What Would You Like To See On The A380?

There are so much speculations about what the airlines will do with their A380 in terms of passengers amenities.
Looking at the first class cabin of the new Emirates A345 we should expect something grand for their premium customers.
But will airlines do something to their Economy pax at all?
Will VG do something innovative as Mr Branson always try?
What I really believe is that it will be only seats, seats and more seats!!!
What's your opinion about it?

I think you meant VS?

I agree with you. I think seats will take up the majority of the cabin. Airlines such as Emirates and Virgin Atlantic Airways, I'm sure will have something special for their premium passengers such as a bar or lounge.

I can't wait for it!

I don't care who does it, in fact I hope that all operators of the 380 will do it, but a seperate "family friendly" area seperated from the rest of the a/c by bulkheads would be nice. Offer different IFE, family sized restrooms, etc. It would probably longhaul a lot more bearable for both families with children and those pax without.

United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?

Just kidding! I would like to see some books, like a small library, but I realize that would be too heavy.

How about a seperate family area so the kids don't piss me off?!?! That would be a great idea... Also, have 4 classes instead of 3 First 1-2-1, business 2-2-2
Economy++ 3-3-3, and Economy 4-4-4 (I'm assuming these would be the standard seating arrangements). A bar would be nice, however, it wouldn't work that well as you can't really stand up...
Larger bathrooms for the mile high club ( Big thumbs up).

i'd love to see the exercise rooms, shopping centers, and movie theaters (and the likes) airbus advertised. however, we all know that the big bus will just be packed with as many revenue creating passengers as possible. not that this is a bad thing, but i do prefer smaller planes, with a more intimate feel.

Well my guess is alot of airlines its gunna be same old thing... wings and a tail attached to a metal tube with seats in it.... But it would be nice if they had a seperate cabin for those traveling with small children so the whole a/c dont have to listen to the kids go crazy over every little thing, and a little more legroom and slightly wider seats never hurt anyone....

What could possibly go wrong?

CanadianNorth: now that is a good idea. not only would it benefit the rest of the cabin, but it could provide a little entertainment for the kids, allowing the parents to relax a bit. perhaps the airlines could staff the area with a child supervisor or something.

All I want is a little more pitch, a little wider seat and a little more legroom. I do not need bars, pools, etc.

The family friendly area is nice, but are there that many families flying long haul, I have not experienced that.

That's great that everybody think about it.
Would be a great idea to have this family area separated. Children on a long haul flight can be a menace.
I really like children myself as I worked with them before. But I don't like the screaming at my ear in a place where I cannot get out.

I like the idea of the strip club too...We have already Hooters, don't we???

Unfortunately, the time of large and spacious cabins, fancy bars, rest areas, smiling pax and relaxed travelers seems to be over. Today what we see is more something like hustled and stressed pax that are irritated and upset by the time they pass through security. I doubt that the close future looks any different. Whoever is imagining the A380 to be an aircraft with lots of leg room and comfy seats will be disappointed.

I'd like to see empty seats on the A380 and then maybe, their passengers won't be clogging up arrival halls, baggage carousels and customs desks all in one huge rush of people. When Airbus and the Airlines realise their paying customers want point to point travel and ease of operating around terminals, then maybe reality will prevail. I love the concept of the 7E7

Marcjet, HootersAir is hardly a flying strip club, despite what some members of the forums would like to believe.

Thanks Garnetpalmetto!!

It was just a remark of how far we can go. What I was trying to say is that if Hooters Bar get their beauties serving us on planes, why shouldn't Stringfellows do the same.
It was basic a joke!! I don't think we will see that coming on regular schedule despite our profound desire to see it happening!!

I would definitely want to see bigger seats in economy. A little more leg room and more recline. Also maybe an open sort of lounge with a couple couch type seats where you can stretch your legs and look out the window if you didn't have a window seat. As if that'll ever happen Yeah sure
