My office is getting rid of them.

I can deliver them to the space.

Regards,

Jon.

Initial reaction is yes from me. What does everyone else think?

More seats are always needed. And plane seats are a nice change from
office chairs.

Cool.

I'll try and get them. I might not have been the first to claim them. I'll try and get a photo.

From memory, I think they have seat belts. Not sure about headphone jacks.

Regards,

Jon.

How big are they? how heavy are they? can you work at a desk in front of
them or are they too low?

Could you link to a picture?

If they can't be eaisly moved about they aren'y going to be that useful
(It's nice to keep the space eaisly reconfigurable), I think we've got
enough sofas for the moment.

Maybe you could mount them on the wall. A bunk-sofa.

Airline seats are designed to be bolted to a floor and reasonable lightweight so it should be possible to bolt them to some locking castors or a surface if they're too awkward to just lift. The blue two seater sofa isn't brilliant in my point of view so if it could fit in a similar amount of space could be a decent swap. Need a picture and a little more information to make an informed choice.

These seats are pointless and will be a waste of space. No we don't want them.

I actuall have to agree, from my experiece of cheap airline seats, they're rediculously uncomfortable, and probably no good for sitting at a desk.  While they may look kinda cool for a while, I think another sofa would be more practical and comfortable if we need more relaxed seating, which currently i'm not sure we do anyway.

I refer to the initial offer thread in which a large number of people
said yes, as long as they were mounted on castors.

I see no harm in taking them in the short term, then disposing of them
if they prove unsuitable or nobody fixes them up. There are plenty of
ridiculous startups nearby that will take them.
