South American airline LATAM has unveiled new cabin interiors. These will roll out across the entire fleet over the next two years, improving the passenger experience.
The design was contracted to PriestmanGoode, who are also responsible for WestJet’s new Boeing 787-9 interiors as well as Qatar Airways’ much lauded business class QSuite.
LATAM Business Class Cabin Interiors
Customised Thompson seating was selected for the business class cabin. This will allow all passengers direct aisle access for the first time.
Featuring an 18 inch personal screen and a granite cocktail table, the seats lie flat and provide plenty of space. A customised version of the seat is also in service with Australian airline Qantas.
Arranged in a 1-2-1 configuration, it replaces the current 2-2-2 seating in this cabin. The new cabin interiors are due to debut early this year.
LATAM Economy Class Cabin Interiors
Economy Class and LATAM+ have not been forgotten either. Inspired by the South American coastline, the colours represent the ocean and sand dunes.
Seats in these cabins feature personal entertainment screens as well as USB outlets for device charging. It is a decent improvement over the current offering.
The oneworld alliance carrier has excellent coverage throughout South America. LATAM came about through the merger of Chile’s LAN and Brazil’s TAM, and there are other related divisions in Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay and Peru.
Seating in business class provides options for solo travellers in the window seats and for couples in the middle section. It brings the airline’s on board product up to date with current trends.
