Thompson Aero, known to develop seats that are cutting-edge, and Factorydesign, an airline product designer, has created a new business class suite for single-aisle jets traveling internationally. For the most part, business suites are only found on the larger jets such as the A380s, Dreamliners, and Boeing 777s, however, Thompson Aero’s new Vantage Solo suite is the perfect creation for smaller aircraft including the Boeing 737, A320 and A321XL(R)s.

Set to debut later this year, the Vantage Solo angled business suite was revealed at the Crystal Cabin Award, featuring a door for complete privacy, a large entertainment screen that pulls out for perfect viewing, and a seat that converts into a fully-flat bed without compromising cabin space. The design also offers ample space for working or distributing and storing personal belongings for easy accessibility and within arm’s reach.

The VP of Sales and Marketing for Thompson Aero, Andy Morris, says the airline that will offer the new Vantage Solo business class seat will not be the only one. In a year to a year and a half, other airlines will be able to select the new Vantage Solo business suite once Thompson Aero has completed the certification stage. There are two Vantage Solo seat options that carriers can opt for—either one with a privacy screen that doesn’t move or one with sliding doors.

The airline that will install the new Vantage Solo seat has yet to be revealed, but we can’t wait to see which carrier will feature this seat on their single-aisle aircraft. And out of the two Vantage Solo seat options, this unknown airline has selected the version with a sliding door.
