Size wise it would conform with access laws for those with disabilities. The floor is something we would never see on a U.S carrier but we can already see on CX's A333s. Best business experience in my life on a plane.

That DreamLav looks awesome...I somehow doubt we'll be seeing it any time soon though. Looks kind of far-fetched.
|Quoting HZ747300 (Reply 5):|
What they need is a pressurized dream pod to discharge unruly passengers in flight without the annoyance or inconvenience of a diversion. It would have a barometric parachute release that would discharge at 5000 feet and the pod itself would start to depressurize as to not kill or harm the offenders upon opening once landed.
Would have been the perfect solution for the 'sex rage' couple.

I don't really get this part. Airbus could empty part of the upper deck so that there would be room for some "innovative space", and yes, they would have to remove seats if they wanted to do so, but isn't that the same with the Boeing? If you want to use the upper deck as an executive lounge, then you have to take out some seats aswell..! ??

|Quoting B2707SST (Reply 20):|
No; these features will use crown space above the main cabin, aft of the true upper deck, which was previously used for cables, wiring, and air ducts. The idea is that Sky Suite customers will sit in Y for takeoff and landing, since the crown area has no emergency exit capability, then move to their suites during cruise. For the A380, any similar product would require removing an equal area of existing seating.
|Quoting NorCal (Reply 21):|
Nope, Boeing is using the crown space behind the hump for this stuff. You can't put regular seats in there because there is no emergency exits. However this space could be used for sleeping berths and crew rest areas (like the 777). I think the most realistic use would be galley space and crew rest areas, think of how much room that could free up down below. Probably 4-5 rows of Y if you put the galleys above

ahh.. thanks guys! I misunderstood it
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 25):|
I love the 748 as a better looking jet, and as a great design, but reclaiming dead space doesn't make it a better option than the A380. Unless the 747 can hold real seats up there, it's always going to be less flexible than the A380 in that regard.
|Quoting HiJazzey (Reply 27):|
If you can't put extra seats there because of egress issues, how can you put lounges/sleeping berths? What are the regulations on this matter?
