New BA Club World SeatBack to Forum
I traveled home from JFK yesterday in Club World – I was admiring the refreshed Club World to the CSD and she told me that the new business class seat design/product has been agreed and purchased. According to her (and she was adamant – politely!) the new seat will drop the ying yang configuration and will be “more like the competitors”
Though I’m skeptical – I’m just passing on what she said.
Oh and btw – the JFK Terminal 7 lounge is very tired !30 Jun 2018
It may very well be the case, but I’d bet BA would prefer to make the announcement rather than let it leak through their cabin crew. Hmmmmm.
It took all of 3 seconds for their ‘reality check’ survey results to make it beyond band-1 management, so no surprises when it comes to seating…but I would be very sceptical of anything Galley FM broadcasts. In fact, I’d lean towards believing the opposite of whatever they say!
T7 JFK is in the throes of a major makeover…but agree, the lounges have been tired for some time (and, like their aircraft, have been quite filthy).1 Jul 2018
Cabin crew may have news of a briefing for themselves if its very different ‘though it will be in the A350s and they’re not due awhile, has there been any announcement to refurbish the current aircraft?
IB already has its first A350, is there a review of the aircraft and its seating?1 Jul 2018
Airbus video of the IB A350, it appears the business seats maybe a version of the Zodiac Skylounge seat used by EK.
In a staggered 2-4-2 layout they’re all forward facing, inside and window seats may have to walk across the adjacent seat for aisle access? They do have large IFE screens, little more can be seen.
To be corrected on all these points since its only a few seconds in the video!1 Jul 2018
