This is the case for most airlines, I imagine. On UA, for example, all but two rows of Business Class extends aft of Door 2L on the 777 so during boarding the entire Economy Class cabin passes through. And BA is moving (or considering moving) Club Europe aft of Door 3L/3R on the 744.
Yes, thats interesting though, i found alot of space on the A380 which is basically going to be used for amenities and not rev seats.
1. Those Sofas, which seem to me to be a permanant part of all A380's. You have to be on one to realise how narrow they are. Unless ofcourse they are used for crew seating. But im not sure ,are the crew allowed to sit in an area which does nto have a clear view of the pax?
2. There is alot of space between the cockpit door (which interestingly is abour 3.5 feet above the lower deck do you actually have to climb about 3 stairs to it), and the first class section. This is where there is a Bar, dont knwo if its a dedicated one on all A380's.
Neither of these two locations will be used for seats, unless ofcourse its being flown by a LCC.
It really seems to be revlutionising flying, i mean you can walk around with a sense of openness, and not very cramped, like i did feel flying VS
346 and sitting on the bar.
Basically, once u see the 380, there would be a gazillion places airlines can stick seats in.. ofcourse, this airbus mock up is nothing to really go by, but still.
