Skyrider 3.0: It's An Airline Seat But You're Sort Of Standing

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. You thought with the decreasing legroom and carry-on charges, flying couldn't get worse, right?

One aviation journalist called it a torture chamber. The company behind it says airlines can increase passenger loads by 20% - yay. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
