Appears to take up too much revenue space.

Didn't Lufthansa propose this a while back?

Yes, LH proposed this last year. The whole sleeper class reminds me of the 5th Element Movie.

Check out this part of the article:

"...the abh system can achieve layouts that match - and even increase - passenger capacity, compared to that attained by means of conventional seating. In fact, the systemís designers affirm that, having taken into account the precise dimensions of an actual Airbus A380 cabin, several abh layouts for three-class arrangements have been attained already that can accommodate as many as 580 passengers - hatís 25 more seats than the standard 555 seat configuration for a three-class arrangement in an A380."

Hi Morpheus, and welcome to AI.net! If you'd like to, it would be great if you could introduce yourself on the member introductions thread.
