  1. “…the paltry 20 business seats American puts on its 787-8”

    But aren’t you’re comparing a 2-2-2 configuration to a 1-2-1 configuration?

    The 787-8 is a not a large aircraft. Most airlines who have 1-2-1 (like American, Air Canada, Qatar) are doing around 20 seats in business.

    IMO: In 2020, six-abreast business class is quite outdated.
