Anyone who have experienced a long-haul flight knows how it can get to be a pain in the butt (literally!). You spend almost all of your time in that flight on your seat eating, drinking, sleeping, relaxing, chatting, or working. Long-haul flights can get boring, and even the expensive business class ones are no exception.
Enter Airbus’ new “Settee Corner” chair, offering couch-style airplane seating, with the usual business class features.
The new airplane seat premiered at the Aircraft Interiors Expo 2019 (AIX) in Hamburg, Germany, attracting buzz from passengers and airlines alike.
On these new seats, fliers can recline, lounge-style, just like on a couch at home. They can be joined by a traveling partner for an aperitif and to enjoy the in-flight entertainment.
And when it's time to sleep, they just lie down on the seat, no mechanisms needed.
Aside from promoting a more comfortable way of air travel, the new style also is 30-50% lighter than the traditional style.
