BA squeezing two more rows into short-haul aircraft.Back to Forum
Another circle on BA’s descent into the maelstrom. Why don’t they just admit that they are an LCC and stop pretending?
Do people still buy so-called Duty Free on s/h flights? I don’t think I have ever seen anything sold, but I don’t pay much attention.3 Jan 2018
Duty-frees can only be sold on routes outside the EU. On internal EU flights. BA sells “High Life Shopping” at taxed prices.
This is all very confusing….with a flexible Club Europe cabin how can they have a greater pitch in some of the rows??!
So it looks as though the QR aircraft will be operating from LGW if they are covering the extra slots inherited from Monarch.
As Capetonianm so wisely puts it….it is looking like another job experience kids shambolic idea!! 🙂3 Jan 2018
At a time when BA are starting Operation Squeeze by reducing legroom on their short haul fleets in the Club Europe cabin to 28” seat pitch, I have just had an email from Wizz regarding their new Premium service…with an increase to 32” to 36” of legroom! Sounds good to me.9 Jan 2018
@Cheeryguy…. how can it stay at 30″? The Club Europe ‘cabin’ is a variable and can be as little as three rows but can be as much as 20rows on an A321. You are suggesting that if the CE pitch is to stay at the measly 30″ then the rear rows will be even less than 28″ when Operation Squeeze starts.
A contact has confirmed that on fitting the extra two rows the pitch will be reduced from row 1 to the rear row…approx 28″, except for the em exit rows. The new Neos will be delivered with this config and one less toilet.9 Jan 2018
