The new healthier cabin designs feature full divider screens staggered seats, and the removal of in-flight entertainment systems. Created by British design firm Priestmangoode. The new "pure skies" designs reinvent both business and economy class cabins to be "future-proof" against potential new pandemics. The cabins feature dirt trap-free surfaces and "colour psychology" to alleviate passenger anxiety. Seats use "photochromic and thermochromic inks" which work with new cleaning methods such as UVC and heat-cleaning, some of the seats are also staggered to offer more room to passengers. The new designs hope to future-proof the travel industry for any other health disasters.
