    Thats hilarious! Do you really think that is what the interior will look like? Maybe the lighting, but who will notice the lighting while they are trying to crawl across ten or twelve other passengers to get to the window seat.

    Hey, how we (Boeing) present the thing and how the buyer uses it are two
    different things. Remeber this, those cheap seats with no leg room are usually
    put there by the airlines. More asses, more money.

    Northwest Airlines is starting to charge $15.00 extra for aisle and bulkhead seats.

    Most industry experts see airlines charging for soft drinks, and even charging for checked luggage by the end of summer.

    If they roll this thing out..how much will a round trip ticket be?

    I doubt any airline will keep this setup. Think of it as a car that you can buy
    with no interior, then you contract someone else to add what you want.

    I like the big windows, but then I am definitely a look-out-the window girl.

    I half-expected to see Shatner in a picture.

    Wow. The seat size is a major improvement over current commercial airplanes.

    Personally, I would find it quite strange to be sitting in those single seats in the middle.

    I also like how every shot was of first class. If you look in the back you can see coach.

    anything to help pull their asses out of bankruptcy...while the CEO's still get paid millions/year and still get big fat raises and bonuses.

    And...most mechanic work is going to be handled by cheaper labor. I have never flown Northwest, and because of their mechanic issues, I don't plan to. I don't want some guy who worked in lost baggage last month and doesn't speak english to be working on the plane I am on...
