Why the A380 doesn't have front windows on the top floor?

    The title says it all.

    On the 747, the cockpit is in the upper level and in the lower there's equipment (radar, avionics, etc.)

    But on the A380, the cockpit is in the lower floor and there's no equipment in the upper floor. So I think it could be technically possible to place some front windows in order to get a pilot-like view.

    I guess that would reduce the aerodynamic efficience of the aircraft, but maybe it could be compensated by higher prices on those exclusive view seats?

    Has any aircraft like that ever existed? Or designed?
