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

Back to Forum


Hi everyone!!

Yes, Senator the pitch in MH C cabin is very spacious, but why do MH do not use this for full flat option? Or why those airlines do not think sensible in the long term?
Of course, everyone has its own taste and liking, but for a long distance journey I still believe the option to have a full flat bed is compulsory. Most major airlines finally understand that a full flat bed would not compromise their own F class product as there are still aspects of service which they can sold as F class distinctive service and still make a difference.

Most frequent flyers who really fly very often and always be ready for their job definitely need rest and tranquility during those flights inorder to be fit for their next duties. And these pax are in general willing to pay a premium fare for it. That is why the trend to offer the new generation C class seatings goes to in a more cocoon like atmosphere with full bed. And still some airlines like US for example manage to combine those aspects of socialising and cocooning in one cabin.
So this is definitely not a revelation which is not predictable in the commercial aviation industry. It is just a matter of evolution and genius thinking in how to get the maximium space and comfort in a predetermined environment. That is why I am so demanding for the full comfort for pax, because I know there a lot of PR and product companies out there which are just waiting from the airlines to be contacted and show them their conceptions.
