Ease of Storage: Instead of lifting the luggage to overhead bins, passengers store it safely and
comfortably under movable stairs.
More Storage Space: A larger number of passengers will choose carry-on luggage resulting in savings on
ground crew costs and time. Plane stays less time on the ground. Added convenience to passengers.
Faster Boarding: Passengers do not block the
aisle while storing their luggage.
The FLEX seat reduces significantly the boarding
time required for a large aircraft.
Luggage is stored and collected while passenger is
away from the aisle
Travel with Infants: no additional ticket seat required
for infants. Infant can be placed horizontally beside
passenger. This is a vast improvement from having to
hold the infant in Economy or in Business class.
Convenient Travel for Overweight Passengers:
Complaints from larger passengers (and even lawsuits)
have received media attention in the last years. The
FLEX-SEAT solves the problem of discomfort to
passengers seated adjacent to one another.
|Savings: exponential benefits through the reduction of food service costs.
With the introduction of the FLEX-SEAT there will be less need for food services on overnight flights. Most
passengers when departing late in the evening will choose to sleep rather than have a full dinner. Fewer
flight attendants needed > fewer seats reserved for crew which will result in more tickets sold.
