This is possibly a can of worms, but seeing the info regarding the new Lufthansa Business Class seat got me thinking once again about this. What is the ideal premium configuration? Obviously airlines differ, personal preferences differ etc. Lufthansa for example, with its new First Class, has a separate bed next to the seat. This seems great, imo, because it really differentiates the hard product from business class. Some airlines have 1-2-1 layout in J, which can seem a bit wasteful, space wise, then you have BA or UA which have 2-4-2 in their 744/777's. I've never been a huge fan of the herringbone layout, especially if you were travelling with someone. 2-2-2 appears a good layout, but then some people complain about aisle access for the window seats. I also really like the layout Swiss has in business. Just wanted to see what people thought.
