Apparently AA has cancelled all it’s remaining orders with Zodiac for it’s forthcoming 787-9’s and 777-200 retrofits. It is also taking Zodiac to court in Texas.
It says that delays in Zodiac manufacturing the seats is leading to unacceptable delays in aircraft being handed over to AA and that it is switching to another manufacturer. I guess Zodiac has some sort of patent on it’s seat design so I wonder what we will see!
The article says that AA’s cancellation took Zodiac by surprise and that they are ‘talking’.
