Flying Biz On BA

Sun Nov 16, 2003 7:56 am


just received an awesome offer for a transatlantic on BA, flying Biz-class...

is it worth the cash? What will service look like? Seat pitch? IFE? Drinking supplies... (not aiming on getting drunk, just a couple of civilized fun-beers...)

Thx for sharing experiences.

i'm not sure as to the exact pitch. it was really comfortable though, and i stand about 6'3". the food was better than any airline food i've had before, but i don't remember what it was exactly. i don't remember paying for alcohol though. the service was really good, with the exception of this one FA that was really snotty. i saw her in about the first hour of the flight then never again. my one gripe, the lavs were a bit small. it was hard fitting myself and my gf in there if you know what i mean. as to IFE, i had my woman and was pretty tired too, so i saw no movie on the flight.

in my opinion, it's worth the price.

Cancidas, you randy bastard. If you were flying BA biz class, what the hell were you doing in the toilet? Isn't that what flat beds are for?! I flew BA biz class to Sydney a few months ago and on the way out I slept from Vienna to Vietnam, quite literally. And with enough privacy that I could have pleasured my ladeeeee without the humiliation of cramming myself into a toilet.

Yes, it's worth it. BA have the best J class in the air. I would choose it over any F class, with the possible exception of BA's own (and Qantas' which is basically identical). I can't believe JAL have just introduced a new J class product which doesn't have proper flat beds. Get with the program!
