British Airways revolutionized Business Class travel when they introduced the flatbed into Business Class. Since then, not much has changed with the hard product BA offers and as a result, they have fallen way behind compared to many other world class airlines. However, this is about to change. BA is about to announce a new Club World Seat and I am so excited.
What we know so far…
- Larger seat with direct aisle access
- Gate to Gate Entertainment
- Increased privacy and stowage
BA has released four pictures as a teaser prior to the launch:
This begs the question – have BA revolutionized Business Class once again, or have they simply copied say, Cathay Pacific and American Airlines and gone for a herringbone layout with their new seat?
Surely the layout will change to 1 2 1
I’m not convinced. Since BA have 2 4 2 currently, this would be a huge capacity drop. Would prices go up as a result or have BA come up with a genius way to cram bigger seats but not compromise on capacity. Don’t forget, these seats will be launched on the A350’s which BA have on order.
Only time will tell… BA have announced on Instagram that they will be revealing all tomorrow morning around 10am. We are all very excited.
What do you think the new BA seat/layout will be like? Let us know…
