Brilliant or Baffling: "Standing" Airplane Seats

To make flights more uncomfortable than they already are, a company just invented the "SkyRider" airplane seat, in which passengers would be seated in a half standing, half seating position. The chair would take up 23 inches of legroom, a lot less than the minimum 31 inches required in coach. The idea behind this is for budget airlines to squish more people into planes, leading to lower ticket prices.

What do you think — brilliant or baffling?

For very short trips, I could see it. Be like taking the train. But definitely not for a long flight!

Why the heck not. I've been on train rides where I had to stand for hours because there were no open seats and too many people to even sit down on the floor.

This is ridiculous. It's not a freaking ride at Busch Gardens.
