Boeing and Teague Design (kind of official Boeing partner for all B industrial design based in Seattle - www.teague.com)
did an interesting job with that mock-up.
However, as many of you already pointed out, the "open" design will have to compromise with galleys and lavatories in the end.
It is interesting to see what the future developments will be in those two areas.
As for galleys, I am sure there must be some possible development but it might not happen very soon - the actual level of organization and refinement of galley space is pretty high - please feel free to comment on this.
As for the lavatories, they tend to get more chic especially in Business and First and you cannot really squeeze them away in a tiny corner for economy passengers. The bottom line is that also a quite "big" passenger must be able to turn around in all safety inside it, so...
The A380 lavatories will, if I am correct, include a window and even a shower in some versions, but this is on a plane with a special size.
I wonder if Boeing will offer clients like EK
, who plan to use showers according to rumors on their A380, the option of having them also on some of its twin aisle models... might not be the 787 though.
Just some considerations - your comments are welcome!
