The problem is that airlines could not resist putting one or several additional rows of seats instead of offering a little more comfort to their pax. Less "body room" is not a problem for big people, it's a problem for everyone. With these new seats AND more rows of seats installed at the same time, when the passenger in front of you reclines his seat, all you can still do is read a pocket book, not even a magazine.
And why would they put a full bulkhead between C and Y ? Practically nobody does that anymore in Europe and it takes away the flexibility of offering less or more C seats on European flights according to demand. It does not make sense at all, or if it does, I would like someone to explain the logic of it. The separation between C and Y can always be done with a moveable curtain.
A question : which aircraft is SSP ?
Well I've already experience with these new slim seats. And I've absolutly no problem with them, even when the passenger in front of me reclines his seat. But maybe I'm not so strict. But most European flights are not that long, and I've really no problem to fly for 3 hours or less in an airplane with less body room. The only thing I've a problem with is leg room. I can't fly when my legs are crushed between my seat and the seat in front of me. But I suppose that's personal.
About the bulkhead. It's indeed better to use a flexible curtain as it is used by almost every European carrier (altough there are still a few carriers that use a full bulkhead). But it is for sure that they need a separation. For economy pax, mostly no problem but business pax mostly don't like it when they have no separation with economy.
