This New Blended Cabin Could Introduce the World’s First Lay-Flat Premium Economy Seat

Formation Design’s blended cabin is part of a new trend of designers proposing that airlines think beyond tradition cabin class marketing. The notion of a lay-flat Premium Economy is exciting. If Henshaw feels measured optimism that airlines could take the next big leap forward—we’ll join him in that optimism. (We’ll still take tiny breaths until it happens, though. We wouldn’t want to pass out while we wait.)

Airlines design their planes around their sales and marketing models, but it’s the comfort features that count in the long-haul. When booking, we look at everything, front to back, in the seat and beyond, and choose the best value suited to our itinerary. Because you’ll mostly find us in the Economy cabin, we take advantage of the personal well-being and environmental benefits of newer aircraft, where available.

Vertical seat design (3D) offers a way to make more passengers happy than horizontal lay-out alone can accomplish. It’s unfamiliar. It’s odd-looking. That makes it a little bit scary, to some. But, after 100 years of flight, perhaps it’s time for a radical change in direction.
