Shortlisted, Crystal Cabin Award 2022
PARADYM™ > > SHIFT TO THE FUTURE
Travel is a vitamin for the soul. It enriches our lives in so many ways. The need to keep air travel attractive to passengers and profitable for airlines, while reducing carbon footprint, creates impetus for innovation. With this in mind, LIFT Aero Design proposes PARADYM™, a new way of thinking about next-generation single-aisle cabins. Taking advantage of improved aircraft economics, PARADYM™ would feature a wide single-aisle fuselage, with comfortable, flexible seating that helps airlines maximize revenue opportunities while lowering costs.
PARADYM™ FOR RIGHT NOW
Spring 2022: the "new normal" is 15-16 hours nonstop East Asia < > Europe (previously 12-13), 17 hours Hong Kong < > east coast of North America. Higher fuel costs imply higher fares, yet with no increase in comfort level in the "back of the bus". And this is likely to be reality for quite some time. Will the ultra-long-haul economy class comfort bar need to rise to compensate for the extra hours and higher prices?
PARADYM™ could be leveraged to define a new comfort standard for today's ultra-long-haul markets, a segment that is now suddenly much larger than before. Nearly as wide as a quad, the extra wide triple would deliver built-in flexibilty to be sold as economy, premium economy or "economy flat".
