What do you think?
I find the business class compartment not too bad, but the economy class seems old.nevertheless, the cabin seems spacious

I really like the way it looks... definitely unusual, and I'm sure it FEELS really big from the inside!

I think it is great, I would fly it happily. It actually looks more comfortable than some of the seats I've seen onboard other aircraft.

Quoting FlyKev ( Reply 3): Strange system with the fan in the seat...
Not really strange, as the old DC-8-50 used to have that too...guess, it's just "old-fashioned", but good enough for the center-seats...how do you adjust your fan otherwise ??
don't throw away tomorrow !

I seem to like it. It looks really nice a spacious. I like the 3-3-3 seating. instead of 2-4-3 I much rather have the 3 in the middle than the 4.

I think that the photographer in Budapest should have taken a look at the Aeroflot seat map:
What he claims is business class is actually first class. Business class is 2-2-2. However, on that particular flight ( SVO- BUD), SU probably had no first class passengers, so the biz passengers were probably upgraded to the first cabin, just like e.g. Thai is doing on their 747 flights between BKK- HKT.
The real business cabin is very bad; only slightly wider seats and slightly more pitch than in the 3-3-3 economy.
The first cabin is okay, but even below most European long-haul business class products. The seat pitch in first is so small that you can't even keep a laptop on your tray table if the person in front of you reclines his seat (believe me, I've tried!).
It feels like sitting in a very old DC-10.
It looks spacious because there are no center overhead bins, and the baggage bins on each side are extremely small.
