B Med - Club World

Sat Apr 01, 2006 8:46 am

B Med operate over a dozen flights for BA in Central Asia, the Middle East and North Africa but try to book WT+ and you're put in WT, go for Club World and get you can relax in a "comfortable cradle seat" (first is not offered).

Will these aircraft ever get up dated - there are only seven so the when the newest product is fitted to the New York aircraft later in the year there'd easily be enough spare seats to fit them out (assuming money is tight) or will be BA be left offering three versions Club World from this summer ?

I thought B Med only operates the A320 family? Would that make the use of floor space with the long haul club product prohibitively expensive?

I also thought that B Med flies to destinations that need to have a lower cost base than BA because of lower yields, so I that logic would also discount the possibility of enlarged premium cabins too.

BMED does only fly the A320/A321 aircraft. The airline has on order 5 new A321's and the layout in which these arrive in will be how the fleet will operate. As metioned, there is not as much space on the A320 to start fitting them with bigger seats. As far as I'm aware with BMED they will just be offering the same 2 classes as they are at the moment.

I think I read somewhere that the A320 family floor wasn't suitable for the big, heavy flat beds that BA has in Club World, which is why BMed's A320s keep the Cradle seats from the old Club World.

the Club World flat beds are too heavy for the A32S apparently. BMED have introduced a newer version of the cradle seat with some minor differences to all new aircraft , at this moment G-MEDK and G-MEDL with AVOD and enchanced seating in club and PTV´s in WT. Considering there longest sector length is around 6 hours, I think this is perfectly acceptable.

I just came back from TBS with BMED and found it quite pleasant and in someways nicer than the dormitory CW on BA777´s...!
