3(+3) abreast seats developed for Embraers or just a random picture?

Fri Jan 15, 2021 5:15 pm

in this article https://www.flightglobal.com/systems-and-interiors/safran-expands-seat-options-for-e-jet-family/141981.article, new seats for Emrbaer E-jets are described. They are developed by Safran, but in the article there is a picture of a block of 3 seats... which i do not find possible for E-jets. Is is just a matter of random picture chosen by the journalist or what???

The seat comes in 2 and 3 seat sets. The journalist just used the stock 3 seat version image from the manufacturers website.

This is what it is supposed to look like in an Embraer:

It's just the manufacturers choice for the PR campaign. Customers will select their own colours.

I like the leather seats on the E-jets, really comfy !!

These ones seem to be harsh on your bu.. I mean, your back ! LOL

Shhhh don't give them ideas! In a few years some airlines might just figure out how to cram 6 abreast in an E-Jet :o
You can always go around

So, all in all - confirming that the proposed set up, by Safran - is the use of 4 seats with a central aisle (between them).

New, nice, and gorgeous - and would integrate well with Embraer's design cues, notes and concepts for the E2 line.

I cannot though, find the seat's width, and the proposed seat pitch for the cabin as proposed above - from their information listed in their press release.

Somewhat off topic, but is there a reason most E-Jets have the same Y seats? Was there only one type of seat that was certified?

AA, BA, AC, BA, DL, B6, VA, AD, LO all look to have the same seat. The only other variation I see is the horrible design that both UA and AS have with no padding whatsoever.
RJ85, F70, E135, E140, E145, E70, E75, E90, CR2, CR7, CR9, 717, 732, 733, 734, 735, 73G, 738, 739, 744ER, 752, 753, 762, 763ER, 772, 77E, 77W, 789, 319, 320, 321, 332, 333, 343, 359, 388

I think it was a lack of other options. KLM is putting the horrible seat they fitted in the 4 newest 737s in the E2s they are getting soon.

I think I recall hearing that certain Delta Connection, Skywest, E175s have a different seat from earlier E175s, like the ones operated by Republic and Compass.

Seat width is determined by the Seat Manufacturer, Seat Pitch by the Operator; so, since it was a Safran PR Release, they won't say the Pitch since it's out of their control.
