Impressive how the A380 dwarfs the Transall on Karel's last photo in the preceding thread.

Everybody interested in the A 380-production will immediately understand that you meant Qatar Aw. Just for safety reasons and to avoid that someone might think QF has scrapped all their existing A 380's and are starting all over again from #1.: it's QR no. 1  

By the way, what is the official delivery date for QF's next A 380?

Airbus released more information about the 11-abreast Y option during the Innovation Days this week.

Quote:
The A380's current layout is for 10 across economy seating with a seat width from 18.5 to 19 inches, but this would be reduced to 18 inches in the 11-abreast configuration.

...

Airbus says its revised floorplan makes full use of the A380’s width by reducing the space between the window seats and the cabin walls for seating on the lower or main deck.

Still with 18" seats it looks like a very reasonable offering, even though the middle seat in a 5-abreast layout will never be popular. But it gets the job done combined with the raised floor on the main deck. And many competitors can't deliver 18" seats in their seating configurations on long(er) haul aircraft........

Skymark is delaying A380 service by as much as six months due to problems fitting interiors.

Seems like a very long time for simple seat issue?

The interior is more than seats alone. The company who designed the Skymark interior (Tokyo-based LIFT Strategic Design) made an error, they need to address the issue and the parts needs to be manufactured again.

Is this the problem with the interior of the first Skymark A380 and for the up to 6 month delay?

So looks like they are taking a page from Boeing on the 777X and reducing the sidewall thickness.

I wonder how this affects noise insulation on the A380? The aircraft is extremely quiet inside now.

( And yes, this is more an issue for Economy Class as the other classes I assume would keep the same sidewall thickness - another incentive to keep the premium cabins on the upper deck.   )

The picture does not show a reduced thickness of the sidewall if I interpret the picture correctly. It only shows the beginning of the sidewall in the second picture. I have not read or heard of Airbus reducing the thickness of the sidewalls on the A380.

What it does show is an elevated mounting of the seats (5 cm/2 inches) to make better use of where the A380-cabin is wider

Or rather a recontouring of the seat base? Simple and elegant solution… much simpler than raising the floor.

Well the upper picture shows thick protrusions above and below the window belt. Those protrusions are missing on the lower picture.

Cancellation is an option if they don't want to increase their A 380-fleet. I ask myself, however, if in such a case it would be better to sell the oldest A 380's and to replace them with more efficient airframes. ThatKs what a good housewife would do...

And the 575t A380 would allow QF to fly SYD-DFW without blocking off seats.

I believe those protrusions are in not really there, but they're mistaken by inner and outer wall shown in the diagram. The second picture only shows the inner wall. Geometrically there's no change to the inner wall.

Also the bottom of the seat cushions on the second picture is shown above a kink at the lower end of the wall. The first picture shows it barely under. It's barely perceptible with the smaller scale diagram of the original cabin cut.

The first diagram shows a section of the sidewall through the middle of the windows, while the second is a section along a frame, i.e. exactly in the middle between the windows. That makes the contours look so different, and probably was to done to make them look different. To my knowledge the wall thickness will not be changed.

Quoting masi1157 (Reply 23):

The section on both is through the windows as shown in the diagram. A plan cut through a diagram or a dram doesn't matter anyway because the interior cabin width doesn't change along a certain specific area of the main cabin. The idea is to bring the seats up to the wider level of the cabin.

Quoting masi1157 (Reply 23):

Exactly!

In other words, first diagram shows wall thickness, the second doesn't.

Although Airbus has been quoted as saying that the floor would be raised, this diagram only shows the seats bring raided.

It makes sense to me if they opted to just stretch the seats' legs than to raise the floor. Less weight, less work, more flexibility for operators, etc. How high did they say they raise the seats? a couple of inches I guess.

Hopefully the seat OEM will design them with adjustible legs or you will end up with a production run of seats which can only be used on one type a/c which can also be costly.
As for how high it is raised, kids and short people are the only concern, foot not touching the floor when sitting.

I think this floorplan is actually more comfortable for the windowseats. I had three A380 flights in the window seat so far and I hated the big gap to the cabin wall, I couldn't sleep with my head leaning on it, even with two pillows and a sweater which kept falling on the floor. I gladly give up a slice of floorspace in exchange for a cabin wall closer to my seat.
