I would expect both of the aircraft will be very comfortable especially the A350 because it's wider even in a 3-3-3 config.

In principle, I expect more or less the same narrow and uncomfortable Y-class seats, with too little pitch and too much room for my legs taken away by that annyoing PTV control box that does not offer any value to me (yes... I'm not a PTV-addict).

Other than that, I expect the experience as a passenger on either plane will be, give or take a few rather minor issues, pretty much the same as any other plane in service today.



Smile - it confuses people!

One of the most comfortable long haul planes in coach, Thai A340-500. The most uncofortable long haul planes in coach, US Airways A330-300. Both have same cabin width, and almost identical cabin. All comes to how the airlines equip it.

On all of those press releases and shows we always get to see those extremely nice cabin interiors (both for 787 A350 and for A380) but i do wonder what airlines really will equip their planes with. Like DelawareUSA said, it all comes down to how much airlines want to invest in the interior and the comfort...

I hope you get to "feel" the less dry air, and that travel would actually be more comfortable, although i'll have to experience that myself before believing...

 checkmark  We know how Boeing and Airbus like to make publicity shots with fancy lighting, roomy seats, this and that...You know damn well right that the airlines are going to pack the 787 and A350 full...rendering another tube with wings, only made of plastic (composites) instead of metal  sarcastic

What to expect as passengers? Well that all depends on the airline you fly with. I dare say that flying the 717 with Midwest signature or Air Tran would give rather different results for exactly the same very good little aircraft.
I had once been eagerly awaiting my first flight in a 777 because I always heard how fantastic this aircraft was. Well the aircraft was brilliant, but I flew Thai, so I may as well have sat on a wooden bench and read a book. The individual carrier chooses the seats and IFE and the food and their staff and the bags of goodies if any, Not Boeing and Not Airbus. They will both make the most efficient plane that they can while considering airline requirements and enviromental issues.



I remember when the DC-3 was new!
