    Just done old First to CPT……like an old slipper….comfy, no gimmicks, lots of space….

    The meal was superb ( the famous soufflé )

    The Purser was the best cabin crew I have ever seen…on any airline.

    We arrived early.

    A perfect BA flight.

    well i’m back and i finally managed the Holy grail that is NF… Oddly enough the outbound LHR-LAX was an old bucket. This flight had nothing going for it.. 8 minute bus trip in stifling heat to T5 C gates, so no priority, an old plane with old first and mid-J . That said the crew were amazing and i actually overheard the CSM explaining to a pax that they had to try so much harder when on this config and even their hearts sank when they boarded.

    conversely.. BA204 from MIA-LHR was incredible. I saw the blue “hue” from the gate and said a small thank you prayer in my head. 2E/F on a 777 were pefect seats for a night flight. The food was faultless and the only gripe i could muster was that the cabin was too hot for sleeping – but in the absence of personal vents i guess there isn’t much they can do

    i have to say, that even as a seasoned flyer, i was totally “wowed” by new first and will never risk a flight that doesn’t have it guaranteed, any more. I’d rather do J

    That’s good news Gordy – delighted that you managed at long last to experience NF! 🙂

    I know this slightly off topic but I couldn’t help mentioning how pleased I was to find that the fabulous leather armchairs that used to adorn the old T4 Concorde Room, those lined up facing the window that we used to sit in while admiring the plane itself, have found new life in the Club Lounge at LGW. In those days, the Concorde Room really did mean the Concorde Room, we used to be able to board directly from the lounge. Call me nostalgic!

    On a related topic, I have had quite a good run of New First on ORD and YYZ routes in 2012. Only ended up in old first once or twice I think.

    Does anyone know how the A380 will be configured?

    By your final comment, it would appear that you’ve been missing all the fun over on the “BA A380 provisional seat map” thread which ranges from zzzz, boring, to “the end of civilisation as we know it!” – to give you a flavour of the thread to date. Enjoy!

    Err, forgot to add that you can see the provisional seat plan for yourself at:

    FC traveller… at the moment… its planned to have 14 seats on the main deck.

    esselle I’m afraid I dont get your comment “CCR was, sadly, a different story. Breakfast sent back three times; cold, items missing, and to top it off, nobody in the kitchen capable of frying an egg”

    what is “CCR”???

    Thanks. I clearly need to get back up to speed with the new threads which I haven’t done for a while.

    This thread is now 2 years old. How much longer will the topic go on for?

    Before all BA metal will be equipped with NF, there might be a New NF in the pipeline or rollout.
    Two years and still going on….what a painful and tiring process. The ads and videos promoting NF are already collecting dust, but the pöanes still offer an old cramped product.

    CCR = Concorde Room

    Cape Town seems to be a bit of a lottery.

    Have a good flight!
