You did not say which cabin you intend to travel in?
is reconfiguring its 777 "worldtraveler" (economy or cattle class) to 10 across 3,4,3, with a 30 to 31 inch pitch (ouch.) BA
has done a great job at cramming more seats through out the coach cabin of their aircraft.Disquising it as a "class," shame on them. (Why don't they just strap their economy customers to the aluminum tubing and be done with it?) They roll out cans of tuna once in the air, don't forget to share the can opener. You'll take turns with the water bottle, best to BYOB. There are no warm beverages by the time they get to seat " 98 Z." Though the back cabin on most airlines is most forgettable, you'll remember how uncomfortable your BA
flight was! Skip them now, or skip them later.
will not care if you fly them or fly a competitor, they don't have too. For best comfort and sanitation, remember to wear an adult incontinent pant... it gets pretty rank in the back ...you'll be fine. It is sad, what was once a great airline... the Worlds Favourite Airline... has fallen to high density "charter class."
The 777 cruise speed is higher then the A340, the 747-400 is fastest/highest.
Several off comments on VS
lately? No recent experience. You just can not beat the 747 400 for a fun flight.
The BWIA A340 will score higher for economy comfort, 2,4,2, plus BWIA is local and I always like to support the local airline of destination (origin.) BWIA meal service is quite good, at least on their caribbean routes to N. America.
Next time price and try AA
with a connection through MIA
? You maybe surprised at the more room through out coach, plus economy on AA
777 (MIA LHR
segment) is only 9 across 2,5,2 at a roomy 34 inch seat pitch. Good individual IFE too. Something Special in the Air.
In business or first, it is all a different world.
Have a great flight!
