Of course, in the unfortunate event of a involuntary and final upgrade mid-flight (I'm assuming the devil may have the best IFE but not the best seats...), Yflat may be exactly where you end up - especially on airlines that are too cheap to pay for a morgue locker. The middle and bottom pax will be pleased how quiet their companion up top is all flight....

Can you imagine the variants on the best-seat threads though!!!??

Is it better to be on top?

or

Is the bottom more preferable?

or

How do you feel about being sandwiched in the middle?

ROFL

Actually that is another clear advantage of this whole bed in Y approach isn't it, keeping the dead bodies from ruining the ambience in F

Also interesting to note the little sentence buried in the Daliy Mail link above - said it would be GBP120 over a flexible ticket. That could end up being quite pricey.

lme etc etc

I'd be more worried about the guy in the bunk below doing that.

Just hope the person above / below you didn't spend any time in a LH lounge pre-flight, overdosing on the lard dip
