Some charter Airlines use the 3x3x3 configuration for their airbus A330 and A300 (and possibly the A310). this gives them more capacity, so that they can provide lower fares than scheduled operators. this topic was discussed a week ago. Search the thread.
Fly_emirates why should you be surprised?
Youre an EK Steward right?
dont you experience 10 abreast 777s everyday? with this A330 arrangement there is little difference in measuerements the seats are 16in and the gangways are 17in in width with 17in gangways and seats on the 10 abreast 777s.
But most passengers booking tickets for this leisure configured tourist class dont really mind a little discomfort as they paid such a heavily discounted fare. Apart from the uncomfortable arrangement the passengers are still provided with excellent service including hot meals and movies etc.
