The future of air travelFor those of you who have longed to escape the confines of a cramped airline seat, your wishes have been granted.  Airline manufacturer Airbus has suggested that airlines place their passengers on upright, supportive "jumpseats".  The normal capacity of 500 seatedpassengers on an A380 would jump to the maximum allowed 853 if everyone would just stand up.
