As shown here, were these First Class seats?

and Alitalia:

This is again four-abreast, so I gather it was flown as First Class. Did Alitalia fly the Caravelle in all F, or was this display merely configured for all F? I know that UA had F all the way through, similar to this. While the cabin architecture is nice and clean, the seat pairs are fairly narrow. Can any real specialist tell me how wide these pairs are, compared, say to a Boeing 767 6-abreast pair, which is 48 inches?

In any event, it's great to see how things were in Europe , back in the proverbial day.
