I also like the current seating style, in fact being 2 metres tall its one of the only business class seats that is long enough when fully flat.
However of more interest is that no reference is made to refitting the 747 fleet which possibly means:
– the fleet has a short shelf live and therefore why retrofit?
– on the London routes it’s always full so if people are still flying the old style why change it?
– or more likely they haven’t worked out how that seating style will fit on the upper deck of a 747?
Will be interesting to see what they do with the 747’s
