As long as it's lie flat with direct aisle access, I suspect most people are reasonably satisfied. (Each seat type has its own pros and cons of course, I'm just speaking in the aggregate.)

I'd be more worried about the AF A330 going 2-2-2 as a product inconsistency (along with the very lengthy timeframe to do the mods).
I agree with you, if AF keeps a 1-2-1 lieflat with direct aisle access i think (most) people will be satisfied, and the argument that it enables them to use the newest on the market is understandable, and more so if it enables them to keep upgrading to better tech over different cycles (etc if/when they would want to redo 777 BEST)
