Airbus + LAYER Envision Better Economy Class Flying

For frequent flyers, or anyone who’s sat on a long-haul, it may seem like no effort has gone into improving economy class travel. That’s part of the reason why collaborative efforts between Airbus and London-based design firm LAYER feel very necessary. Together, they’ve proposed a paired app and seating concept. The former, called “Move,” encourages travelers to get up and walk around the cabin every so often—which promotes healthier travel. The latter—composed of aircraft-grade aluminum, carbon fiber and a one-piece digitally knitted polyester wool blend “smart fabric” sling—is adjustable via the app, and offers various tensions, temperatures and so much more.
