That and the reversed facing seats in BA Club. How do they all feel?
I recently had the pleasure of flying BA
club world rearwards both ways from LGW
On the way out sat in 4A which is the rearmost seat in the club world cabin in G-VIIO (no first class) and faces a bulkhead. I'd say this is a great seat as out of the window there is a great view of the GE
engine and the flexing wing (and boy, does it flex on take-off). Also, to get to the aisle, you don't have to climb over anyone else's feet in seat B. On take off the seat is reclined slightly (there's a special setting on the seat control console) so on the ground you are tilted backwards. However, on climb, due to the incline of the aircraft, the seat becomes vertical. It was extremely comfortable and there was lots of space and it was also nice to be facing my fellow traveller for the journey (if you are next to a stranger there is a privacy screen of course).
Return on G-VIIP was in 2A which is the forwardmost seat (row 1 is confined to the centre section only) but once you settle down flat for the night to get to the aisle you have to climb over the legs of the passenger in 3B. Getting in and out was a bit of a work of art as there isn't much space to store things around your seat and putting it all safe before negotiating the climb out could be tricky, especially if you are less agile!
However, couldn't fault BA
and the extra money was well worth it and flying backwards very comfortable!
