New lie flat seat, Recaro, looks bit like "old" Virgin seat. Fold down armrest. PTV in center console, 1 piece table ....

I have seen picture, but cannot link them. recaro site shows older design seats. Introduction probably on all new aircraft and retrofit on the rest. LH is usually quick say within a year or so for the fleet.

Is it this?



From http://www.aerospace-technology.com/contractors/interiors/recaro/recaro2.html

"RECARO'S "FULL-FLAT" - PREMIUM BUSINESS CLASS SEAT
With the "Full-Flat" seat (a business class seat, sliding from up-right position to a lay flat stretched length of 79 zoll), we developed an airline passenger seat with maximum comfort within restricted space."

Yeah, that's basicly the seat.

Colors & details will be different, perhaps I forgot about the PTV position ..

hmmmm,
having a look at the back of this seat, this reminds me a bit of a rollercoaster....this does not really look that comfortable.
Which aircraft, what routes will see these seats ?
Best regards

Well that seat looks just like CX's and there is a good picture somewhere on their website of the seat but I can't find it in their Press Releases section and I'm not going to spend my time going through that website.

Well, it looks nice,
although I have read many posts of VS travellers saying they were "uninpressed" with those seats. legs were practically stuck beneath the chair in front and it was quite tricky to move out of the seat.

I wonder how much is going to be the seat pitch and if other aspects of the experiences are enhanced as well ( maybe "a la carte menu" and out whith those trays!!!)

When are these seats due for introduction? I've a flight on LH DEL-FRA on 10SEP in C/cl... too early to get these here I guess.
