There's a photo of the missing row on Twitter already:

BA are technically doing the same thing by limiting their Club Europe cabin to 8 rows instead of 12 and 14 on the A320/A320neos and A321neos respectively.
On every Club Europe connection I’ve booked, I’ve been bumped down to Euro Traveller on the shorter flight at the time of booking. There's no such policy. What has happened is that you've been done over by one of BA's famous IT glitches. For some strange reason when booking a flight with a connecti...Jump to post

At the moment there are no plans to refit the LGW frames with Club Suites.Jump to post
The BA Club world seat is disliked mainly due to the fact it has been around for so long whereas the competition have consistently improved their product over time. There's also the issue of having to step over someone if you are in one of the window/middle seats and some also are not keen on facing...Jump to post

This isn't anything new. BA have been offering this for the best part of a year. If you read the article, you'll see that what's new is that they are continuing this feature rather than canceling it once the pandemic is over. I know what the article says.

Some interesting BA aircraft swaps on the LHR-JFK route tomorrow (Jan 19th). A350-1000 on BA175, and a Boeing 787-9 on BA115. Can assume its due to the 5G issue.Jump to post
What is the status of the new updated F product on the 777-200ER and the 777-300ER? Currently looks like JFK is getting the new ones with 8F and ORD is getting the old birds with 14 F?

With 4 x B772s leaving in 2025 to be replaced with 779s, it's a big expense to put their latest CS in a model being retired after 2yrs or so. No?? Well some of the older ones have had the new seat for 2 years now, so by then they would have had it for at least 5-6 years. That length of time would p...Jump to post

It depends on the perks you get with said Status versus what you get in Business. If we take BA as an example, a non status passenger has to pay for seat selection on non-flexible Business class fares, whereas those with status get it for free at the time of booking or the week before. Plus you get ...Jump to post
What routes do you think will be announced? I think they will either resume flights to Cancun or fly to Mexico City.

Further, the seat will only start being introduced on the A380s from 2023, with the entire fleet of 12 having been upgraded by 2025.

I believe the 78Xs have it as well, plus a few 77Es. I'd guess the newest 77Ws do as well but not seen anything.

Just did a booking test run. Flights are currently at 990 pounds return for the month of august and September. BA is charging 3500 for the same dates. Then again I wouldn’t expect B6 to come in that high. They’ll of course undercut legacy as they’re entering the market This is for business class BT...Jump to post
The main issue for BA here is the cabin configurations on their wide bodies are pretty premium heavy, which means that they really don’t have huge capacities. People going for Palma aren’t going to pay a huge premium for a flat bed, as they may do for a 12 hour flight to Singapore. Even TUI normall...Jump to post
This may be a stupid question, but after 17th May, do you need a COVID test, or are there any other travel restrictions, if taking a UK domestic flight (MAN to LHR). No international connections, purely a domestic flight. No testing requirements for domestic flights within the UK. In fact you can d...Jump to post

The one of interesting is LN1159 which is the first for Iraqi Airways.

BA (LHR birds), TK, KE, and JL still operate 9 abreast 777s. Some of NHs remain 9-abreast, but I believe they're transitioning to all 10-abreast.
