East Midlands Railways unveils newly designed seats for state-of-the-art Aurora fleet

Completely unique seats offering enhanced comfort
Seats easier to clean, maintain and more durable
Every passenger has access to power and USB point

Passengers travelling on East Midlands Railway?s (EMR) Aurora trains will be able to sit back and relax thanks to unique seats specifically designed for the company?s new fleet.

Working closely with Derby-based design firm DGDESIGN, EMR has taken the proven product of a FISA Lean seat and refined it to offer enhanced comfort and support. It has also improved the appearance to match what they believe customers expect from an InterCity service seat.

The seat rework has included increasing the size of cushions, headrests and armrests and making sure that high quality durable materials are used throughout, such as a wool-rich moquette and leather.

Why am I thinking they look exactly identical to the seats in the GWR 800 class  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

"We know the FISA seat has a good level of comfort, but we wanted to further enhance this......"     If it is "good" why change it ?

"enhanced comfort" ..........they will go from b****y uncomfortable to just plain uncomfortable !
