Anzett: If you looked at my post then you would have found it. And as Jim says, it is 6ft 5" long, (2" more than a certain Hong Kong based competitor) and 27" wide (6.5" more than the latter competitor). However, the PTV is 10.4" (0" more than the latter competitor).

AF777: I don't use pitch when referring to sleepers or beds. I don't see the relevance and I don't think anyone cares. People just care about the sleeper / bed length. However when you come to "normal" business and economy everyone cares! hehe

Well if it's anything remotely similar (in idea, if nothing else) to Virgin's new Upper Class, then the pitch will be similar to what it is now... around 55".
Given that they'll lose one row of seats on the 744, perhaps it may be slightly greater, at around 60".
Either way, pitch is still relevant. The bed-length may be over six feet, but the beds presumably slide underneath one-another, as in VS' Upper Class, and with CX's new design.
Perhaps thisa better idea - or just different - than BA's method of putting narrower seats in with greater pitch, judging by people on here saying that "BA's new seat is not good." Of course anything is better than Coach.
