Boeing should not offer it as an option. Just like offering 3-3-3 economy on a 787. I choose my flights based on aircraft type now.
Exactly! Boeing shouldn’t sell customers what they are asking for and willing to pay for. It makes no sense.
The nerve of Boeing, trying to meet customer demand.
How dare they!
Hmph, how dare they have a high profit and high volume product! The nerve. On a budget too! Hmph

In that order. If there are enough choices, pick on type. I personally find a domestic first in a 737 so much better than Y. Even though I'm tall,. I'll only pay $10/hour for leg room in Y+. I've found any lie flat is awesome!!! Domestic first is only occasionally a good enough deal.

If customers really cared, why is ULCC growth outpacing the industry? Aircraft real estate is expensive (cost, weight, drag). Pay for it or lose it.
