As you can obviously see from the pictures, the seats create the idea of a saddle.
An Aviointeriors agent told: “The seat is like a saddle. Cowboys ride eight hours on their horses during the day and still feel comfortable in it,” Skyrider is trying these seats, thus by increasing the number of the seats and lowering the ticket price.
It looks that also other airline lines are very interested into incorporating these seats too. Skyrider will allow just 23 inch of legroom, seven inches less than the average seat.
According to the Italian seat design company Aviointeriors, these seats are recommended for short flights only, like 1 up to 3 hours, and are designed like saddles that you probably have seen on cowboys’ movies.
