An innovative design that makes the middle airplane seat more comfortable has been cleared for takeoff by the Federal Aviation Administration.

The S1 seat, by Molon Labe Seating, is slightly lower to the ground, includes three extra inches of space and allows the person sitting in it to use the arm rests, without having to fight for space with their neighbor.

'I'm not sure I'll be changing that approach with the S1's design, though the staggered arrangement does make flying in the middle slightly more comfortable, with a bit more room for your shoulders and arms,' he said. 

'It's unclear which airlines will be adding it and when, but I'm certainly eager to give it a try, lifetime iptv box assuming it does launch in the U.S.' 

'I can't wait until the day someone says to me: 'Can I grab that middle seat from you? he added.
