I'm buried in a mound of work so pardon me for the quickie blog, but you simply must read the following article:
Japanese seat manufacturer Koito has admitted it fabricated safety data on 150,000 seats used by 32 carriers.
We've been talking about this subject here and on Flightglobal's IFEC channel.
I wonder how many of these seats have in-flight entertainment and connectivity (IFEC).
As one insider tells me: "The s#%$ is moving at full speed towards the fan! So why aren't airlines in a bigger flap about this?"
On a side note - I drive a Toyota. What the heck is going on over there!?!
