BA268 11/30/06 New Club World Seats

Sat Dec 02, 2006 4:35 am

Just letting you folks know that BA268 LAX-LHR operated on Nov 30. It was only the 2nd revenue flight for the new Club World 747 because it had been pending certification. I had the pleasure of trying it out and I must say that it feels a lot different than before. Hope you get a chance to ride it as well.

Hope you can provide more details. Many people are waiting to hear actual passenger experiences and impressions.

How is it different and what did you like or dislike about the new seats and cabin?

Did you get any pics?

Casing of the seats is nice, shoulder area actually wider. Seats are more cushiony, the PVTs are very sharp looking. Light fixtures give it a nice touch of serenity. What I didn't care for much was the 2 middle seats. You must know the person next to you really well because the screen doesn't come out far enough to provide complete privacy. And if the person next to you snores, then good luck. Quick solution to this is attachable extensions to the dividing screen.
