Yes, that caught my eye too.
Maybe that also means more Premiere seats
Could do although the impression I got was that it was more about the low number of C seats compared to the competition, although there is also that bit about making sure that Premiere is available consistently on routes on which it is offered.

where to put the A380s? Conakry, Ouagadougou and Quito are tricky for this type of plane.
I got the impression that the plan was to retire the A380s altogether although I have not checked the timescale for this so there may well be an interim issue.
