    Hey, it gives reasons for everyone else to not worry about the premium cabins = more oppurtunites for us!

    The slideshow covers mostly international airlines. Good refresher on the premium economy products out there.

    Read the article. Did not notice a single reason to choose to fly coach. :)

    Though all those things do help ease the pain a little.

    LOL, no real good reason to reverse course and go coach.

    Hmm.

    "The Pinnacle seat by B/E Aerospace is an industrywide economy standard—more than 200 million have been produced."

    Really? That would be a million airplanes with loaded with 200 seats each. Seems, uh, doubtful.

    I imagine the number includes replacements...though still a bit too high.

    Orders of magnitude, I would guess. Maybe 200,000?

    Agreed. Title should have been "10 reasons why some airlines coach class doesn't suck so bad"

    No thanks, although I did EWR-DEL on CO with 5 babies/kids in the adjacent 2 rows- front, side, and back. All I can say is they are still alive only because I had noise cancelling headsets and more than a few drinks.

    Actually no, long story but I recently swapped seats with my son HKG-MEL ( you guessed it) he was in coach and I was in Business.
    I've only just regained the power in my legs and realised that my time spent idly on the boards and acquiring enough points for creative routings and upgrades was time well spent ;)
    YMMV

    I'm not sure there's EVER a really good reason to fly in Y....other than price sometimes and if I have a bulkhead or exit row seat. ;)

    Some more time on MP and we should be able to fix that (the not flying J/F part) :)

    I am pleased almost all of you agree with my view on the subject.

    As for you uggboy, it is time to 'fess up. You don't fly business or First because only SQ or EK A380 Suites will do on those rare occasions when you fly commercial. You just don't show your airline allegiances because they are to netjetsLogo.png :cool:
    and you don't want us to be jealous. That's it, right?:D

    I'd sneak back to coach to go use that women's only restroom on ANA!

    Reason number 3:
    It's a hybrid of two disastrously failing business plans?

    Luckily, I have no Fear Of Coach. My biggest concern is can I get my carryon into an overhead close to where I'm sitting. :)

    Yeah I can't say any of that makes me WANT to fly coach. Alas, until I hit the lottery...I must enjoy what I can get.
