Standing room only on budget airline

Will vertical airline seating be the wave of the future?

Budget airline Ryanair has said it will introduce ‘standing-room only’ areas on its flights.

The low cost carrier has announced proposals to install new ‘vertical seats’ (pictured) on a range of short haul flights within the next two years.

Ryanair's vertical seating will cost £4 (about $6).

The illustration shows a “standing seat” to a conventional airline seat.
