    63 seats of Economy Plus would be 7 rows of 9 seats each (not 9 rows). I would think that the bulkhead row at the exit would also be part of Economy Plus since it probably has great legroom.

    Unless maybe the Economy Plus is 8 seats wide 7 * 8 is 56.

    I think this is a pretty spot on analysis. I am just sad that this plane was not available to use my 2010 SWUs on. Y (and Y+) look like a bleak experience.

    The cabin is 38 cm less wide, so about 1,5″ per seat. Given the current 18″ width of that gives less then 17″ wide.
    I’m really looking forward to NOT flying this anytime soon.

    The one time I am planning on flying on a 787 is IAH-AKL in BF (which is a shame considering UA Business is better than CO BF) on a *A RTW trip in business class. I would love to see some of these birds end up with the 3 class config, but unfortunately with the management right now, I don’t see that happening.

    E+ does almost nothing for me, I’m dissapointed they couldn’t make it a little wider for long haul flights.

    It’s very disappointing to hear that Continental will be going with 9 seats across in coach, and 6 seats across in BF.

    The 787 is narrower than the 777, which will result in about 1.5″ less width per seat. This may make the 787 seat the smallest seat of the fleet – width wise. I thus wouldn’t agree with Smisek’s assessment “The 787 will be a very comfortable…aircraft.” Imagine being on a 12 hour flight to Auckland (one of their first routes for the 787) in the narrowest seat in the fleet!

    ANA airlines is going 8 seats across (http://www.airlinereporter.com/2011/08/interior-photo-tour-of-anas-first-boeing-787-dreamliner/ )- now that plane I would enjoy flying.
