BA rolls out fully-flat business class seats on mid-haul routes

11 Oct 2012 by BusinessTraveller

British Airways has begun the process of fitting out ex-Bmi aircraft with a new fully-flat product to be used on mid-haul routes.

As previously reported (see online news July 18), a total of seven former Bmi A321 aircraft are being refitted with 23 Thompson Aero Seating business class seats, featuring a 78-inch fully-flat bed and 45-inch seat pitch, and 131 economy seats with a 31-inch pitch.

In addition the aircraft are being fitted with the Thales i5000 AVOD in-flight entertainment system. To see a seatplan of the refitted aircraft, click here.

Two of the aircraft refits have now been completed, with a further two to be completed by the end of this month, followed by one in November and two in December.

The move has been discussed in detail on our forum over the last few months – to join in the debate click here.
