    What if your economy-class airline seat could feel nearly as luxurious as first class? It would have a personal bin dedicated to overhead storage. It would be constructed in such a way that your space wouldn’t be infringed upon when the person in front of you reclines their seat. And it wouldn’t cost that much more than what we pay for economy class today.

    AirGo (so named because of the similarity to the word ergo, as in ergonomic airline seating) is the brainchild of Alireza Yaghoubi, a Malaysia-based engineer who entered the design to the James Dyson Award, an international student design award running in 18 countries.

    At least it doesn't involve standing on a plane. ;)

    Looks quite a bit more claustrophobic. And the recliner in front DOES infringe. It just does not affect the screen or the tray.

    Same level of comfort as first class? That dude has never flown first class.
