With a few hidden cameras in tow, airliner KLM along with DDB and Tribal Worldwide Amsterdam decided test whether travelers waiting at the gate in what we imagine is the hometown airport would go “flat or not.” /What the hell does that mean exactly? Well, if you watch above, KLM is hyping its new business class “flat seat” by installing such seats in select areas of the gate. Those who wen t ¬†flat would ultimately win a pair of biz class tickets, like the lucky person in the clip. While we doubt we’ll be flying KLM in the near future, the chairs look pretty comfy and seeing as it’s difficult getting decent sleep on an airline to begin with thanks to the positioning, we’d be glad to see domestic airlines follow suit in adopting the contraption. In addition to the case study video, MediaMonks has also developed an online game to tying into the effort that lets you gauge whether certain unsuspecting travelers would go flat. The site’s a tad sluggish but why not give it a go if you got a few.
