.
