    Thanks K1ngston.

    The 350 doesn’t excite me as much as the new C.. but I guess it will a few years before the fleet is renovated.. so until then its pot luck…

    Or ‘C’ meaning ‘Business Class’?

    J on long haul though. Are BA calling it a C class suite?

    As Martyn mentioned it esselle it could possibly mean “Cocktail” 🙂

    C for cocktail gets my vote!

    Half of the video is on the postponing. Not sure it is of interest.

    Now on the seat (since I couldn’t care less about the A350): The divider between seats seems to be rather fixed, with only a small window that can be opened when travelling with your other half. Not very nice it seems. Clinking glasses could be the source of a lumbago…

    We will have a review of the flight on Monday.

    It is only a short haul flight to Madrid, so limited in the sense of not experiencing the full White Company nightflight experience – but it will be interesting to see.

    C?

    Perhaps referring to new head of SIS, aka MI6….That’s M in Bond-speak.

    I am surprised to see TLV as the next A350 destination. I would have expected a new product on a route with a bigger rivalry. Did I miss something?

    Could it be that the cost of a ticket per mile/km in all classes is substantially higher than other route, eg North America? Yet, the planes are almost always full, in my experience. And there is now a lot of rivalry – ex LON there is also El Al, EasyJet, Wizzair and now Virgin.

    I’ve read about nearly all the blogs about the BA A350 and it seems not one has mentioned the fact that on the 350 there are six economy seats (35ABC HJK) with NO recline. At all. So disappointing for a brand new ULR aircraft and will be a difficult situation for the crew to deal with on….every….flight.
