LSEAT has been officially shortlisted at the CRYSTAL CABIN AWARD highlighting the invention for the year 2022, organized by AIRCRAFT INTERIORS in Hamburg, the biggest worldwide tradeshow. This is the highest distinction in the industry. Selection criteria were focused on innovation, passenger experience improvements
As massive vaccination campaigns have started everywhere, the aviation industry is now growing again as travel restrictions are lifted. Tourism and air travel is picking up rapidly in the North America and Europe. Leisure industry appears to recover most quickly. Business trips also, but damage to the economy dictated cost reductions in most professional acivities.
Airlines started flying smaller and more efficient aircraft at higher service frequencies, to adapt easily to variable demand. Fly full at most profitable operational and fuel costs is the rule for all airlines.
Basic economy class is and will be the most frrequented and most populated class. Revenue increase relies on maintaining occupancy at its highest level and this has been the only way to boost airline’s profits. No significant innovation has appeared in that class interior design in decades. LSEAT is the innovation and the exception.
LSEAT is an economy class passenger seat, convertible into sleep mode without power or crew assistance, maintaining pitch distance between seat rows as well as cabin passenger density . That comfort improvement on a fully booked cabin is significant on any trans-ocean or transcontinental flight. Passenger is happy to pay a 50 $ per seat mark-up for this improved service and enhanced experience. On two long haul legs flown a day 330 days/year, airline yearly revenues increase 33,000 $ per seat. Investment pay-back is below three months.
The LSEAT’s comfort benefits will be the preference for economy passengers on competitive routes, filling flights at higher revenue levels. Airlines can install all or part of their economy class and boost their revenues and profits accordingly.
LSEAT is a retro-fit kit, custom adaptable to any new or in-use seat. Installation is a “minor modification” not affecting the seat certification integrity. Installation takes little or no AOG time.
LSEAT is working with several airlines for a start in Q4/2021.
LSEAT ENGINEERING is a Belgian company designing, adaptating and producing the retrofit kit in partnership with SONACA, manufacturer of leading edges and flaps mechanisms on most AIRBUS and DASSAULT, and many BOEING and EMBRAER aircraft. For sales and distribution, a dedicated structure is growing to address airlines and MRO’s worldwide. Commercial growth is expected to be very high and quick.
