Sir - In your Passenger Portfolio seating review (RG 2.01 p98), you include a photograph of our Rica Basic seat. Unfortunately, there is no reference to our company in the article, but only to another Finnish manufacturer. I am concerned that this might lead to a possible misunderstanding among your readers.

The Rica Basic has a modular structure, with a vandal-proof stainless steel frame and quick snap-on changeable seat cushions. It has proved very successful, and we have supplied more than 20000 of them to Finnish Railways.
