    I like KE's 380 layout the best.

    Either the diagram is wrong or the number is wrong.

    The diagram shows:-
    Forward section: 28 seats.
    Aft section: 28 seats.

    Total: 56 seats.

    So, it seems to me, either the diagram is wrong or the number given (53 seats) is wrong.

    A different Source provides a diagram that suggests that it's the diagram that's wrong, with the forward CW section having only 25 seats (four window pairs on either side, but only three rows of middle triples).

    So the forward section is 25 seats; the aft section is 28 seats; and the total of 53 seats for upper deck CW is correct.
