    You two have enough shiny lights at the pointy end to keep you occupied, us cattle further back need to feel human sometimes.
    Although it has been many years since i've seen the view out the front. How bout an invite?? ;)
    P.S. that blingy seat did have my name on it.

    Come up at the end. That's still allowed thankfully.

    But you're not sitting on my lap or wearing the hat!

    We do?

    If you have ever flown non-pointy end Emirates, where they remove four toilets to fit in an extra six seats, then your A380 experience will be less than stellar. Actually it will remind you of how slaves were transported out of Africa or why adult diapers seem like a good idea.

    Yes, agree the maths behind that move is not sound, from a passengers perspective.
    You can imagine the accountants are saying, now, if we remove ALL the toilets.............................:crap:

    I reckon Thai economy is one of the best at the back of the bus! Generally an extra inch or 2 of leg room over a lot of the completion and service generally great. Thai food also works quite well in the air.
