Major problem I see is the additional moving parts. Will always lead to breaking and more maintenance, which I don't see the airlines wanting to deal with
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Some Caribbean island hoppers. Nothing exciting. SIN-SYD would be a bad redemption in BA "F" anyways. SQ F A380 for 40k UA would be a MUCH better redemption IMO, even with a free companion on BA.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Every second the plane is delayed it costs them money. This will be saving them money.

Perhaps this has been answered somewhere else but random travel question:

If I book a flight from DC to Stockholm with a stopover in in Paris can I then book a flight from Paris to Tel Aviv and just skip the 2nd leg of the trip to Stockholm?  Will I be able to get my luggage in Paris or will it go straight through to Stockholm?
What about on the way back?  Can I book the same itinerary and get on the flight from Paris to DC without having been on the Stockholm to Paris flight?

Once you skip one leg, I believe that all subsequent flights are cancelled.
Not sure about luggage.

Problem 1: Moving parts
Problem 2: FA's literally have to be involved with every person sitting down.
Problem 3: Elites board first AND want the front of the plane, so the aisle width benefits are negated immediately.
Problem 4: Some people sitting in the lower middle seat are going to feel like they are in a pit
Problem 5: It's different, and no one likes different

According to TPG's snapchat, UA is going to be flying the new 777 with the new Polaris seats, EWR-TLV starting in May.
