I would think it to be a bit more claustrophobic compared to just being squeezed in side by side now.
Then too, with the middle seats set back, wouldn't the seat in front impinge on the window seat person's access to the aisle? I'm thinking of it being tighter to get out in an emergency, along with the middle-seat carry-on baggage on the floor sticking into the space as well. I'm sure all this was considered in the certification of the seat .... or was it?

I had the same thought, as if you're now being swallowed up even more. Now the middle seat person will have two elbows in their face as well. And how much elbowroom can you have if you have two adjacent seatbacks in the way? And I guess these seats dont recline. The window seat in the row behind would be completely blocked in!

The FAA is under heavy scrutiny, somewhat surprised it was not mentioned in the article.
