wessley hurt. First Class Interiors. May 20th , 2018.
Not everyone needs to personalise their private jet to indulge their taste for luxury. Some people are quite content to merely fly first-class provided their every whim is catered to and their every comfort is assured. Airlines such as Etihad have cottoned on to the needs of the super rich and have taken first-class flying to stratospheric levels. Even Etihad`s economy class is designed to make travellers feel more like valued customers and less like cattle bound for slaughter.
The Boeing 767-300 for our flight was C-GBZR a former Canadian Airlines aircraft which still retained its dark blue Canadian Airlines interior which in my opinion is not as nice as Air Canada`s Business Class interior. The Business-Class cabin seating was comfortable with ample pitch configured with five rows of 1-2-2. However the seats are not fully-reclining as compared to the Business-Class seats on most other Air Canada 767-300s which recline to near flat.
Only specific materials can be used even for private aircraft interiors. For example all materials are required to have an 8110-3 which means they need to pass FAA burn requirements. 2-D and 3-D modeling software allows the customer to preview colors textures patterns and materials. The final stage of this software is a photorealistic 3-D rendering showing the customer a true colour visualization of how the new interior environment will look and feel. This rendering along with the colour board of materials is a complete package for jet interior design.
This is the starting point from which airlines can then build their own identity commissioning companies like Design Q to work on quality aircraft interior styling material specification and bespoke trimming for VIP interiors or airline cabin interiors. Upholstery specification consultants are important contributors to an airlines image.
