(Singapore_air, when I talk about the most attractives first class, I never talk about singapore: Just tell me seat pitch and it lookthe same as the seat pitch of some Biz class...ok, ok there is a big TV...
The 747 : it was built 30 years ago.
So that plane has the concept (I mean the cabin concept) of a 1960 plane, but the traveler of today requires more space, and aniway, (even airbus says it) the today and even more the 2005 traveler is fatter.
A little chronology so you understand the evolution of inflights seat :
-The first years of passengers transport :
They were seated without seat, with the mail, and they had to take theyre food.
-Arrival of the aircraft like DC-3, DC-4, DC-6 and also the first jets (707, DC-8) :
nice seats, a little cramped, first can be like suites (on Constellation, starliner...) or like today's economy class.
-now : PTV's, first with suites , biz reclines to bed...
-2005: just imagine a little bit (I agree I am not sure they can be casino, theater...) what can airlines will provides you.
Truly, I think the pictures do not show us something that will not happen in first, and I believe first will be much better (more privacy, and a lot a lot a lot of options).
