Every day seems to be April Fool's Day in the airline industry

Standing-room-only seats?
The airlines have come up with a new answer to an old question: How many passengers can be squeezed into economy class?

A lot more, it turns out, especially if an idea still in the early stage should catch on: standing-room-only "seats."
Why stop there? With a little ingenuity, they should be able stack them like cordwood, or maybe even containerize them before boarding. Should help with security, too.
