They say keep the grief to yourself, only show the public the achievements. So here you go...
Today I was informed that my design entry has made to the short list of the Crystal Cabin Award 2018. The finalist will be announced in February. As I am existing a business, this is a much needed victory to further my career. Hope I can go further with this. If you have ever been traveling long distance internationally, and don't have deep pocket to afford a business class ticket, you know to have a decent sleep on those flight is an "impossible" dream. Well, not any more!
If you find this design is something you would like to see in reality, help me spread it to someone that can help. Share with your friend, your friends friends if you feel worthy. Thanks!
Disclaimer: Since I haven't made to Crystal Cabin Award finalist yet, I can't use their logo or link, nor this imply I am associate with them in anyway, not yet. It is merely a fact that I participated. So here we go:
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
“Equality”: Everyone can lie flat in the flight
The said design concept would have the following benefits if implement successfully:
1. All class passenger lie flat, has 100% aisle accessibility, simple TTL to lie-flat transition, and maintain comparable capacity of popular commercial aircraft. Table 1 illustrates the estimated benefit of the design comparing to typical airline offering :
Chart.png
2. World first Wide Body AND Single-aisle configuration may have a shot to become reality.
3. The core design features two sets of seats [Normal Height Seat (NHS); Elevated Height Seat (EHS)]; NHS can be converted into a passage or a lie-flat bed; EHS can be raised to create a lie-flat bed while allowing passenger to pass underneath it. Together passenger on both rows have an un-obstructed passage to access the aisle. Roller panels are utilized wherever suitable to provide privacy and safety, and save space.

Figure1: Equality Seats in TTL position

These benefits are achieved by implementing the following design innovations (The mannequins are 95% male. Some solid parts are set to be transparent for clarity):
1. Figure 1 shows 5 abreast seat per side, single aisle configuration for economy class; business class is different only by the seat width. First class is not considered due to different customer expectation, however, more capacity would be expected if proved otherwise.
2. The luggage compartment has been moved to the floor level. The EHS seats are located on top of it. For each EHS seat, two standard carryon luggage can be stored; one is accessible by the passenger on this EHS seat from the front, the other is accessible by the passenger on the NHS seat on the back.
3. Due to wall curvature of popular twin-engine aircraft, the window EHS seat is sitting lower than the other 4. The luggage arrangement under this seat is different in orientation as well. For A380 and B747 lower deck, the EHS window seat could be the same as other EHS seats, and so does the luggage compartment.

Figure 2: NHS Seat configurationfront and back
4. All NHS seats are designed into two parts, the seat and the seatback; and they are separately maneuverable. The seat cart could roll on the track on the floor, while the seatback can move up and down so that the whole seat can change from TTL to Lie-flat position. Figure 2 shows how the window passenger can open the seat and its seatback to use the passage belong to EHS when the passage on NHS row is blocked.
EHS Seats.png
Figure 3: EHS seat configurationfront and back
5. In Figure 3, all except the window seat, EHS seat can be pivoted up into the lie-flat position by hydraulic power and electric wrench (On the roof structure, not shown). This way, in either position, the passage will have at least 64”(H) X 20”(W) free space to access the aisle. The window seat pivot and rotate on a much lowered plane due to fuselage curvature. This seat is better for passenger 70” tall or less. However, it can still accommodate passenger comfortably as tall as 75”.
6. The yellow foot compartment on top of the NHS seats are for the EHS passengers on the back, while the yellow foot compartment under the EHS seats are for the NHS passengers on the back. They also provide extra carry-on luggage space for laptop bag, purse, cloth, etc.
7. Figure 4 shows the actuating cable would help hydraulic actuator to pass its dead point and provides secondary insurance of the seat actuation. It would be double as a safety measure of keeping passenger from falling off the seat. There are curtain roller (shown in Figure 3) that would be lowered and fixed to the seat frame when in position. This provides absolute safety measure and needed privacy.

这个帅!
经济舱座位越来越窄,已经是非常让人烦的趋势了。
能躺下再好不过。

放行李的地方其实还有些空,但放脚的舱里还是能放不少东西,尤其是EHS座位。

才发现你说的是“没地方放”。有啊,在EHS座位下那些篮色的,都是标准的Carry-on的行李箱。每个EHS座位下可以放两个标准行李箱。EHS座位的乘客从前面拿,他后面的NHS座位的乘客从后面拿。

Airline 都是周扒皮 - !  不仅是扒皮, 还要吸血绞肉.

United 的中短途客机现在已经把 On-Board Video 屏幕都去掉了 - 旅客想要"娱乐一下",  必须开 United 的账户, 用自己的 Mobile device 看 on board 节目.   

可想- 去掉机载的上百 Video 屏幕, United 的飞机是 "少投资, 减重量, 省燃油"  - 再来, United 的下一招 - 逼着乘客交出个人信息 - "打包待用" ...

这个趋势的确非常不好。但就象大家一窝蜂的收行李费一样,西南就不收,而且机票价格也都还很有竞争力。你猜顾客会选哪家?


话说回来我也想开个咨询帖。票价贵个一百,两百,你还会愿意坐这种座位吗?

$100-200 之间的价格 - 当然要躺下 -

UA Economic Plus seat 的价格比 Economic seat 只是多了一点点 Leg Room, 价格多出 130 -180 美元不等.

你没看明白。 前后一个躺上面, 一个躺下面, 互不干扰。
