Seating on BA flights operated by StobartBack to Forum
I will fly next week on a Stobart operated flight (E90). While I saw this BT article, I could not find anything on seating. BA.com gives the following configuration in business: A aisle CD. No B, and a single A. I’ve seen this on other airlines, but not on BA nor on the seat plan of other Stobart operated flights. Any new policy or should I just consider this is a bug?

I believe the Stobart aircraft is an Embraer E190, not E90. I have flown this type of aircraft with other operators (AeroMexico, Belavia) with a 1 x 2 configuration in first three rows, and 2 x 2 in the rear. Unlike BA they were fitted with larger seats in business, hence the 1 x 2 config, with a fixed divider between the cabin sections. The aisle was off-set at the front then ‘kinked’ at the divider to be central in the economy section. Maybe the Stobart aircraft will have a similar layout. The Business section could not be extended due to the different seats and fixed bulkhead unlike the BA E190/195 which is effectively laid out as all economy.8 Mar 2019

Correct. Here’s our piece from last October.8 Mar 2019
Gosh, a real business class seat in Europe. Quite disturbing! Last time I saw one, I was flying Aeroflot! Hope we’ll have more of these Stobart operated flights out there!21 Mar 2019
