Best C class seats, IMO:
1. SQ JFK-FRA
2. NZ LAX-LHR

One way to compare 3-3-3 to 2-5-2 is to see how many persons you'd have to climb over/force to get up to reach the aisle.
3-3-3: 2+1+0+0+1+0+0+1+2=7. Average: 0.78 seats per passenger.

http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/members/sittingupfront-albums-screenshots-picture5745-image.jpg

The most expensive connection was listed as "1.283e+6".
For $1.2M, I'd choose a different carrier :)
