Ipeco has been selected by Boeing to design and manufacture a High Comfort Attendant Seat (HCAS) for the Boeing 777X. This deal follows on from the contract award last year for the Pilot and Observer seating for this new program. The HCAS will be offered as an option to airlines, with an anticipated selection rate of up to four seats per airplane.
This is the first time that Boeing has awarded a cabin attendant seat program to Ipeco. This win also adds to Ipeco’s growing portfolio of cabin attendant seating across various other airframer platforms.
