Title: A PASSENGER SEATING ARRANGEMENT WITH A STOWABLE ARMREST
Abstract:
A passenger seating arrangement (1) in an aircraft cabin, the passenger seating arrangement comprising a column of seat units (C1) adjacent an aisle. The column (C1) comprises a multiplicity of seat units, each consecutive seat unit alternates between: an inwardly-facing seat unit (11a) angled at an acute angle to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft cabin; an outwardly-facing seat unit (lib) angled at the same acute angle to the longitudinal axis of the aircraft cabin but facing outwardly away from the aisle. Each seat unit comprises a foot-receiving end (25). The foot-receiving end of each inwardly-facing seat unit (11a) houses a retractable armrest (29) which is configurable between a stowed position, and a deployed position in which the armrest extends to one side away from the foot-receiving end, such that the armrest (29) provides an armrest surface for use by a passenger in the adjacent outwardly-facing seat unit (11b).
