The July issue of Aircraft Cabin Management is now online

Posted on 26 June 2018


The July issue of Aircraft Cabin Management is now online


In our summer issue, we take a look at the role that paint plays in cabin finishing, both in terms of functionality and aesthetics, with good quality paint remaining a strong alternative to coloured plastics, composites and films.



With projects spanning industries varying from construction and consumer products to retail and telecommunications, London-based design consultancy tangerine have been involved in trailblazing projects in the aircraft cabin, including the first ever fully flat bed in business class for British Airways and a six-way headrest for Cathay Pacific.


Meanwhile, tangerine worked with brand consultant Saffron for Gulf Air's new cabin on its Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners. Drawing from heritage and modern Bahrani cultural references, the new cabin concept will also be adapted for the airlines incoming fleet of A320neo and A321neo aircraft.
