Inflight Experience / Seating QR A350 New Economy Class, 3-4-3 Configuration?

    Hi there, I just checked out the manufacturer's website for QR's latest Economy seats (roll-out 2021...), see link below.

    At the bottom of the page they have a comprehensive list of seating configuration by aircraft type. A350 is mentioned twice: Either 2-3-2 (19" width), probably for Premium Economy on other airlines, and...3-4-3 (16" width). There is no mention of 3-3-3 (18" width) as per standard on the A350.

    Part of the reason I love the A350 is that I thought it wasn't feasible to implement 3-4-3. Airbus, I thought, found the sweet spot between the 787 and 777. New seat or not, I imagine squeezing in an extra seat and reducing the width to 16" will lead to a pretty grim long-haul experience for most passengers.

    Or perhaps, I should read it a different way: Maybe QR are rolling out 2-3-2 Premium Economy in 2021?!

    Any thoughts or intel on the above? Thanks
