Who Makes The New VS Upper Class Seats?

Mon Jul 26, 2004 7:32 am

This seems to be a mystery not answered by the internet. Which of the major interior manufacturers makes the Upper Class Suite? (AVIO, PTC, Recaro, etc.)

Also, is it the same company who is making UAL's new suites?

EADS Sogerma Services is the one doing the installation to the A340s, but I don't beleive they also made it.
Don't bring up the NW DC9's unless you have to!

I am pretty sure that the old maker of the US seats is not doing the suites, but I believe that they are still making the bar.

Just to expand on what Airchabum has said, it is the same Britax that make childrens cars seats too, just a differant department.

I can see it now: Little children in mini-VS UC Suit seats.  Laugh out loud

It's interesting to note that the UCS is designed by the company who created the British Airways FIRST suite and Club World flat beds.

It's actually Contour Premium Aircraft Seating, which is a member of the Britax Premium Aircraft Interior Group.

I had no idea UAL was looking at putting new suites in their airplanes. Does anyone have a link where I can get more info. I don't need a link because I don't believe the info, I am just interested in this. Thanks
