VIDEO: High-density full-flat seat not for the super tall

At an exact height of 5ft, 11.75in (and a solid 6ft, 3in in heels), I’m considered a tall lass. But people like me are becoming less of an oddity, as our species gets collectively taller.

So why is EADS Sogerma bringing a high-density full-flat business class seat to market? Simple. Airlines want to be able to maintain the capacity of a modern business class cabin (often distinguished by those ‘hold-on-with-your-toes’ lie-flat seat nightmares), while offering a full-flat solution, which has become the cost of doing business in business class.

I tried EADS Sogerma’s so-called Equinox business class seat at the recent Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg, and here’s the result of my little experiment.
