    Hi all – a quick note to say that our sister website seatplans.com will be closing on Friday.

    We know that many readers of businesstraveller.com have posted flights reviews on the site over the years, so we wanted to give you notice, in case any of you wanted to copy your reviews and save them elsewhere.

    From Friday the site will redirect to a page on businesstraveller.com – we encourage readers to carry on posting flight reviews through our forum pages.

    Very sorry to hear that Mark.

    I had a great many reviews published, and was delighted that my words were sometimes good enough to win one of the great prizes.

    Thanks Mark and all the team for putting in so much work over the years.

    What a pity. Thank you meanwhile for the heads up. I could save my reviews.

    Trust the new edition will be updated,SQ have been flying their latest A380 with First on the UD,etc. for almost a year, ‘though only SQ have published the seating diagram with no opinions or reviews.
    Costly to write up every new aircraft with all the A350s, B787s entering service, to omit all the shorthaul sleeper business seats ‘though some airlines may offer free flights?
    I volunteer to review some of these for the new seatplans with some financial reward!

    Thank you, but there is no new seatplans.com. Not from us, anyway.

    Shame, as I used to look at it quite often and found it useful, though admittedly I was a rare contributor.

    Dear Mark

    Will the existing reviews not carry across to the bt page? It seems a shame to just lose all that content.

    Also, will there be a new section on bt with the seat plans themselves?

    I think this is a very nice idea! Especially if there were many reviews. You’d also help another people with that

    Hi IanfromHKG – there’s no plan to carry the reviews across to businesstraveller.com – we just don’t have the resources to do this.

    Likewise the seatplans themselves – many of them are now out of date, and again we just don’t have the resources to recreate them.
