Quoting markitaly2000 (Reply 4): And what about cabin crew serving meals to the guy seated on the window seat ?
Meals? What meals? We don't know what that is in the US. haha.
Quoting markitaly2000 (Reply 4): Can the window seat guy walk out easily and in safety in case of emergency ?
I would assume the seat would meet any requirements set forth by any of the civil aviation authorities.
Quoting YYZYYT (Reply 5): has any airline actually installed them?
The seats should be certified and ready for production sometime this year. So, no... no airline has yet to install them.
Quoting markitaly2000 (Reply 8): Delta was interested in the seat ... and something was wrong, not sure what ...may be lack of courage ?
I wasn't able to find anything saying that Delta is no longer interested in the seat... so for all I know their plans to install them for the international flights just got delayed from the original timeline.

36"+ seat pitch.
5 across seating.
I know the bean counters are cringing.
Armrests for everyone.
Generous seat recline which does not invade the space of the person seated behind. i.e The seat bottom slides forward similar to the recliner in your home. Only your own leg space is reduced.
I can only dream.

hey Fox, thank you ...of course the answer should be in relation to what is feasible .... Or it would be "private jet experience for all ! "
Some might prefer more space, some more features, some privacy, or the replacement of the traditional cushion with something new ...
for jet Blue777, i like the NZ sky-couch , but don't tell me that you had a good experience on the EK seat ...since they removed the foot-rest (in order to save on weight and maintenance) when, unless you are 6foot, you can't touch the pavement with your feet , talking about "dvt) , sigh ....
And i totally agree, 777 should be 3-3-3 !

Similar to EY's J class and similar staggered configurations, with direct aisle access from every seat - but reduce the seat pitch to around 36 inches and no flat bed. This would necessitate an even number configuration such as 2-4-2. Each seat encapsulated in a 'suite' like configuration with your own TV and footrest. I don't know how best to describe it other than to say think EY's J class with reduced pitch and no flat bed.
Not going to happen, I know, but hey - it's an 'ideal' Y cabin!
