Reply To: New Gen Bus.Class Seating: Social seating versus Cocooning

Back to Forum


Hi everyone!!

Thanks Senator and Simon for your posts. But what surprises me from your comments are the facts that the old F from LH or the old C from CO are great or still good. Do not get me wrong here( not all old things are bad), but what is the point of having a refurbishment for premium sittings and cost million of money and then in the end to get the response of the pax that the older /previous ones are better. This is definitely a PR “catastrophe en masse”
I know everyone sleep differently. Some want full flat others are happy with lie flat angled and enjoy sliding down. Others just appreciate the old fashion style of “lounge sitting”. Yes, the older seats offered more socialising and less privacy, while the new gen seats is more pod-like-high partition seat which is totally opposite of the old seats.
In my opinion the deception on new premium seatings are UA C class, CX C class and all the new so-called premium C class with lle flat angled sliding obstacle course.
