Interesting...take a CRJ700, and actually remove seats.
It will certainly give you room to stretch out... there is also a cost saving aspect. 50 Seat or less aircraft only require 1 Flight Attendant!

I wish united airlines the best with this new service,new configurations and new aircraft..this is only on select routes however..everyone wants bigger seats and more amenities,so this is a start!
I have heard that the airlines will be removing the cushioned seats and installing folding chairs back to back where they can double the passenger capacity on the main deck.. Also, luggage compartments will be fitted with stacked cots and the luggage will be shipped by UPS in advance. Toilets will be eliminated and Lady J bottles will be handed out to each passenger. This saves more space for folding chairs. You will asked to bring your own peanuts and there will be a paiy for soda machines installed on the flight deck door. I think I'll take the Grayhound.
All jokes aside, a number of years ago, Southwest was looking at getting vertical seats to where you stand for the entire flight. They never did get it certified.
GoJet? That'll go well.
It Will Go Well!
Sorry United, but you did not appear in the top ten international airlines. Polaris seats are one reason. They, and United First, are like riding in a form fitting taco. If you can walk through a five foot doorway without ducking, you will be fine on United. The rest of us will be on Singapore.
