Crystal Cabin Award 2018

Check out the finalists for this year’s prestigious event

This year’s Crystal Cabin Award, the twelfth so far, saw 91 submissions in eight categories, with In-Flight Entertainment & Connectivity having been added since 2017. The jury of international experts reduced those submissions to a total of 24 products and concepts in the final round.

The characteristic Crystal Cabin Award trophies are moving with the times, being additively manufactured from aluminium using a honeycomb structure, under the auspices of FIT, a Platinum Sponsor of the Crystal Cabin Award.



1. Airbus: A320 Family Airspace Interior

Based on quantified market needs and codeveloped with airlines, the new Airbus A320 Family Airspace interior delivers market leading levels of passenger comfort while at the same time acting as a platform for airline differentiation and efficiency.

Building on the Airspace brand pillars of comfort, service ambience and design, it applies innovative design, technology and materials to elevate the single aisle flying experience to new levels.

As well as the biggest fixed bins in the sky, extra personal space, unique welcome feature, extra window visibility and bathroom comfort features, the new cabin also boasts an iconic ceiling light feature and the Airspace cross programme design language to create a true family feel.

It is available as both line fit and retrofit.


2. PriestmanGoode: Qatar Airways Qsuite

The Qatar Airways Qsuite is a unique and patented seat design that brings the First Class experience to the airline’s Business Class cabin, setting a new standard for Premium Class travel and redefining industry expectations, in tandem with the airline’s already award-winning Business Class service. PriestmanGoode was privileged to be involved in the design and build of this ground-breaking product.

First retrofitted in a Qatar Airways Boeing 777 aircraft, Qsuite features the aviation industry’s first ever double bed available in Business Class, with privacy panels that stow away, allowing passengers in adjoining seats to create their own private room. In addition, TV monitors on the centre four seats can move to allow colleagues, friends or families travelling together to transform their space into a private suite for four to work, dine or socialise together.


3. Singapore Airlines: Singapore Airlines New A380 Suites

Singapore Airlines launched its new Suite product on the Airbus A380 in December 2017. Designed with space, comfort and convenience in mind, each Suite models an all-encompassing home experience in the sky. Not only will the new Suites offer passengers a plethora of innovative and exclusive patented features, they exude unparalleled luxury and exclusivity.

The new Singapore Airlines A380 Suite is designed in collaboration with Pierrejean Design Studio, and Zodiac Seats UK as the manufacturer. >>
