BA are to fly the first aircraft NLN ,fitted with the new Club World Seats today to LAX.
Was fortunate to fly on the shakedown flight to trial the new seats, result, excellent, very comfortable, big improvement, couple of minor hiccups which probably won't even be noticed by fare paying pax. The new Video on Demand system, brilliant. The new seat "Z Bed" setting suberb. New Club kitchen help yourself best I've experienced.
Total overall result.......Certainly one of the best around, well done BA, been a long time coming.

I have a point to ask though then about the window seats?

If the config is like the last club world then if the people in the isle seats are fully reclined and sleeping, how do the FA serve the people in the window seats?? it looks like with the little privacy shells that they have given every seat, and with the private divider that it will be very hard for FA to serve them?
Perhaps you can shed some light on this??

I'm doing BA's annual credit review next week - any chance of emailing me some of the promotional stuff for it? I'm more interested in how quickly the product will be rolled out, and what routes are getting it first.

Cheers,

CM

It will be on the Terminal 1 routes first as the first aircraft fitted is one of the higher power H-T engine aircraft so will operate at Los Angeles and Johannesburg plus possibly the other routes first.

Not G-BNLN - both SFO flights are currently operated by Low-J aircraft, and BNLN is a High-J

If it operated to LAX today, then it's planned flights would probably be:

1 Dec: BA025 LHR-HKG
2 Dec: BA026 HKG-LHR

After which, it could then go on to operate the BA005/006 NRT flight, the BA269/268 LAX flight, or be moved across to T4 where it would operate mainly JFK routes.

Are they still putting the New Club World between WTP & WT on some of the aircraft?

No - not on the high J (70 seat) aircraft. These will stay as they are currently. the ones to be changed are the low J (38 seat) aircraft which will be reconfigured to 52 J seats with the WTP in between F and J on main deck. (Upper deck stays J)

Apparently it will be easier. The new divider is electronic so th eFA just has to push a button. Much easier than mucking around with the Fan divider

How will their pension deficit affect their credit?

Also, anything interesting in their RFP?

Thanks in advance..
