Embraer is displaying a full-size mockup of the passenger cabin of its new E-Jet E2 airliner family for the first time in public here at the Farnborough Airshow. Visitors can view the mockup at the Embraer static display (Outdoor Exhibit 6).

During an exclusive showing for reporters on Sunday, Embraer executives said the new cabin is at an advanced stage in its design, after recommendations of an advisory board, which evaluated a previous mockup last fall, were considered. The manufacturer hopes to solicit comments on the design from customers during the airshow.

VIP cabins for narrowbody airliners have stuck to traditional approaches with little thought for the practicalities of aircraft. This is the basis upon which SR Technics (Booth 2425) set out to redefine the approach to cabin design based on what it sees as a changing customer base, with younger generations of travelers who are more casual and more tech-savvy.
