Where Do Old Airline Seats Go to Die?

Where do old airline seats go to die?

Many airlines are replacing older seats with new lighter, slimmer models. So where do old airline seats go to die? In the case of Alaska Airlines, old seat covers are not languishing in landfills. Instead, they’re being turned into carry-on and other bags.


The discarded leather material from AS seats finds its way to the creative folks over at Mariclaro and, from there are transformed into carry-on bags, computer bags, purses and more.

The different styles of bags use airport codes for their names, so you can choose from options like the JFK or the SEA. Canada gets an excellent shout-out, with the YYZ a briefcase/satchel that innovatively features a seat belt buckle closure.

Much of the leather has come from the refresh of the AS fleet, as new seats have started to appear on some of their Boeing 737s.

The bags are part of the Atlas Collection. They are made to order and take about 5 weeks. Too late for this Christmas, but a great gift for travel lovers everywhere.
