Travel: The half a million dollar first class seat
Most consultants travel a lot. I thought it may be interesting to share a nice article from the New Yorker on the history and design of first/business class seats.
A few points caught my eye:
- Birtish Airways was the first airline to offer fully flat beds, but not till 1995
- New first class seats cost ~$500k each
Worth a read (and perhaps weeping over, when you are stuck in seat 22B).
