Business Class seating as much as 100% while providing additional benefits:
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.
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

Elbow room.

Added comfort and privacy when working on a laptop or eating

Passengers enjoy freedom from discomfort caused by the seat in
front of them reclining into their space.

Lower Health Risks

circulation issues (deep vein thrombosis).
Flight attendant has safe and comfortable access to
passenger on upper level.

MARKET

Conversion is achieved by folding the steps into the upper
level
