Will we be sitting in circles when flying in the future? If you take a look at the latest Airbus patent application, it could be a very real possibility!
According to its patent application Airbus says that:
Traditional airplanes — where passengers sit in rows in a cylindrical tube — come with a big design flaw: when the cabin is pressurized, it puts a lot of stress on the plane’s front and back. That requires weighty reinforced frames and limits the number of people you can fit on an airplane. The circular design, Airbus theorizes, would eliminate that problem by redistributing that pressure much more efficiently. Plus, it would allow airlines to fit even more paying passengers on an aircraft.
