Passengers could soon be standing during flights

Italian manufacturers Aviointeriors have designed new upright seats that aim to take up less space in the aircraft - great news for airlines looking to cram in as many passengers as possible.

Not such great news for passengers who'll have to stay in a semi-standing position during the journey.

The manufacturers claim that there would some level of comfort for passengers and the seats are designed so you can lean back and have a bit of support; but at the end of the day, you'd still need to be stood up throughout the flight.

The seats are designed with a 23-inch pitch meaning that airlines could get up to 20% more places included in the cabin. After all, if passengers are stood up that means much less legroom.

The new designs were unveiled at the Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, and are aimed towards budget airlines who fly short-haul routes.
