I seem to recall the blurb states that the new BA First will be 60% wider at the shoulders (which frankly seems an awful lot to me – maybe I recall that incorrectly!).
Never mind the breadth, let’s talk about the length!! Stats haven’t been released yet, but I feel assured that even you will be suitably impressed by the size of the new F seat.
Cathay is deffo one of the best First Class products out there, but there are other non-seat related factors where other airlines win out. And hopefully soon the new seat will also regain the competitive edge.
I would imagine most people connecting would do so with CX’s oneworld partner.
As BA has showers for all those travelling in business class or above (and all Gold Card holders regardless of class travelled) in its regular Galleries lounges, I suppose a dedicated CX Arrivals Lounge is less important.
Are there some Arrivals facilities in T4 – perhaps Emirates has some? Not sure.
