Vantage Solo Logo

Business-class without compromise for single-aisle aircraft

Welcome to the new space age

The VantageSOLO has been developed and designed specifically in response to the rapidly emerging medium-to-long-range market now being serviced by a new generation of narrow-body aircraft. We are proud to say that we were the first to design and certify this type of seating product.

The VantageSOLO offers a fully horizontal flat bed with direct-aisle access for every seat. Built-in flexibility is a critical element of the VantageSOLO, allowing customers to configure the seat with either an open aisle end, a fixed privacy screen or a full-function suite door.

Such is its success that we are already working on our next-generation VantageSOLO with a number of customers across multiple single-aisle platforms.

First class 'for free'

Seamless two-class cabin configuration at business-class density

Encompassed within the VantageSOLO and VantageXL platform configurations is the possibility for two front-row first-class suites. The layout of these seats offers airlines the opportunity to provide a true first-class product whilst maintaining the same density as a traditional business-class cabin. The suite provides seamless integration with the VantageSOLO or VantageXL with no loss of cabin space and no need for additional monuments. All available with no LOPA penalty.

First-class suite

The first-class suite provides personal space for relaxation, fine dining, or sleeping.

Greater privacy

With suite doors and adjustable central privacy dividers, the suite offers enhanced levels of privacy.

Buddy seat

A buddy seat enables passengers travelling together to enjoy a fine dining experience or to use it as an office in the sky. This can also be utilised for increased sleeping surface. 

Tailor made

Configurations include extended soft side furniture, 32” monitors, additional large pull-out work surfaces for multiple working or relaxing positions.

"The extended range of the latest-generation, single-aisle aircraft such as the Airbus A321LR / XLR and Boeing MAX, with flight sectors up to eight hours, is a game changer for business-class travellers.“
Andy Morris, Chief Commercial Officer at Thompson Aero Seating
"Airlines will use these aircraft to increase frequency on key routes and/or to begin service to destinations that at least initially are not cost effective for larger, wide-bodied aircraft."
Andy Morris, SVP Commercial at Thompson Aero Seating
Regarding jetBlue's Mint Suites - "The seat, as we've explored in previous articles, is the culmination of years of development, and the Thompson Vantage Solo seat has also learned lessons from two decades of herringbone all-aisle-access Business Class products. There's swathes of space and the seats are wide, and comfortable."
