Maybe we’ve all become too complacent thinking about aircraft interior configurations. Rows of identical seats are fine, I suppose, but they lack a certain sense of imagination or inspiration. What fun is that?
Some folks in Germany are looking to change the experience, and the changes would be quite significant if the concept they’ve put into their promo video ever becomes reality. Think double-decker seating on a narrow-body plane (they use the Airbus A320 as a base). With automated baggage storage bins. And all sorts of other crazy stuff.
I’m not sure how checked baggage and other W&B issues would work in such a configuration, among a host of other potential issues. But it is definitely a cool concept. And absolutely crazy.
