I am not sure what you are suggesting. I assume a wider cross-section?
A wider cabin but still twin-aisle config., only means more poor saps
stuck `in the middle of the middle'.... an absolute nightmare for those
concerned.  Airbus already markets their `fewer centre seats' as
an `advantage' over the 777.
