My company, CHC ordered some airline seats from Augusta, but I don't think they ever got them.

You can add Rumbold to the list. They manufacture the first class seating for American Airlines 777's.

I don't know about first class seats.

Y class seats are made by dwarfs.

In addition to the ones mentioned, there are SICMA and SOCEA in France, BE Aerospace and Jepson Burns in the US. BE is the supplier of DL Business Elite, and UA and AA Business Class seats.

The 'sleeper suites' as used by the likes of BA, AA, UA and SQ cost between US$50k and US$100k each. J class seats will cost up to US$50k for a pair; and Y class seats can range from a couple of thousand US$ each to more than US$10k each depending on the IFE fit.

I don't know for definite but I think that IPECO make civilian seats. They certainly make military seats (non-ejection).

Price-wise, I think that a couple of years ago, the navigator's seat for a C-130 (a bit special - it has to swivel) was about £10000 (about US$16000). It's also the most comfortable aircraft seat I've ever used (better than business class, although narrower).
