Can the 777X hold 18in at 10 abreast or is it a bit less than that, I think SQ might prefer to keep seat widths as standard so if the 777X can't do 10 abreat @18in I wonder if that might be a detracting factor.
At ten abreast, 777X seats would be about 17,5 inches with some variation depending on aisle width - there is no way an airline could offer 18 inches seats (hence Airbus' recent campaign).
So, you are right, SQ's choice is in part a trade-off between revenue and customer comfort. It must be a tough call ...
I don't think it is a typo after reading who said it. Saj Ahmad was always Airbus hater and diehard pro Boeing . Just check his tweets twitter.com/StratAero. That Uresh (owner of All Things 787) loves him and keeps re-teeting his post which he attack Airbus
