Southwest Airlines is redesigning its cabin interiors to include six more seats, thinner seat cushions for greater comfort, eco-friendly carpeting and brighter colors to modernize its feel. Passengers will still have the same usable space because of less-bulky cushions, and the new seats will feature improved ergonomics for better back support. The redesign will cost $60 million and is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2013.
