I've always wondered why the 747 didn't have a passenger level front
window.  Surely they don't need all of the room in the nose for
electronics, since smaller jets can get by.

Imagine: A ceiling to floor window for those lucky enough to
be seated in row 1.  The airlines could call it 'Sky Throne'
service and charge a hefty premium.

Virgin Atlantic, are you listening?  :-)
