Thanks for sharing, very interesting read.
I know what you mean about the ‘cocoon’ effect 🙂 I like NCW, but my equivalent of the ‘cocoon’ is stepping over or being stepped over, unless you get 62K upstairs or an equivalent.
Perhaps a better comparison is the 777 versus the 333? the 777 is 8 across, versus the 4 across in the upper deck of the 744.
Nonetheless, these seats are so comfortable that one feels to be nit picking.
