So, Cathay Pacific rolls out it's new 777 Business product and gets loads of praise from all over. Now, a little over a year later, AA plans to use the same EXACT product and then it's suggested that it's similar to Envoy and Business Elite.
All three seats are technically the same . Originally, I think it was a design by Sicma. Weber may also now produce a version of the seat under license. Both are subsidiaries of Zodiac Aerospace.
Whatever the case, Delta's is the cheapest version of the seat. Very plastic looking, blue/white color scheme, almost no customization, basic shell.
USAirways seat is only slightly better if you count the faux wood embellishments.
Cathay's seat is the best of the lot. It has the best shell design of the previous two, allowing for a little compartment on the upper part of the seat for headphone storage and a mirror. It has more interesting finishes and the wingback detail for enhanced privacy from the aisle.
's seat is almost identical to Cathay's seat, though AA
hasn't made mention yet of the compartment in the upper part of the seat. It is there because they went with the Cathay shell design, but they haven't stated whether it will have any function. AA
has mentioned that their seat will have a feature that Cathay's seat does not have --- an electronically adjustable headrest.
