A split-level seating device for elevating and mounting alternate rows of seats for aircraft, surface transportation or for stationary applications, as a means to gain greater seating comfort and to increase overall seating capacity, by pre-empting otherwise unutilized or inefficient spatial displacement within such vehicles, to enable every sitter a lower seating position and every sitter to raise the legs at or above the level of the torso. A modular pedestal raises every other row of seats with their corresponding cross-aisle walkways at a sufficient height to provide legroom for floor level sitter, said module incorporating a legrest extension for upper level sitter, including the means for affixing state-of-the-art safety, sanitary and conveniency devices, such as safety crash-absorbing air bags and high-security kevlar lining, oxygen dispensers, purge vents and ultra-violet light outlets to cleanse the environment, moveable and adjustable footrests, eating-writing surfaces, and audio-visual entertainment and communications devices. The manner following convention of mounting arrays of massed seats at floor level is improved upon by elevating alternate rows of seats by means of said modular devices, all seats, both floor and split-level, being accessed from the same floor surface.
