A case of “what were they thinking?”

My friend Zach sent me a link to some pictures of the A380 interior that Qantas chose. Now I’m anything but an expert on fashion/what colors match, but that interior makes even me cringe. First looks fine (although nothing spectacular), but what’s up with the business and coach interior? Heck, I can kind of live with business, but look at coach! Yucky green, are they serious?!?! You’d think they’d want to showcase the best they have with the new aircraft, but I guess they tried to stand out and failed miserably.

I don’t know, maybe I need my eyes checked out, or maybe Qantas needs a new interior designer. Am I totally off base?

Update: Just saw that The Flying Critic blogged about it as well today, and it appears I’m not the only one that finds the interior hideous.

  1. Well I can tell you first hand that the early photo’s of the Qantas A380 has done it an injustice. Have traveled a few times on it , it is really a very nice, spacious and comfortable aircraft. What you will find with this aircraft is that it has all the bells and whistles, but with an understated “non tacky” minimal appearance. The look is contemporary, sleek and modern. Unlike most other airlines it is not “in your face” and very uncluttered, yet it offers everything if not more than you expect. It makes for a very comfortable and relaxing trip.
