The new business class seat is a substantial upgrade over the current seats including:
- Lay-flat 6'4" bed
- 15.4 inch LCD display
- 110 volt outlet -- no more need for empower adapter!!!!
- Apple iPod dock
- USB power supply to power/recharge devices
- etc., etc.
You can take a look at the following for more information:
All I can say is "bring it on!!!" I'm ready for it today.
UPDATE: 7/24 - The down side in all this is that there are substantially less business class seats in each of the aircraft: 747 - 53 (down from 72), 767 - 26 (down from 32), and 777 - 40 (down from 45/49). So while the seats are much better, there are less of them making upgrades much more competitive. TANNSTAAFL.
