Seats have been the biggest premium cabin innovation, with a huge leap forward in business class that limits the quality difference with first class.
For instance, Singapore Airlines first class is four seats across in the cabin — and so is business class.
That leaves only so many places to go as airlines compete for lucrative high yield passengers. So what’s next?
…the airline’s most valued customers should ignore the escape path lighting along the aisle and instead follow the green lighting on the first-class seatbacks to a secret hatch just behind the forward lavatory. “For your convenience, in the event of an emergency, a bulkhead will automatically close and seal off the first-class cabin from the economy cabin, giving you ample legroom while deplaning. In addition, should we experience a sudden loss of cabin pressure, ignore the oxygen masks that drop from above and instead use the real ones located underneath your seat, right next to your emergency parachute.”
