Starting this year, all seats on 747s will feature the Marc Newson-designed seats with larger seatback entertainment systems. In the cushy first class, each plane will sport the newest and poshest suites, while business class guarantees the fully-lie-flat seat. For those willing to splurge a little more then economy, each plane will also have a premium economy section and, take it from us, the extra space and comfort is well worth the upgrade is you can spare the frequent flyer miles.
This news comes the same day the airline announced they would be splitting the international and domestic operations into two divisions in July, under separate CEOs, while Alan Joyce remains CEO of the entire airline as a whole. Though customers won't see any differences between the services and products, the decision-making side of the airline will depend on where you are flying.
Overall, it's all good news and we can't be happier for consistency from airplane to airplane; it only saves us a lot of time spent researching on Seat Guru.
