Great looking upper class cabin. Taken from the front row looking aft. You can see a nice small bar which, during the flight, will be full of drinks and small snacks. [EF10-22mm]

The best way to get a drink. Can those seats rotate so you can see trough the window?

This looks very impressive. Very brown. I have never been in there but wouldn't it feel a bit strange, facing inboard like that, watching the other people almost in the face? Doesn't it feel like waiting at the dentist? They should all be in the middle, facing outboard. They could condense the upper bins in the middle. The aisles would be on the outboard side; there are very few people walking there, just the pilots and five seats on each side.

Nice cabin indeed; I don´t think that you have the problem with the wiev outside as these transatlantic flights are mostly overnights and you can´t see anything but water anyway. I´d rather sit in a nice seat than have a view outside

All very chic but do they rotate? if the answer is no..then I'd rather travel economy.

So brazilian pal, you should go economy, 'cause these do not rotate like AA's one.
I also wouldn't like to travel with the window behind me, it shloud feel weird...albeit BA's backward seats are strange (but confortable) either

The pic itself is nice but those seats don't look that comfortable to me plus it looks like you can't look out the window.

Everybody is on a window seat but you can't see outside while flying, waste of sapce and its akward. i wover why many airlines do this configuration.

Great shot but not loving the layout...who would pay big bucks like that and not be able to see out your window? And you're kind of angled toward other passengers...odd.

You can actually see out of the window thats just infront of the seat and it's actually a really good idea to have seats facing the isle so that everyone gets a window seat and noone bothers you by needing to get past! the seats are more comfortable then they look.

Ive flown virgin upper class many times. Seeing out of the window is easy and the angle of the seat adds more comfort I think. Great airline, great service.

You dont really face the other passengers and you can see out of the windows quite clearly, particularly in the nose of this 744 where you can see out of the windows on both sides. Its a very nice cabin. the seats are purple too, not brown.

To see a first class cabin in detail not a lot of people fly first class.But i agree with the yank it is boring this cabin.

I don´t like the distribution of this boeing... It could be better if the seats can be turned off
