Herringbone seating


Herringbone seating

Herringbone seating is a type of seating layout that is commonly used in the business class section of airlines. Currently, it is used by airlines such as Air New Zealand, Virgin Atlantic and Cathay Pacific.The layout is such that each seat has direct aisle access. Instead of using the traditional method of facing the seats in the direction of travel, the seats are faced at 45°. All herringbone seats in use today have ottomans and have the ability to convert into a full flat beds.

Herringbone seats are well praised for their levels of privacy as well as their coziness. But some herringbone seats have been criticized for feeling claustrophobic.
