New overall cabin design “puts TAM on the map”
The Brazilian flag carrier TAM, which merged with Chile’s LAN to create a Latin American aviation giant earlier in 2012, has unveiled its new cabin interiors including details aimed at making passengers feel completely at home. TAM hired design company Priestmangoode three years ago to redesign its whole on-board experience, from cabin architecture to uniforms to the toilets. The results, inspired by “everything Brazil has got to offer” will “put TAM on the map”, according to the airline’s brand manager, Ricardo Cruz.
For example, the floor pattern of the bathrooms is inspired by the Copacabana pavements of Rio de Janeiro. The economy cabin features rows of seats in bright Brazilian colours.
And the new first-class cabin recreates a “home away from home”. The four-seat cabin is designed like a living room, with a couch, dining table, an IFE screen, closets, cushions, a reading lamp, a Nespresso coffee service and even a library.
