Time Economy Seat / Aircraft Seating

Time Economy Seat
Time Economy Seat

The Time Economy Seat is an aircraft seat, which was conceived for special express short-range flights, where travelers and commuters have only carry-on luggage with themselves.
The concept was developed to speed up the boarding process and avoid luggage check-in. With an elevated seating position and a private luggage compartment beneath the seat, the Time Economy Seat provides, besides the comfortable boarding, much more space between the seat rows. The specially developed seating shells offer a seating position between sitting and standing, which is even comfortable for several hours, even for smaller people.
