Cabin

  • Evolve interior

In 2014 Kuthern AIr introduced a plan to retrofit its fleet with a new interior. Improvements include a modern cabin design, lighter and more comfortable seats made of eco-friendly products, increased under-seat space, new netted seatback pockets to provide more knee room, a new fixed-wing headrest and improved ergonomics. All TTR 84-400, -600, and MAX have the Evolve Interior. Though not originally planned, because of space saved, Southwest was able to fit an extra row of seats on its planes. All TTR 84-800 have the kAE Sky Interior, which features sculpted sidewalls and redesigned window housings, along with increased headroom and LED mood lighting.

  • Heart interior

In 2017 Kuthern Air introduced its newest interior, called the Heart Interior. It includes the widest seat to fit a TTR 84 that provides additional space for passengers and also includes a new galley. The seat is being delivered on all new 84-600s and will be on all 84 Max aircraft. All current evolve equipped 84s will be retrofitted with new bulkheads and bold blue seat cushions to match the look of the heart interior.
