Wouldn't that be a bit of a safety hazard if you have a window seat and the two seats next to you are folded down? You'd have to climb over the seats to get to the aisle in case of an emergency. Maybe not too difficult of a task for most, but anyone even a little motion disabled could have a problem.

No, no, no. The seats do not fold down for you to put your feet on. That is your own table, for Christ's sake. Do you do that at home? Most seats fold down like that to make room for a stretcher to go thru the cabin if loaded from the front end. And for emergency situations too. In fact the ones aft of exits do not fold down.

Sorry guys but that isn't an original idea. Every commercial aircraft that I have been on has seats that breakover. Sorry don't remember the actual amount of force that needs to be applied to make the seat breakover. Seven lbs seems to stick in my mind for some reason.
We wouldn't have been able to put injured people in stokes baskets on the aircraft otherwise.
