But the article says the price will be the same as current D1:D ;)

The seat is 2m (79") long, but I don't know how wide the footwell is. That's roughly the same length as Air France's La Premier (International First Class) seat, though that seat has an open ottoman to complete the bed rather than a footwell.

Adding more fuel to the rumor, I think the B6 A321 seats are Vantage (not XL) seats modified with a door?

I believe so, though only 4 of the 16 business seats on their A321s are enclosed seats. The rest are in a 2-2 arrangement and do not have a door.

I doubt it, especially if there are fewer J seats.

I just wish they'd get a real Premium Economy :(

That is arriving with the A350 and the 777 retrofit.

The 360 picture DL posted to FB today seems to confirm that. You can glimpse it in the background. Looks like 5 rows of 8 across but who knows if this picture is actually what will be realized or not.

Looks (albeit it is hard to see) very similar to the seats Cathay Pacific use in PE, which is actually 7 abreast on the A330, and I would imagine 7 abreast on the A350 as well.

One word: Mint.

Its an artists rendering artwork image... shouldn't be inferring anything from what is in the background, and I'm sure the seats/cabin are going to look a little different than in the picture as well.

The main disappointing thing is the mention of only 32 J seats. I wonder what the final J/W/Y arrangement will be... and how the premium economy W will work for elites... ie if it is a 'real' product not just C+ then I highly doubt that PM/DM will get access for free but it will be offered at a significant increase over a Y seat... which means elites will be stuck in C- unless you pay a $1k+ premium for W.

Right? You thought 800K for a RT tix in J was high now...

Also, you can kiss using GUC's good bye, as if LAX-SYD wasn't hard enough today....

Is that Deltalina??

Glad to see that they included TUMI and Dasani so we know it's not a stock photo. :p

I'm assuming no middle overhead bins in the 360 DL released of the cabin is just so we have a better visual idea of what the cabin looks like. Unless there really won't be middle OH bins?
