Oh, instead of a seat-plan of 3 - 4 - 3 it could be 4 - 3 - 4, or 3 - 5- 3, means one seat more in a row.
Because if there is no window the wall can be build thinner (they themselfs say, it would safe weight).

In the first video the narrator actually touts wider seating as a benefit of thinner walls. Assuming total fuselage width (of any plane) I wonder how much extra space could be gained by eliminating windows - enough for another seat? I'm envisioning the same amount of seats with a bit of width added - perhaps just a few inches each seat?

And the pictures in the 2 videos only show the First Class.

The second video seems to depict a private jet and the first video again mentions those wider seats "for all passengers"

For me this are empty promises.
As the 380 was build all airlines promised more space. And what happened: more seats in a row.
