And just what would the passengers in 1st class do if the pilots ejected from a 787?

Plummet obviously. Same as if the pilots stayed.

However if ejector seats were fitted for pilots, I'm sure that 1st class would get them too. And on Ryanair there would probably be an auction held amongst the remaining passengers for a limited number of parachutes - minimum bid £10,000.
