I'm sorry, but this is not how we model these things.

Japan airlines decision to go 2-4-2 on their dreamliners has been a great decision for them. Every travel forum is comparing Qantas's cramped seating against Japan airlines! They are getting the good publicity without having to do anything! The average public do research their flights on internet and look at comfort and price, despite what some people think. Economy passengers are far more savvy than airlines give crdit to

Totally agree. - the majority of passengers today are price focused, with schedules and aircraft types secondary, let alone worrying about seating configurations. The old days are gone and the new budget aviator is not ruling the skies.

Oh my god. So many arm chair CEOs. I've flown NZs 789 multi times, their 3-3-3 is totally fine. Everyone get over yourselves. If you want comfort pay for PE. If you can't afford it then fly via Japan.

It's all very interesting on people's thoughts. I guess QF and passengers will just have to wait and see. The PER-LHR may be very popular or passengers may avoid the 3-3-3 for 17 hours? Personally I will avoid 17 hours straight in Economy even Premium Economy.
