With potential design improvements to seating on the horizon, we take a look at 3 other ways airlines could improve economy class. Listen up airlines, we have something to say.

James Lee, an award-winning designer for Paperclip Design, is trying to help improve flying economy class with his new seating design, necessary during long-haul flights when we all want to get some kip.

The clever design consists of a reclining backrest, space for our knees and a tray with a tablet stand, so we can truly relax. Sound like bliss, right? We hope it'll be picked up by the airlines then...

And with this in mind, we have a few other improvements that we'd like to see come about.

The one cabin bag business

This 'only one cabin bag' rule means we can't bring our favourite handbag with us unless we're able to fit it into our small, measly, cabin bag, upon boarding. Not easy when it's already jam-packed with our clothes and beauty products.

Budget airlines, free the handbag. It means no harm.

The horrible plane grub

It's a common complaint, but yeah, airplane food isn't that great. Who are we kidding, even the supposed good stuff's not good.

Since we're paying a hefty old airfare, a fresh sarnie wouldn't go amiss.

The crying, frustrated kids

Don't get us wrong here, we really feel kids' pain - who wants to sit in one place for countless hours, especially with popping ears and a plane full of antsy strangers? We feel like crying ourselves sometimes.

And we understand the plight of the parents too, but we think a children's area could make all our problems go away.

For the parents, kids and more importantly, us.
