Except it's 4 rows wide in First Class, so you'd need to tack on another letter.When I made my observation, it wasn't with the intent to insinuate that Anderson had anything to do with it...I'm sure that he doesn't "micro-manage" such trivia.
I just don't see why whomever made the decision to copy the airline practice of skipping some letter's would think passenger's would find that more logical than a simple, "A,B, and C"...
And if they thought otherwise, they should perhaps have used "A, C, and D" since Amtrak does not have anything with more than 4 rows across...
I don't really get what the big deal is, though. Has anyone made a big deal about a 4 seat wide plane not being labeled A/B/C/D (though I have seen a few)?
The Acela is in direct competition with the airlines (first class, luggage bins, etc), so why not continue with that theme and follow the airlines' direction with seat numbers?
