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.

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.
