JETLINER CABINS: Evolution & Innovation chronicles interiors from the 1970s to the present and onward to the future. The legendary Boeing 747 and the supersonic Concorde are among the jetliners covered in detail. Topics include jetliner cabin design and function; environmental ‘green’ advances, maintenance and safety regulations; accessibility; post-pandemic cabin-health upgrades; and passenger comfort standards in the First, Business, and Economy-class cabins and Concorde. How do they decide the shape and style of the seat, the legroom, the cushioning, the drop-down table, and look and feel of the interior while keeping in mind passenger health and safety and the demands of the flying environment? There are many challenges faced in the layout of such a tight space, and the solutions and design ideas surprise at every turn.

Jennifer Coutts Clay will discuss these topics as Moderator of the Cabin Refurbishment session in the Cabin Space Live programme at the annual Aircraft Interiors EXPO (AIX) in Hamburg, Germany on 28 May 2024.
