Enough speculation, here are some facts from QF's website:
"The Qantas A380 will feature special lounge areas; facilities for business meetings and business presentations; and video on demand, internet capability and larger entertainment screens in all seats. Paris-based Australian designer Marc Newson, who designed Skybed, is coordinating the design of the Qantas A380 interior cabin. First Class will provide passengers with greater space, comfort and privacy; Business Class will feature an enhanced version of Skybed; and Economy Class will be substantially improved in terms of space for passengers, entertainment and seating."

As we all know, are the business and first classes of the most airlines in the existing aircrafts already very good with plenty of room. I am really wondering if the average economy class in the A 380 will have more room and won't be so horribly cramped as any economy in any airline in these days . Please folks, don't tell me that there are airlines with economy classes which are not cramped. I have flown many airlines, e.g. Singapore, Malaysia, Swiss, Qantas, Emirates, AA, BA and others. Every economy class is hell concerning legroom and width of the seats. I hope this will be slightly better in the A 380 with most airlines.

The last pic is one I've never seen before. To me it looks like a cross between what SQ and VS might do with the premieum sections of their birds. Im very curious to see what they and EK will do to their interiors especially considering EK already has a private cabin with a closing door on its A345's.

@ZRH Did you read the QF announcement? ....and Economy Class will be substantially improved in terms of space for passengers, entertainment and seating
I really hope this will become true. In this case it will be an advantage for those airlines which have 380s. For example in economy I only would fly Qantas or Singapore to Australia if they use 380 and not anymore BA.

Pwm2bos - I think there is some chance to see this stuff in first class, something similar is already available on many airlines. As for the coach... Well, i hope for a little more legroom, nothing more.
If God had wanted men to fly he would have given them more money...

The last picture which shows the Swiss like first class is not the interior of the A380, should be the A340NG interior instead. There is a page in the airbus website of the A330/340 interior with the 360degree view of this interior.

I'm surprised airline managements haven't asked the manufacturers to figure out a way to lay us all flat, like submarine beds. Even give us a sedative upon check in so we don't move, talk, eat, or drink. That way we could be shoved into the overheads, too. I'm sure they dream of densities like this all the time. The see how LD-3 containers fill up the belly and wonder how they can get that amount of passenger packing into the upper floor(s). Afterall, a plane is all about revenue generation per cubic foot.

Well, if you remember when the 747 came out. Most had a lounge or piano bar in the upper deck. Those disappeared and were replaced by seats pretty quickly......we may get a few of these things when the 380 enters service, but I doubt they will be there for long.....
