Having spent a good chunk of my life on the upper deck of a 747 transiting to China, my comment...What are they thinking? One of my worst flights was on Continental Business from EWK to Hong Kong. Their "10k per seat" seats were the worst ever. It's an example of where you let engineers push without feedback.
As an engineer myself, Boing should commit to one goal and one goal only(aside from the obvious of safety and useability). Passenger comfort. I am over 6 foot by an inch or so but in many planes my knees impact the seat in front of me.

"I am over 6 foot by an inch or so but in many planes my knees impact the seat in front of me."
It's the airline that specifies the seat pitch and many other interior details. Pitch in particular is subject to change.
Lufthansa lost me as a customer when they decreased their seat pitch. They used to be a comfortable airline, even in coach. Now my knees, as you say, touch the seat in front of me. There isn't even enough room to cross my legs. Excruciating.
Don't blame Boeing. Its the airlines that decide what seat design they are going to use, their size, and how they are spaced out.
