First Class is occupying a smaller market space than before, I agree. Its a huge investment for an airline too... ground service is a massive component of First and this isn't cheap to provide!But will it die? Maybe. Or perhaps it will be unbundled and you can get a Business Class seat with First...
Nov 16, 2017, 12.56 PM / Why first class is more lavish, less viable than ever
Waiting until 2019 seems... unfortunate. But this is still a good product overall. Fully flat beds over 6ft, direct aisle access for all passengers, longer and wider beds than previously with more storage. Its perfectly acceptable even though its not game-changing or super luxurious.

I'd prefer doing so in SQ's new Suites Class bathrooms, personally. But each to their own!

If you're a QF Platinum 1, then you're already giving QF enough money as it is without them having to introduce a world-beating product. So you aren't going to give QF an incentive to change unless you shift entirely to SQ.
Nov 02, 2017, 04.28 PM / Singapore Airlines' new A380 business class seats with double bed
Those seats look atrociously sexy. And yes there will be privacy dividers so no one needs to worry about being double-bedded with someone they don't know. This new seat is higher-density, higher-amenity, and okay its a touch narrower but 25" wide is still damn generous. It'll be an excellent seat...
Nov 02, 2017, 02.58 PM / Singapore Airlines' new A380 business class seats with double bed
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...

No First Class?I find that hard to believe honestly. The markets to LHR and JFK (the two ports which A350-ULRs would want to serve) have obvious First demand. Plus, given that lower capacity = lighter load = longer range, it makes sense to go for a four-class LOPA on the jet. First Class passenge...

I know this is a double post but I've done a bit of an analysis. The A350's claims of such incredible seat width are... well not entirely deceptive but overstated.Calculating the "seating envelope" (aisles + armrests + seat pans) makes it clear that at the armrest level, the A350 only gives 1.4" ...
