Reply To: BA’s July 4th double celebration

Back to Forum


As the above three posts typically add no value whatsoever, and are not about business travel, which is the subject of this site, I will re-iterate my earlier on topic post:

“But for all of those who question why BA didn’t come up with a new product in J or F for the A380/787 there is a very simple answer. Because the current one works. It remains popular.

And with BA linking the financial centre of London to other major centres of the world they have no problem filling the seats at a decent yield. And by sticking with the same seat and the same configuration they can get more seats into the same area. Simple.”

Quite right, rferguson.

The cabins remain popular, and the traffic stats show positive trends despite the fragile economic news.

In fact, quite apart from the usual criticisms, BA did intend to roll out its new cabins on the A380; it was the A380 delivery which was delayed, not the development of BA’s new cabins, which can be seen below:




The above cabins were rolled out on the 777-300ER in 2010 and will feature in BAs 777-300, 787 and A380 deliveries. We remain in anticipation of what will be installed onboard the A350s.

Cue usual non-added value anti-BA post below:
