Flew BCN to LHR this morning on an A320. Captain announced it was a 2 weeks only in service. However I noticed the plane was completely fitted out in 6 a breast seating. None of the usual flexible seats in the front that can convert to 2 + 3. Of course the middle seat in club was blocked out but the seats themselves were identical throughout the plane.

A while ago BA moved to 6 a breast in Club Europe (with B and E not being allocated) but went back to 5 a-breast (with seat E blocked out) after customer feedback.

Does anyone know if there has been a change of plan. Is this config the shape of things to come?

I'm pretty sure this is because of the new space saver seats they've put into their new aircraft... As for the CE seating (which has always been a rip off IMO) I don't think the new seats can be pulled out - hence just the middle being blocked.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...

yes they were definitely slimline seats and as you correctly say, cant be pulled out to make them wider.
Apart from the catering and being at the pointy end of the plane, the differentiator for CE has always been 4 abreast seating which is still there as middle seats not used, and wider seats albeit only by a couple of inches. Seems now that size isnt important as seat width same throughout the plane.

About a year ago, BA fixed the convertible seats in 6 abreast config, and left the centre seat empty.
After negative feedback, this was rescinded and we went back to converting the seats to 5 abreast for C class, but still selling only 4 abreast.
When this was decided, the seats for some new A320 were ordered in the fixed 6 abreast config.
These aircraft are still being delivered, and about the last six A320 have these seats.

No idea what the future plan is.

The newest 5 of BA 320s, namely G-EUYF, 'YG, 'YH, 'YI and 'YJ were delivered fitted throughout with the slim back, cloth covered seat. In these aircraft rows 1 to 13 have a 34" pitch and rows 14-27 a 30" pitch.

Does anyone have a photo of this interior?
