Infinity introduces BYO concept for seats
« on: November 29, 2019, 10:09:05 AM »
Infinity today announced the latest product improvement to deal with the growing costs and small margins burdening the airline industry: “Bring your own seat”.

To save weight and the substantial capital outlay for aircraft interiors, Infinity has come up with a plan that industry observers have hailed as "unusual but clever". Passengers should bring their own seat if they want to fly with the US based airline. A trial run performed in the second quarter of this year has been a runaway success and Infinity is now rolling out the concept across all flights by the end of 2013. All seats in the airline's fleet will be gradually removed as aircraft come in for maintenance.

All new planes currently under order will receive the empty cabin with space for 200-300 seats. Passengers bringing larger seats will be charged a higher fee. "Now we don't have just three service classes, but it all becomes very fluid! You could have 100 different classes on board with the new concept. It's a revolution!" said Infinity COO Barbara Barebones.

On-board entertainment will still be available on long flights when there is a need for a crew rest seat. "It will just become a big game of musical chairs when that happens! Isn't that going to be fun - you'll probably think twice about going to the bathroom!" celebrates Barebones.

When booking passengers will also have the opportunity of renting a seat from list of approved seats, starting at $10 for a small pole to hold on to up to $2500 for a fully FAA certified seat with seatbelt and cupholder.

Investors will be extra happy because the new change enables the airline to switch aircraft between cargo and passenger operations seamlessly. Infinity Cargo CEO Jason Cattle: "This is great - a plane could fly cargo from Europe to New York and then with zero set-up time pivot to taking passengers to Japan. They're just human cargo when you think about it, anyway!"

We expect passengers to be thrilled about the changes.
