standing-room-only-medflight911-air-ambulanceStanding Room Only

Back in June we wrote a blog: Reclining Seats Cause Air Rage? What Does This Mean for Air Medical Escorts? Well, what kind of air rage do you think would ensue if airplanes had standing room only? Sounds like a nightmare to us!

We recently came across an article about Airbus' patent for a standing only "seats." The seats are basically like bicycle seats with belts . . . OUCH! The argument behind these seats is that, 1) the airlines can accommodate more passengers, hence lowering the cost of air travel, and 2) better lumbar support. We will admit that it certainly would provide better lumbar support and would help prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT); however, any trip longer than an hour would be incredibly uncomfortable and would probably turn passengers away from air travel.

Air travel is uncomfortable enough as it is without taking away padding, arm rests, and the slight recline. And from a medical transportation point of view, these "seats" would pose huge problems. When transporting a patient via commercial air, our medical professionals make it their number priority that the patient is safe and comfortable. For someone who is ill these seats would be incredibly uncomfortable for any extended period of time. For someone who has not sat up right in months or has not been out of the hospital wouldn't even be able to fly on one of these aircrafts. In fact, we recently escorted a patient from China to Los Angeles, who would have been physically unable to travel on a commercial airline in these seats.

Anytime we are transporting a patient via commercial air we try our best to get first class seating, but sometimes it isn't an option due to the patients schedule, the airline, and the length of the trip. However, in every circumstance we do everything in our power to ensure that the patient is comfortable and safe while traveling. Hopefully these seat changes will not go through, but if they do, MedFlight911 has got you covered.

For first-class medical transportation, MedFlight911 is the best! Call us at 888-359-1911 or get a no-obligation air medical transport quote here.
