Boeing invented a new kind of insulation to deal with the noise. In addition, the newer engines are quieter than the old ones. I'm sure the 777X will be noticeably less noisy than a 777-300ER.
Feb 28, 2019, 07.21 PM / British Airways to fly the Boeing 777X from 2022
For Business class, I honestly think Qantas' 787 product, but perhaps a little wider, would be perfectly acceptable. For First, something like Emirates new 1-1-1 suites would also be perfectly acceptable. Honestly, a revised version of QF's current A380 First could be a good place to start... spa...

You could actually have something like an Apex Suite but increase the density substantially by using Formation Design's "Passage" Suites (think like a hybrid of Apex Suites and BA's Club World). Not to mention, Aviointeriors offers 5-abreast flatbeds with direct aisle access in narrowbodies (thei...

I think its clear we're seeing several trends at play. First class is getting more scarce. Airlines are also trying to create more 'product tiers' to segment the market more accurately. Business class is also getting a lot better, and fewer corporates are permitting "first class" travel. The "bus...
Feb 12, 2019, 12.56 PM / The rise of the 'business class only' airport lounge
Ehhh, the A320neo isn't too uncomfortable, so its nothing to worry about. The real source of the discomfort would be the lack of booze...I'd worry if they were flying a 737 on this route. But A320s are more tolerable on longer flights.
Jan 18, 2019, 11.41 PM / Royal Brunei will fly to Brisbane from June
I'm going to play spoiler and suggest that Virgin may go for a slightly more compact product than the Delta One Suites.Why? Virgin need to fit in a bar (unlike DL), have lots of leisure traffic, appeal to a younger market, and have stiff competition. So my speculation is that Virgin will go for t...

Mar 24, 2018, 12.25 PM / New Champagne (Piper Heidseck Rare 2002) in Qantas first class
They're based on a similar principle but they're not the same seat.Emirates A380s use Zodiac's Skylounge product (ANA use this as well), whereas Qantas uses the Thompson Vantage XL product.
Mar 23, 2018, 10.46 PM / Are the Qantas 787 and Emirates 380 Business seats based on the same product?
I'm a militant atheist. But I don't get offended at the mere presence of a religious text. It doesn't burn me or make me scream in pain. Even if I do want to roll my eyes a little over it, I don't feel personally offended or excluded or "micro-aggressed" against. That said, "there's an app for th...
Feb 27, 2018, 11.43 PM / Holy Bibles in hotel rooms
If all of these planes are being dedicated exclusively to North America and no European routes...The BNE-LAX-JFK route seems like an obvious choice (helps phase out 747s too), and Dallas is probably the most likely destination for the other two jets (given its AA's biggest hub). Chicago is a smal...
