There talk that Virgin will outfit some of its upcoming A340s with
some bedrooms and showers and a small restaurant in the lower deck of
the plane.

With cargo space up front taken up by relatively light passenger
amenities, how would this affect the airline's ability to balance the
weight of the aircraft with heavy cargo in the back only ?
