A blending of cabin classes is happening. A new designer is proposing blurring the lines between economy class flight and private business class travel with a new integrated idea. This proposal would bring the world’s first lay-flat premium economy seats into the business class area.
The lie-flat configuration can be adapted to whatever the airline company prefers, but the proposed configuration has suites stacked slightly above the lay-flat seats to more effectively use the space. With the use of 3D modelling the suites should not interfere with passenger comfort in these new seats as is seen with today’s angled seats with foot wells underneath storage cubbies.
This idea is set to reduce the competitive gap between Middle Eastern carriers and Western carriers in terms of class of travel.
