EADS Sogerma Services unveiled details of the A380 cabin plans at last week's Aircraft Interiors Expo in Hamburg. It says the interiors will use an increased level of composites and other, undisclosed, materials to keep the weight down.

A380 manufacturer's serial number 007, which will undertake route proving, will be equipped with a first class cabin on the forward main deck, featuring 12 Class 180 pod type seats that recline to 180¡. This deck will also have a central bar area with stools, a galley and stowage areas. The business cabin on the upper deck will have 72 of Sogerma's new Evolys business class seats (which weigh less than 100kg [220lb]), three galleys, a bar unit, and two lounge areas with stowage areas and sofas, either side of the staircase.

As part of the commitment to the A380, Sogerma will establish a presence at Airbus Deutschland's completion centre in Hamburg.
