The new A220

I had a chance to fly the new Airbus A220 plane the other day. Wonderful, efficient, hi-tech plane! And new airplane smell!

However, there's one bug in this airplane from a passenger perspective. Given that the aircraft is smaller than the typical 737s and A320s, it seats five across, divided of course as 2 seats on the left and 3 on the right side of the aisle. But given today's size of large-ish overhead luggage compartments, left side compartment door is so close to the people walking on the aisle that it is very easy to hit your head. Ouch!

The other interesting bit is that the entertainment system on each seat looks like a phone glued sideways to the back of the previous seat. Which it probably is...
