Design. When it comes to design, the Senator II delivers. Engineered to accommodate a variety of seating arrangements, including wheelchair accessibility and various storage options in luggage, the Senator II gives you the versatility you need to meet your passengers’ needs.

Wide aisles and doors for easy accessibilty, spacious luggage racks, large windows and straight side wall construction to maximize passenger shoulder space are just some of the benefits of the Senator II.
