Reply To: BA Seating

Back to Forum


I was under the impression that you thought I could not count.

For the record I am basing my count of 5 Emirates A380 return flights per day on data freely available on the internet, and I have not physically been to Heathrow in person and counted all their flights over a 24 hour period.

Back on topic, I think BA need to improve seating in all classes and roll it out quickly. However they could start with sending their first A380 to DXB every day to better compete with EK, not some odd schedule to LAX.

They could also send their second one there from the start of the winter season instead of 1 747 and 2 777s daily. If the competition is using A380s then BA should put an A380 on those routes to help it better compete. It would also save a daily slot pair.
