    Looks like 11 in a row, OK for Asians, and Europeans, but a POS is in for a long trip..
    Currently, the Airbus A380 seats 10 passengers in an economy row with a 3-4-3 configuration. The new layout would add an extra seat to the middle row, squeezing people into a too-close-for-comfort 3-5-3 configuration. Though the new seats will be same width as the current design—18inches across—Airbus has slightly modified the entire cabin to raise the plane’s capacity from 525 passengers to 544.

    Are you reporting that the 11-seat across configuration now exists as an option, or there's an airline that already ordered it?

    No just future plans, but then profit is not a dirty word.

    Narrower aisles, narrower armrests(the scammy way), or window seats closer to the wall?

    Because travelling isn't already uncomfortable for people as is!
