BA futures lab is asking for views on direct aisles access and the results to date, based on 179 individual replies, (83% of whom have flown club world) are interesting.
85% think such a product is important (30%) or very important (50%)
All else being equal 56% agree or completely agree that would choose it over the current Club World.
28% agree or completely agree that they would pay more for it and 56% either disagree or completely disagree.
In each case these results are significantly higher that for a poll a few weeks ago.
My view is that direct aisle access such as CX and AA is the way forward and inevitable as carriers fight for premium traffic.
