A bed and a seat, not a bed that was a seat or a seat that can be a bed. The Valkyrie Bed is a new solution to an old problem; How to make a seat also a comfortable place to sleep? When transforming a seat to a bed there is a compromise, but when each feature is allowed to serve its singular purpose we are able to focus on improving both conditions. The Valkyrie seat has infinite adjustability, allowing the passenger to position it for their body type. The passenger benefits include the first class feel with a business class price, along with the most comfortable seat in its class.
