Hi, I know that Caledonian Airways offered Highland First on thier DC10's, but I'm wondering if British Airtours (before if came Caledonian) offered Club World, particularly on their 747 G-BMGS, as the 747 mainly flew to MCO and the Caribbean from LGWand MAN. Many thanks form Timetable.

British Airtours was always strictly one class so never offered Club World or the equivalent. It was not until the airline became Caledonian that UK charter carriers started offering an enhanced cabin at a premium.

Caledonian actually offered Highland first on some of its tristars as well.

On the 757s "Clansman Class" was offered. Same seat pitch, but 3 seats for 2 people with the centre seat changed into a table !!!

You must be kidding! Club world more like an 130 seat 732 allowing the unfortunate KT occupants to rest their chin on their knees.

British Airtours offered no more leg room or comfort than any other charter airline of the time. British Airtours was certainly no 'premium' charter airline as one might expect from a BA company.

Maybe not, but I knew many people who felt much safer flying with British Airtours, with the knowledge that it was fully owned, run and maintained by BA, than on other charter airlines - both UK and Foreign - despite the incident at Manchester.

"incident"? while I am not an expert on the terminology of air safety , I would be astounded if a situation involving multiple fatalities qualifies as an "incident".
