Fully flat business-class comfort with maximised cabin efficiency

The Vantage offers a fully flat bed and maximum passenger comfort while still maintaining cabin density. An innovative and highly efficient design, the Vantage is adaptable across single- and twin-aisle platforms.

We have developed the next generation Vantage seat with great attention to sustainability. We have collaborated with four industry-leading suppliers that are actively engaged in looking at alternative materials and processes leading to increased sustainable manufacturing: 

Undyed wool fabrics minimise water-use and the need for bleaching and chemical dying. Recycled plastics support circularity and waste reduction while the lowest-carbon aviation leathers produce zero waste. Carpets use recycled nylon and a PVB binder, which are fully recyclable and offer the advantages of a lightweight product.
