Twin-aisle replacement for Boeing 737?

My colleague Jon Ostrower has discovered a Boeing patent that could herald the dawn of a new age – twin-aisle replacements for today’s narrowbody work horses.

Can we have our seat with room to move (to the bathroom)? In other words, can we have our cake and eat it too? Iteration below is, of course, five-abreast, not seven-abreast as proposed by Boeing. But two aisles are better than one, no?

    I have a vague recollection that the original 737-100 was called “Fat Albert” due to its fuselage proportions compared to a B707. This offspring is podgy to the max but you do’n't see that from the inside. My preferred economy ride on Sydeny Melbourne was always a B767 rather than a B737 due to 2-3-2 configuration which is good for 6 out of 7 occupants.

    Intelligent space efficiency. People like the Japaneese and myself are going to love this.

    I like the single seat on the starboard side… keeps those malodorous humans from getting too close.

    A lady should have wealth and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.
