BA New Club World Routes - LAX?

Sun Dec 17, 2006 4:31 am

Hi everyone...I remember reading on here that some of the routes that would get the new Club World seats immediately would be IAD, LAX and JNB...or something. Am flying to LAX next week on the BA269 flight and am wondering if there will be a chance that the new seat will be available. Anyone have a clue?

Thanks

LAX got the first revenue service with the new Club World a couple weeks ago. Reason for this was pending certification from the US. Also BA268/269 LHR-LAX-LHR operated in the new Club World configuration as well last night (Dec 15). I can't remember how many aircraft are being retrofitted per month, but hard to tell if you'll be lucky enough next week.

I would follow this thread very closely, it has the movements of G-BNLN (747-400) which has the new club world seats installed. It has already made some runs to LA so if you are lucky you might be able to catch it.

I'm flying SEA-LHR-BLR next Sunday the 24th and returning the 31st. It's a shame that I won't get a shot at trying BA's new product as I'm on all 777s I believe.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

Does anybody have any pics of the complete new cabin (i.e. with new wall colours / furnishings / lighting / kitchen)?

There is only one B744 G-BNLN converted.
It is operating HKG-LHR today then BA269 to LAX 18/12.
The next one will not be converted until Jan.
