I flew to London in late April with British Airways in First. I have to say that I was impressed. All the way I was on 747-400s
Excluding G-CIVX, both aircraft were fitted with BA's superb new inflight entertainment system. There is now a huge touch screen with audio video on demand plus the previous inseat video player. The new system now has 18 video channels and the screen has much better resolution.
The refitted aircraft are also fitted with a personal phone that previous aircraft lacked. BA's First is unrivalled in privicy as every passenger (14) sits facing the windows on an angle. It is pretty hard to describe but there is a small opening but then there is the seat in front which makes it like a personal cabin.
The materials are blue cloth on the seats with a swede type of material on the side of the seats. The cloth looks pretty cheap but i think BA will shortly be changing it to leather like SQ
BA have an excellent meal table, while it does not slide like SIA, it is excellent for forking. It is not flimsy like the folding Club World trays which are impossible to work from
All aircraft were fitted with a very easy to use electronic adjustment for the seat including a very affective lumbar support.
Service varied enormously, as a 14 yr old, the cabin crew often ignored me which I found pretty annoying considering I paid the same fare. Food was excellent.
Well, apart from the sometimes bad service, BA is excellent to fly with in FIRST. Oh, I musn't forget the great Molton Brown toiletries kits and the SUPERB 100% cotton pyjamas set. Soo comfortable. If comfort is important, fly BA
