Are Airlines About To Get New Social Distancing Seats? This Startup Thinks So 

Courtesy of ZeroHedge View original post here.

A startup company by the name Zephyr Aerospace has designed a "social distancing compliant seat for airlines." 

The company launched a funding round on Republic Note, offering accredited investors under Rule 506(c) to buy into the dream of revolutionizing airline seating for a post-virus world. 

So far, the startup has raised $266,000 out of its $1,070,000 top goal. The seats are easily retrofittable into Boeing and Airbus commercial aircraft will also increase ancillary revenue for airlines by at least 30%. 

The startup said there's a significant problem with airline seats. They haven't changed in nearly five decades. All Economy Class seats are fixed upright and difficult to sleep in, forcing "unnatural postures over long periods of time and can damage health," the startup said. 

The new double-decker seat design allows travelers the ability to lie flat while maintaining social distancing compliance. 

The startup said, "we are currently in direct discussions with commercial airlines, seating manufacturers, and OEMs (Airbus, Boeing) to bring the Zephyr Seat to market."

We noted a couple of months ago that the future of economy class cabins could be reshaped in a social distancing world. 

It's unlikely airlines will adopt Zephyr's double-decker lie-flat, social distancing seats until after or right before a recovery in the air travel industry, which could take 2-3 years
