  • Patent number: 10994846
    Abstract: A functional unit in a passenger cabin includes a support unit and a passenger seat system. The passenger seat system is formed in two parts and has an upper constructional unit and a lower constructional unit that are each separate components, the upper constructional unit arranged on the support unit and containing at least one backrest, and the lower constructional unit containing a seat frame, at least one seat element and restraint for the passenger on the seat. The seat frame is fastenable to seat rails on the floor of a passenger cabin. For the use position, the upper and lower constructional units are positioned such that a passenger seat is formed. In the use position, personal comfort for the individuals on the seats is not impaired as far as possible, and the division of the seat system into two parts cannot be seen by the user.

  • Patent number: 10934000
    Abstract: A passenger seat arrangement for installation in an aircraft comprises a seat unit with a backrest element and a seat element. The seat arrangement also comprises a supporting frame carrying the seat unit and comprising at least one seat mounting, which has a first backrest holder, to which the backrest element can be releasably fixed in a load-transferring manner in a first position on the seat mounting, and a second backrest holder, to which the backrest element can be releasably fixed in a load-transferring manner in a second position on the seat mounting. When the passenger seat arrangement is installed in the aircraft, the backrest element is pivoted in relation to a longitudinal axis of the aircraft in a state in which it is fixed to the first backrest holder relative to a state in which it is fixed to the second backrest holder.

  • Patent number: 10723459
    Abstract: An overhead bin for an aircraft comprises a base unit that is designed to fasten the overhead bin to a retaining structure of the aircraft, and a mounting unit that is connected to the base unit. By way of the mounting unit, a stowage space of the overhead bin can be accessed. The base unit provides a first stowage space region, and the mounting unit provides a second stowage space region that together with the first stowage space region forms the stowage space of the overhead bin.

  • Patent number: 9550572
    Abstract: A device for separating two zones of a passenger cabin including a frame element and an area element which is fastened to said frame element and includes, at least in certain sections, a flexible stretch material. The separating device is detachably fastenable in such a way to a passenger seat installed in the passenger cabin, that the area element extends substantially in one plane with a backrest of the passenger seat and that the section of the area element which includes of a flexible material is transferrable from a non-tensioned physical state into a flexibly stretched physical state in the event of the backrest of the passenger seat being adjusted from an upright position into a reclined position.

  • Patent number: 9227728
    Abstract: An aircraft cabin partition monument comprising a partition wall element and a stowage compartment. The stowage compartment includes a cover plate element and at least one sidewall element. The stowage compartment is convertible between a state of rest, wherein the cover plate and the sidewall element extend substantially parallel to the partition wall element, and a state of operation, wherein the cover plate element and the sidewall element extend relative to the partition wall element such that the cover plate element and the sidewall element define a stowage space arranged adjacent to the partition wall element.
