1000 passengers stuffed into seats that children can barely fit into for 20+ hours.

Look for more instances of "air rage".

Even if the thing still holds the same number of people, if it is more effecient I would think the industry would be very much interested. Especially considering the cost of fuel.

It's too hard to pressurize the cabin. That might be the biggest reason we still fly around in giant cigar tubes.

Well....if the design is crazy and there are lots of odd "pockets" and angles - you have a point.
