Engineers of the American company Molon Labe Seating presented a new concept of airplane seats, which will be appreciated by many travelers.
Sometimes the flight is overshadowed by a flight that is not delayed and not tasty food, but an uncomfortable chair and neighbor. We seem to have found a way to fix this,” the company said.
Experts have proposed a new configuration of seats that allows all passengers to fly in comfortable conditions, even if you got a seat in the middle. According to the designers’ idea, the central seat should be slightly lower and farther from the side seats.
Thanks to this solution, the width of the middle seat has increased from 45.7 centimeters to 58.4 centimeters without any damage to neighboring places and passageways.
The engineers also worked on the shape of the armrests: now there will be no fight for the convenient location of the elbow. In Molon Labe Seating it was proposed to use a zigzag shape, which will allow passengers to use them both on the left and right side simultaneously, without interfering with each other.
Since the seats are designed for the aircraft of the future, engineers have not forgotten about the modern equipment, which is not available in all aircraft now. For example, each seat will necessarily have a holder for a smartphone and tablet, USB-port, table, as well as a sliding footrest.
The company offered several chair variants – for the economy and business segment. Seats for economical flights are not tilted back, but they are designed for short flights not longer than 3 hours.
For long journeys there is the same option of sitting, but more comfortable, with a screen and the ability to change the angle of inclination of the back.
It is reported that new comfortable chairs will appear in many American aircraft in the near future. The company said that one of the air carriers has already ordered 50 aircraft of a new configuration with such seats, in addition, negotiations are ongoing in the North American and Asian markets.
