A premiere for Recaro’s CL6710 business class seat

// An enchanting travel experience in the Dreamliner

SCHWAEBISCH HALL, Germany – Following its acclaimed presentation in 2014, the new business class seat for long-haul routes from Recaro Aircraft Seating is now being installed for the first time – in a Boeing 787 Dreamliner whose cabin is fully equipped with Recaro aircraft seats. The award-winning seat stands out with its appealing design, a full-flat bed and direct aisle access.

The CL6710 seat’s length, width and different seat positions invite passengers to stretch out and relax. At the push of a button, the seating area transforms into a recliner or even a full-flat bed. Position changes, which are carried out at an optimal, predefined angle, ideally and safely support the passenger’s body at all times. As well, the CL6710 offers each passenger their own separate space with direct aisle access.

“Our CL6710 business class seat leaves nothing to be desired for a pleasant long-distance flight,” says Dr. Mark Hiller, Chief Executive Officer and Shareholder at Recaro Aircraft Seating. “We provide passengers with ergonomic comfort and superb spaciousness – in an attractively lightweight seat. Additionally, the CL6710 is distinguished by its high-quality design and very efficient use of space in the cabin.” The CL6710 long-distance seat was developed at the Recaro headquarters in Schwaebisch Hall and is currently also being manufactured there.

Customization to specific requirements

The CL6710 business class seat is taking off for the first time in the Boeing 787 Dreamliners from the airline EL AL which just recently presented the new aircraft to the public. The upper stowage compartment as well as the design of the CL6710 were adapted to the customer's specific requirements. The airline will be equipping 15 model B787-9 and B787-8 aircraft with Recaro seats, and others are planned. In addition to the CL6710, Recaro’s PL3530 and the CL3710 seats are also being deployed in the premium economy and economy classes.
