    This could easily be the new look on the refurbished LH F, atop of the 747's :

    Looks pretty good. I just hope they do not block all the award seats for other ff-programs as they done on the A380

    One thought about the seats though is that since it's a 1 - | | - 1 configuration, couldn't they have included at least an ottoman or a buddy seat, so that you could dine/eat together? i guess it's probably again a weight issue.

    Looks great. Be interesting to see how the final product turns out.

    Looks pretty cool, sort of the same idea as the SQ suite, just without walls.

    So why didn't they add walls for additional privacy and make it a true industry leading suite product?

    When they surveyed the frequent LH F customers, they received feedback that customers did not want the suite type layout.

    Those people are wrong, of course, but that aside, it looks amazing!

    Because the ones that wanted a true modern F product had already left for other airlines over the last 10 years that have been providing such?

    This is BS, IMO. Just like when United wants to take some benefit away, they prefix their press release with "Due to customer feedback ... "

    I mean, what is the disadvantage of a suite when you could just keep the doors open?

    You may not agree with them but how can they be "wrong"? [​IMG]
    The A380 has privacy screens but according to the mockup image 744 does not. On the other hand you won't be sleeping right next to the aisle.

    By definition, if I don't agree with someone, I believe they are wrong. As in, incorrect.

    What's in the big box, below the bed? (At least it looks like a bed...)
    Gigant stowage bin or just air? A private bar? Bathtub?

    Storage bin. But I like the idea of a bathtub. ;)

    does anyone else think the bed in this photo looks like an OR table? It looks very uncomfortable and exposed. It would have been nice to lower it a bit to give you a bit of privacy while sleeping. Although this is still a vast improvement over the former!
     
  19. I think it's a table, and the seat goes flat.

    from the pictures that's what it looks like to me too. does not look like a bed.

    i like the openess of this cabin design rather than a true suite with walls.

    Unless the seat slides forward considerably, and there is no evidence of tracks to indicate it does, there is insufficient room for the seat to go flat.

    i don't consider that to be an issue at all... the structure of seat doesn't have to slide imo for the seat to turn into a bed. Furthermore if you look at the A380F there is no tracks for the ottoman which slides or for the seat either... and its the same structure, as it turns into a bed, yet you have the partition right behind it.

    If it is a table, why is there a seatbelt across it? To me, that belt is strong evidence that you're meant to lie on that surface.

    i am not a 100% sure it's a seatbelt. It looks to me as a divider between two storage compartments. Furthermore it's a little high to be a bed isn't it? might feel strange having to get on top of it.

    If you look carefully, you can see that there is a (small) privacy screen on the bed (behind the seat). This and the seatbelt clearly indicates that this is a bed...
