It’s name is E2 and it is the new cabin design created by Priestmangoode for Embraer. Priestmangoode is the same company responsible for both the Lufthansa and Turkish rebrandings. So what’s new? “Priestmangoode aims to take an industry benchmark cabin and make it even better by improving issues with seating space, carry-on storage, bathrooms, and more.” The cabin is expected to be available for sale beginning in 2018. Check out the video and pics below, pretty sweet for an Embraer jet!
Business Insider / Yahoo! shared some graphics as well (thanks Mark!)
The Embraer E2 cabin will have spacious seats that are also slimmer, which will make the plane lighter and allow for more free space inside the aircraft.
The seats in first class will be staggered, allowing the E2 to use the same seat track as the economy class.
You won’t have to worry about leaning over another passenger to put on your seat light: the new individual Personal Energy Supply Units (PSUs) allow you to control your air and light while remaining in your own space.
New carry-on storage integrates with the cabin ceiling, giving it a much cleaner look.
Priestmangoode even managed to increase storage capacity by 40%, without sacrificing cabin space.
Even the bathrooms received an upgrade, with acoustic curtains for privacy, handrails on internal walls, and an integrated diaper changing table.
