Disclaimer: This is a for profit business. ‘ Every minute cut on boarding time can save $30 per flight’ Journal of Transport Management 2008 The slowest part of ‘turning’ an Airliner is the loading and unloading of passengers. Southwest Airlines: 2 extra hrs flight time/aircraft/day $1,000,050/day saved fleet reduction of 90 aircraft
Airlines can't stay profitable Airline operations are NOT Green Airline passengers are miserable PRM’s are not catered for
People Wider aisles 3” Wider middle seat Wheelchair access Planet Less fuel wasted on ground Increased fleet utilization Profit Billions $$ saved Happier customers 15% fleet reduction Airlines try to operate their aircraft 24/7 We can reduce the ground time, increase the flying time
Of Interest to this Conference 3” Wider middle seat does not make overall 3-row seat any longer (which allows the airlines to use this seat without any regulatory hurdles) Staggered design – shoulders, elbows, thighs, not longer adjacent When seats slid over Aisle is 43 inches wide....facilitate in flight bathroom visits from front and back rows of aircraft in larger skychair/wheelchair?? Is this a problem? Convertible seat option
Airlines replace their seats every 5 years at $700,000/aircraft Our seat is the only seat on the market that recovers this cost. ROI: 1.8 yrs
Industry Endorsements include: AAPR NAAFA Boeing Airbus IATA Association of Flight Attendants

We need your help We need your feedback. As we finalize the design we need to know what features or problems you see with our design. Tray Tables, seatbelts, armrests, optimal loading procedure? We don’t know what we don’t know...... Please visit our website to contact us. www.molonlabedesigns.comwww.molonlabedesigns.com (or just google: Side-Slip Seat) www.molonlabedesigns.com And feel free to reach out to the airlines, non-profits, politicians....anyone who might help us move this idea into the airlines.
Thanks Since I first reached out Brandon (AAPR) and Peggy (NAAFA) have been huge supporters of our idea. They have publicly endorsed us and campaigned for us to the FAA and their members. So THANKS!
