Flying…cutting edge design

Cutting edge design?

If so it’s a crime

I get, the need to streamline

To make everything compact

To reduce weight, that’s a fact  

I understand that, first class gets the whizz

The smaller the space, the more  the design should fizz

So why,in lower classes, on planes

Do I feel a maniac holds the reins?

Paying less, unimportant guest? 

Why are the buttons for recline

On the inside of the arm, is that fine?

Unless stick thin they are hard to reach

Become a contortionist ,balance on one cheek

The remote for the screen, again on the inside is seen

Hard to wrestle out unless you are lean

Natty design the table folds away 

Hard to extract and then fold up the tray

Where are the instructions for how it all works?

For us less techno savvy burkes

Even in economy plus, you need to limbo

When leaving your seat, ok if a nimbo

With little space who needs a coat hook ?

Something more useful, would be better in my book

Cutting edge design?

Please think of us sometime!

As you can tell I have flown recently and was not overjoyed by the experience…and thus inspired!
