A Brazilian travel agent marketing portal is showing off some photos purported to be the new first class cabin for TAM’s 777 aircraft. They’re not suites with a door but they appear to be pretty wide, with a huge TV screen and an ottoman, allowing someone to join you at your seat for a meal, meeting or just to chat. And a locker for your jacket and other carry-on bits. It looks pretty darn nice.
Alas, there appears to only be one row – four seats – in the cabin, just like the current layout. That means award seats or upgrades will be a challenge. And with TAM in limbo right now between Star Alliance and oneworld it is even more awkward. Still, the cabin looks quite impressive, at least to me.
That photo is courtesy of the portal site. They’ve got a bunch more on their page. Check it out.
