Boasting Comforts of a Cruise, Airline Cabins See Bright Flying Future
Zodiac Aerospace looks for a more comfortable and convinient air travel experience with Desire Lines life cabins
For the most part, air travel has become progressively less fun over the past two decades. Transportation security has made the airport less comfortable. Airline cost-cutting has made baggage and meals more of a chore. Efforts to cram more passengers in each flight has led to smaller seats with less leg room. In direct opposition to this trend is Zodiac Aerospace‘s proposed Desire Lines, which reinvents the entire airliner cabin to improve comfort and utility on board.
In the economy class section, the plan eliminates long rows of seats in favor of modular seats that can be grouped according to the size of different parties. These grouped areas can be made more private with noise-reducing hoods.
