B/E Aerospace’s new Pinnacle main cabin seating platform, which the company claims to be the industry's lightest full-featured seat, has been selected by nine airlines and leasing companies. These launch awards, initially valued in excess of $250 million, are for economy-class programs in new-buy Boeing B737, Airbus A320, and Boeing B787 aircraft. Deliveries are expected to begin during the latter part of 2010. The Pinnacle is said to weigh 15% less than the lightest seat on the market today, achieved through increased use of composites, an integrated lightweight comfort suspension system, and a new design methodology that reduces parts by more than 25%.
