Art_Deco saidNaturally it's understood that airlines choose the interior configuration they want. A mega-plane, like the A380 or the coming 787, gives them more options.
I'd be interested in what is planned for US domestic flights in First Class, which is what I fly most often. I gather what we're seeing here is mostly for very long Pacific or Atlantic flights.
I am as well. We have yet to see a rendering, let alone a real mock-up, of a 787 for American, United/Continental, and Delta. Although Continental is going to be the first U.S. airline to fly the plane from Houston to Lagos and Houston to Auckland.
Here are some prices I looked up on ANA from various cities to Tokyo (Narita), round-trip in business class for one adult from May 2nd-May 16th, 2012:

-Washington, D.C. (Dulles); $6,151
-Chicago (O'Hare); $5,951
-San Francisco; $5,411
-Los Angeles; $3,781
