Thomson’s Family Seat (by Thomson Airways)
Originally a carrier used for charter vacations, the British airline has reinvented itself with a variety of interiors, including the forward and rear-facing family seat, centered around a single table. It's not unlike something you might find on a train, and for families looking for maximum face time on their annual getaway, it's a dream come true. The economy-class concept is one of the first to make it off the drawing board into a feasible design, and it also tackles a genuine problem found in today's travel habits: how to keep a family together, entertained and contained in one unit on an aircraft.
