I wanted to fly on an A380

But the news of 11 abreast seating at AIX15 really makes me question that!   


Of course a lot of attention with airlines have been on their new First and Business products.  While Emirates have been rolling out First Apartments up front, they have been doing a narrow 9 across in their 787s.

I’ll be experiencing the more rare 3-3-3 on a 777 with BA next month, and the increasingly more common 3-4-3 on AF in June.

But an even narrow width (less than 17in) really doesn’t fill me with joy!  Of course leg room is important too…  But I can’t see an airline being generous there when ramming in 11 across…  30in pitch with 16in seat width on a long haul??  That’s worse than Ryan Air!!
