the editor of "usa today's" "today in the sky" blog. >> if we've seen nothing else in the airline industry, they're very clever about coming up with ways to sell seats to passengers, especially when they can charge more for either seats that are better or for seats that are less awful. >> reporter: airbus previously sought patents for a design stacking passengers and this semi-standing concept. seat maker zodiac created a hexagon pattern where the middle seat faces the passengers in the aisle and window while adding up to 30 more passengers per plane. tennessee congressman stephen cohen worries extra seats could jeopardize safety making it hard to evacuate within the required 90 seconds as seen in this video. he's authored a bill requiring the f.a.a. to set minimum seat- size standards. >> if people can't get out of an airplane in emergency conditions they lose their lives. it shouldn't be after there's an accident. after there's an accident, it's too late and people are dead.
