Best Overall Cabin Interiors & Seats

Sun Jan 04, 2004 8:45 pm

Which airline do you think has the best overall cabin interiors & seats on their widebodied fleets? Let's use the following scoring system: cabin interior 0-10, first class seat 0-10, business class seat 0-10, and economy class seat 0-10. Maximum score would be 40; minimum score would be 0.

I would have to say that ANA & Singapore Airlines are in the top of the class with 40 points from what I've seen in the photos although I've never flown on them.

I think that Emirates´ new A340-500 would have to be taken into consideration as well...would love to fly on that plane someday...  Love

Being on AF quite a lot, I think the Espace Affaires (Business) interior is quite nice, with soothing colors to ease off the 10-hour plus flights Big grin :

Their Tempo (economy) cabin is quite nice too, but I would prefer a darker shade of blue :

My votes go to:

Swiss A340-300 interior - Typical Tyler Brule design "high level, classy understatement"
