Ridiculous idea. It's too small even for one person let alone for "family with children". And I can bet any money that airlines that have this option (so far New Zealand has that, too) will forbid passengers to just lie across empty seat rows as they usually do. They'll claim it's "unsafe". Mark my words.

Kinda small, only suitable for children under 10 or 13; not for parents.

To those untrained eyes that most likely have NEVER seen these seats, they aren't nearly as bad as you think they are. FIRST, have a CLOSE LOOK at the row behind and look at what appears to be a footrest that is folded back in the bottom of the seat. Yes, that part comes up to be flush with the seat cushion thus making the 'mattress' as wide as what you see in the image. While it may not be a first class lay flat bed, it is as wide if not wider than some business class layflat suites. This I know from first hand use. So you are flying in Y and they just happen to have these seats and the load is light enough, damn straight (pun intended) those will be the best bet for anyone under 150cm tall. I am not that short but if most you whiners remember those DC-10s with the 2-5-2 config, yeah, well, only one person was ever more than one seat away from the aisle and NO ONE was ever tall enough to complain if they were lying down across 5 seats.
