A very nice concept! I also like the fact that in the J configuration you can also get two people sitting next to each other to have a casual discussion.
Interesting the first design is herringbone style but more variable in its movements. Could not open the 2nd one
Yes - the 787 seating on AC is ok - fresher - but not sure if I like it better that the current 777 J
I too could not open the 2nd link
Actually, I heard Recaro was rolling out new Y- seats based on this:
I like the lumbar area massage!
I get free massages by riding Embraer 120s on UA.
Don't see this happening any time soon. Specifically for Air Canada considering they've already announced their new seat configuration and have it flying regularly on the 787.
This idea of a premium economy that can convert to J seems more like something that would interest LCC like Jetstar or even a carrier like Lufthansa, though again I don't see them updating their J configuration as they are just expanding their new seat to more aircraft.
The airline where this would work really well is Hawaiian. They could use the same aircraft for their 5 hour flights as well as their 10 hour flights and for the shorter flights use the 4 abreast in the middle version and on the longer flights use the flat bed option. It would be a huge improvement on what they currently offer.
