What is the name of the BA class that is in between the Economy and Business class. I was hoping of going to Seattle for a long weekend but I would like to get there in a fairly fresh state and I do not fancy spending thousands of pounds for a Business Class ticket. For those of you who have traveled in this class, my question is: Is this intermediate class worth the extra and what does it offer?

The configuration shown above is on aircraft with a low-density configuration and a large business class. This is not the configuration that serves SEA. I'm unfamiliar with that config since it's been some time since I've worked with an aircraft that features it.

Got upgraded to World traveler plus on a BA 777 LGW to DFW couple weeks ago.Returned cattle class the next day and I certainly missed the extra leg room, foot rest etc.
On the 777 layout World traveler plus is a 2 4 2 configuration as opposed to the usual 3 4 3 in cattle class, also they close off both forward and rear curtains making quite a small cabin area.
I have also been upgraded to BA'a business class on this route and in terms of ticket cost the World traveler plus seems quite a good deal.

World Traveller Plus is so worth it IMHO especially if you are tall. In fact I bought my first WTP ticket a couple of years ago and haven't gone further back since!
Another advantage is that since BA sorted out the Exec Club (OK, stop laughing everyone!) you can upgrade to Club World using your miles from WTP with the bonus that you will recoup about half the miles back.
