IIRC, the 777 crown rest was a new development for the 777W/77L. Older 777s have their crew rest on the main deck.

LCCs aren't too picky on where they fly That's not even remotely true.

Since only one of them is an actual plane, that's not a question that can effectively at this point be answered....
When the 779 is (1) built and (2) is in testing, then we'll know. Until then, it's talking/selling points, computer simulations, and configuration tweaks that will vary.
I'm going to hold you to that. Oh no, not that. :roll: Just because AA wants to follow Spirit doesn't mean DL and UA are stupid enough to follow suit. What are you talking about? Do you, for some reason, believe that DL/UA haven't introduced similar devaluation in (some aspects of) their program/of...Jump to post

They are nothing but a Spirit Airlines wannabe now. As will nearly ALL airlines be, at least in the Y cabin, in a short time. Why?

If by genuine, you mean only 1 runway available, then yes. But as was said above, both LGW and BOM are effectively single runway airports, so the word "genuine" is of little consequence here. Hardly true. Let the end of one of LGW/BOM's runways get obstructed, and we'd see how "effec...Jump to post

As for KEF, two points: First off, all of this expansion is incredible!! For those who might not be familiar, it's not a physically large airport by any stretch of the imagination.
