It looks like the stairwell to the crew rest area is shown in the center just ahead of the emergency exits behind the wing. That is where the stairwell is located on the A330-300.

With 34 seats replacing 40 seats in a 1-2-1, an alternating 1-1-1/1-2-1 seems very likely. That would work out to 35 seats, which is just one off from 34.
Also, the 20 W seats would be three rows of...

I expect DL will mod the 767-400ERs with Delta One Suites and 2-2-2 PS. I doubt there will be any big changes to the 767-300ERs.
I believe the original business class on the 767ERs was a 2-2-2 using...

The PREM, SKY, ZONE 1, ZONE 2 boarding designations.

I would prefer the first boarding zone be ZONE 1, the second ZONE 2, etc.

FFs understand this, but occasional flyers do not.

At the very...

I don't travel much, and I rarely check bags on business travel, but I have reached the point I would prefer to fly SouthWest. I used to hate SouthWest, because I preferred an assigned seat. But...

I have seen the same comment regarding the uniqueness of the V2500-D5 engine elsewhere. Wikipedia's V2500 page states the V2533-A5 for the Airbus A321 was developed first, then several derated...

I used to travel from SJC to SLC on the MD-90s when they were mostly used on western routes. When upgraded to F, I could not hear the engines even on takeoff. The only think I could hear was the air...

France is much more of an international destination than the Netherlands. AMS was designed to be more of a connecting airport so KLM could be a global airline.

In 2012 when I connected through...

This is about two things

One is revenue. There are many companies who will not pay for business class. This is why Delta started reducing the size of J cabins on many routes. However, there is the possibility those same...

While the U.S. does not have an exit immigration station, I believe the airlines are required to either scan or manually enter the passport information into their computers when you check in. This...

Agree. This seems to be a branding fail. While a designer might think of mixing Delta's primary branding colors, the average consumer will not "get it". They will see it as a third color.

A paid lounge membership should be a lounge membership, not lounge access. When I was a SC member I used the SC when I flew other airlines.

Reminds me of one time about 10 years ago. I am pretty sure this was before they started charging for bags on domestic. I think this was out of FLL. I was PM, so I was on early, along with the other...

This was definitely the "feel" of the original 757 overhead bin design, where there was a gap between the ceiling and the top of the bin. It was very different from the older 727 and 737 overhead bin...

The 727, 737, and 757 use identical fuselage frames. The interior trim to trim widths are listed as slightly different. I think some of this may be due to the measurement point (wider at the windows,...

This is a really good point, and one I haven't thought of. The problem with herringbone seats is people can bump into the footwell (777) or headwell (A330) area, or people can invade the seat space...
