Description

CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS



[0001] This application is related to and claims priority benefits from U.S. Provisional Application Serial No. 62/094,804 ("the '804 application"), filed on December 19, 2014, entitled LAVATORY, FIRST CLASS AND BUSINESS CLASS SEAT INTEGRATION.

FIELD OF THE INVENTION



[0002] The field of the invention relates to an arrangement of seat units for vehicle cabins.

BACKGROUND



[0003] Commercial aircraft, such as the Airbus A320 or Boeing 737 are typically constructed from modular components, the size, weight and construction of which are dictated by many considerations, including fuselage dimensions, aesthetic and safety considerations. Many of these requirements are imposed by law or regulation. Aircraft components, such as overhead stowage compartments, seats, lavatories, galleys, lighting systems, etc. are all required to function within strictly confined spaces.

[0004] Manufacturers of aircraft are constantly refining interior aircraft designs to achieve more comfort and utility for passengers and crew within carrier-imposed restraints on cost, weight, maintenance down-time, and safety. Commercial passenger aircraft generally include lavatories for use by passengers and crew. Many aircraft cabin layouts also include different seat classes (e.g., business class, first class, economy class) installed therein. The classes are often separated from each other by monuments, dividers, etc. As illustrated in Figure 1, this leads to the loss of space in between the different monuments, dividers and seats.

[0005] US 2012/0228902 A1 discloses a seating arrangement for a passenger-carrying vehicle, especially aircraft. The arrangement provides a plurality of seating positions, a seating position comprising a seat and a footwell. The footwell of a first seating position is located beside the seat of a second seating position, the second seating position being located generally forward of the first seating position. Each seat is operable into a reclined state in which a leg-supporting component of the seat projects into the associated footwell.

[0006] WO 2014/014780 A2 discloses a space efficient lavatory module for commercial aircraft that includes an aft facing concave wall recess that provides a greater distance from an upper, forward facing portion of a cabin structure, such as an aircraft passenger seat to avoid having a passenger's head impact the aft facing lavatory or enclosure wall in a sudden aircraft deceleration. The aft facing concave wall recess also provides space for mounting of a protective cushion, in order to reduce a passenger's risk of head trauma in a sudden deceleration, as well as other items, such as a video monitor, a bassinet or infant bed, without inhibiting passenger movement.

[0007] US 2005/0211837 A1 discloses a set of aircraft seats to outfit an aircraft cabin, comprising at least two columns of neighboring seats. The seats are arranged one behind the other in each of the columns of seats. Moreover, each seat can be converted into a sleeper so as to present a considerably stretched out sleeping surface. Each seat when converted into a sleeper, has a first sleeping portion and at least a second sleeping portion that is narrower than the first. In two neighboring columns, the seats are staggered, in such a way that the first part of a seat of a column is facing a second portion of a seat of the second column that is narrower in width.
Document XP055507751 discloses an aircraft cabin arrangement comprising business class seat units.

[0019] The subject matter of embodiments of the present invention is described here with specificity to meet statutory requirements, but this description is not necessarily intended to limit the scope of the claims. The claimed subject matter may be embodied in other ways, may include different elements or steps, and may be used in conjunction with other existing or future technologies. This description should not be interpreted as implying any particular order or arrangement among or between various steps or elements except when the order of individual steps or arrangement of elements is explicitly described.

[0020] While the embodiments of seat units may be described with reference to an aircraft cabin, they are by no means so limited. In fact, the seat units may be used in conjunction with any type of vehicle cabin or otherwise as desired.

[0021] According to certain embodiments of the present invention, as illustrated in Figures 2-7, a cabin 10 comprises an aircraft cabin arrangement 12 formed by at least one lavatory unit 14, at least one first class seat unit 16, and at least one business class seat unit 18.

[0022] In these embodiments, the lavatory unit 14 comprises a first side wall 1402 and a second side wall 1404. According to the invention, the first side wall 1402 comprises a monument 1406, which includes a sink 1408 and a counter 1410. Thus, a person inside the lavatory unit 14 may make use of the area above the counter 1410 and sink 1408. The first side wall 1402 has an irregular shape, as shown in Figures 2, 6-7, with a protruding portion 1412 and a recessed portion 1414. The protruding portion 1412 is shaped to contour the portion of the monument 1406 requiring greater depth for the sink 1408, and the recessed portion 1414 is shaped to contour the portion of the monument 1406 that requires less depth.

[0023] In embodiments, the first class seat unit 16 comprises a seat back 1602 and a seat pan 1604. According to the invention, the seat unit 16 comprises also a secondary seat or foot rest 1606. The seat back 1602 and the seat pan 1604 are partially surrounded by a shell 1608. A recessed area 1610 may be located within the shell 1608 to one side of the seat back 1602 and the seat pan 1604. The shell 1608 may be configured to also at least partially surround the foot rest 1606.

[0024] According to the invention, as illustrated in Figure 2, 6-7, the first class seat unit 16 is positioned adjacent the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14. In this arrangement, the foot rest 1606 is positioned within and coupled to the recessed portion 1414 of the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14. The shell 1608 may also couple to an end of the recessed portion 1414 of the first side wall 1402 to provide continuity to the enclosure for to the first class seat unit 16.

