AIRCRAFT DESIGN CONCEPT

The passenger cabin in commercial aircraft is divided into forward and aft compartments allowing the wing carry-through structure to occupy space ordinarily reserved for passengers. Benefits are a stronger, smaller, more weight-efficient wing structure, larger fuselage fineness ratio, reduced weight and drag and increased fuel economy.
