Economy-Class Innovation: Slimmed-down
seats for extra legroom.

Trust German engineering—whether it’s
BMW or Recaro, the aviation industry’s answer to a sports car. This seat
manufacturer has just pioneered a simple-yet-brilliant upgrade to economy
seating that creates more legroom. Lufthansa has embraced the design,
purchasing 32,000 new seats across the fleet for $175 million. The seats
themselves have been thinned down (without compromising comfort) and the
magazine pouch shifted from knee height to behind the tray table. The result?
Stretching your legs a few more inches without stretching your wallet.
