    To be clear, they are putting seats beyond the forward zone on the 787? As in more than 20 biz seats total?

    I’m not following this design. So each seat is facing another seat either in the row in front or behind?

    (+) – they got rid of that horrible semi-adjustable headrest pillow on the 77W seat. That thing gave me the worst neck pain because it would not move as high as I needed it to

    (-) – they added the touch-screen remote that looks like it’s from the 32B. It never works.