[0025] As a result, the recessed portion 1414 of the lavatory unit 14 is fully utilized for the foot rest 1606 and a separate wall between the lavatory unit 14 and the first class seat unit 16 is eliminated. In certain embodiments, the first side wall 1402 may further include some or all of the foot rest 1606, a monitor, sockets, stowage, and/or any other first class amenity typically provided within the front wall of a first class seat unit 16.

[0026] The business class seat unit 18 comprises a seat back 1802, a seat pan 1804, and a foot well 1806. The seat back 1802 and the seat pan 1804 are partially surrounded by a shell 1808. A recessed area 1810 may be located within the shell 1808 to one side of the seat back 1802 and the seat pan 1804.

[0027] In certain embodiments, as illustrated in Figures 2-7, the business class seat unit 18 may be positioned adjacent the shell 1608 of the first class seat unit 16. In this arrangement, the foot well 1806 may be positioned within and coupled to the recessed area 1610 in the shell 1608 of the first class seat unit 16. As a result, the recessed area 1610 is fully utilized for the foot well 1806 and a separate wall between the first class seat unit 16 and the business class seat unit 18 is eliminated.

[0028] In other words, the shell 1608 of the first class seat unit 16 has taken on the function of a business class seat unit 18 front row monument. In certain embodiments, the shell 1608 may further include some or all of the foot well 1806, a monitor, sockets, stowage, and/or any other business class amenity typically provided within a front row monument of a business class seat unit 18.

[0029] In further embodiments, an economy class seat unit (not shown) may be positioned adjacent the shell 1808 of the business class seat unit 18 or adjacent the shell 1608 of the first class seat unit 16. As a result, a separate wall between the economy class seat unit and either the business class seat unit 18 or the first class seat unit 16 is eliminated.

[0030] In this arrangement, the shell 1808 of the business class seat unit 18 or the shell of the first class seat unit 16 may function as an economy class seat unit front row monument. In certain embodiments, the shell 1808 or the shell 1608 may further include some or all of a monitor, sockets, stowage, tray table, and/or any other economy class amenity typically provided within a front row monument of an economy seat unit.

[0031] In further embodiments, the business class seat unit 18 may be positioned adjacent the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14. In this arrangement, the foot well 1806 may be positioned within and coupled to the recessed portion 1414 of the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14. As a result, the recessed portion 1414 of the lavatory unit 14 is fully utilized for the foot well 1806 and a separate wall between the lavatory unit 14 and the business class seat unit 18 is eliminated. As a result, the first side wall 1402 may further include some or all of the foot well 1806, a monitor, sockets, stowage, and/or any other business class amenity typically provided within a front row monument of a business class seat unit 18.

[0032] In further embodiments, an economy class seat unit (not shown) may be positioned adjacent the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14. As a result, a separate wall between the lavatory unit 14 and the economy class seat unit is eliminated. In this arrangement, the first side wall 1402 of the lavatory unit 14 may function as an economy class seat unit front row monument. As a result, the first side wall 1402 may further include some or all of a monitor, sockets, stowage, tray table, and/or any other economy class amenity typically provided within a front row monument of an economy seat unit.

[0033] In the embodiments where the shell of one seat unit is used to also function as a divider between two classes of seat units, the shell may be modified to include a vertical panel 22. The vertical panel 22 is shaped to extend upward toward the ceiling of the cabin to a greater height than the remainder of seat unit. In some embodiments, an upper surface 2202 and at least one side surface 2204 of the vertical panel 22 may be shaped to contour to the surface of the cabin. The vertical panel 22 may further include a substantially straight surface 2206, which may border an aisle 20. Thus, from the perspective of a passenger seated in the seat unit located behind the shell, the vertical panel 22 provides the appearance of a separate divider wall positioned between the classes.

[0034] Any suitable arrangement of seat units may be used with the arrangement 12. For example, the seat units 16, 18 may be angled, staggered, forward facing, aft facing, or any combination thereof. Furthermore, arrangement 12 may be used with both central seats (seats positioned between aisles) and lateral seats (seats positioned between an aisle and a wall of the cabin), as well as seats facing longitudinally or traversely.

[0035] By eliminating the monuments, dividers, etc. between classes in the cabin, the arrangement 12 gains additional longitudinal space within the cabin 10 in the range of about 25.4 millimetres to about 1016 millimetres (1 inch to about 40 inches), further in the range of 381 millimetres to about 635 millimetres (15 inches to about 25 inches), and even further in the range of about 508 millimetres (20 inches).

[0036] Different arrangements of the components depicted in the drawings or described above, as well as components and steps not shown or described are possible. Similarly, some features and sub-combinations are useful and may be employed without reference to other features and sub-combinations. Embodiments of the invention have been described for illustrative and not restrictive purposes, and alternative embodiments will become apparent to readers of this patent. Accordingly, the present invention is not limited to the embodiments described above or depicted in the drawings, and various embodiments and modifications may be made without departing from the scope of the claims below.
