AIX Americas 2012: Crane provides Hydrolok seat recline system for Southwest

Crane has been selected by Southwest Airlines to provide the Hydrolok Seat Recline System for its fleet of Boeing 737-700s.The order came on the heels of Southwest’s announcement of “EVOLVE: The New Southwest Interior” an eco-friendly retrofit of the cabin’s interior. The retrofit increases seat capacity from 137 to 143.Southwest began the retrofit programme in March with completion expected by the end of 2013.“Southwest Airlines was looking for the most reliable seat recline system with the lowest cost of ownership in the industry,” said Chris Cook, Vice President of Cabin System Solutions.“We are very proud to provide them with our AL series Hydroloks, which are rugged, virtually maintenance-free and easy to install. They are a drop-in replacement for almost all current recline locks in commercial service.“And, they are backed by the longest standard warranty – with the widest global support network – in the industry,” Chris said.Steve Nichols, Inflight / Inflight-Online.comSeattle, USA
