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).
