Given the possibilities the airlines, and the companies are considering for the 7E7, and the 380 (i.e. luxurious, and spacious interiors, added facilities like salons and fitness centers in the 380 etc. etc.)...... won't this make travelling on these planes way too expensive ???

thanx  Smile


If it ain't Boeing, I'm not going !

No, because those facilities won't happen. They're Airbus's hype to try and sell A380s. Boeing has much more realistic goals. Bigger windows don't cost anything. They don't take away revenue. A gym or gift shop does both.

Some of the features on the A380 (like fitness centers or store) will never make it to commercial servicem but a stand-up, walk-around bar is feasable.

Newer aircraft are more efficent and thus cheaper to opperate. If an airline chooses to remove some seating for newer features, the aircraft can still maintain the economics of current generation aircraft. Ticket prices remain the same, while features and service increase. Obviously an airline could decide to keep current amenities and either make more profit or charge less for tickets. I suspect airlines will choose profit, but we will hopefully see a slight increase in amenities.

Some of the 7E7 features seem more reasonable than those on the A380. If I'm an economy passenger, larger windows, higher cabin pressure, and higher humidity are much more appealing than a bar. I can enjoy a drink in my seat, and the entire flight would feel more enjoyable from any class.
