Airbus' Immobile Armrests

Category: Aviation

afa340.jpgI never wanted to get into this battle, but I have to throw it in - Boeing's large jets are superior to those of Airbus, at least the Air France variety. Why? One and only one reason - the central armrests on both the A330 and the A340 are immobile. That means that if you get the entire middle row (a rare luxury on an intercontinental flight) you are no better off than if you only had 2 seats to yoursellf in one of the outer rows. It is impossible to lie down on only two seats. Horrible!

The airlines chose their own finishing of the plane inside. That includes weather your plane has stars no the roof, collapsible arm rests and the whole entertainment system.
Its not a Airbus or Boeing thing at all.
And nothing beats the A380, not even close.
