Anyways, my take, BA needs to go all aisle access, the food from what I have seen in trip reports with the new menus looks good. But with a couple of exceptions, it's the seats that kill BA for those that care.
I'm not quite sure why people of this forum are bashing BA CW product so much.
It was revolutionary, when originally introduced back in 2000.
Today, while not the best out there, I find it on par with the competition, particularly UA and AA.
Having tried all three, BA seat didn't seem worse than others.
I find the bed pretty comfortable and not that tight (and I'm not too small - 5'11").
Window seats offer great privacy, and having to step over someone's feet is not such a big deal.
Also, if you manage to grab a bulkhead seat with unrestricted access, you enjoy both freedom and extra legroom as a bonus.
The 8-abreast comparison is unfair because the seats are staggered and the actual seat width is no worse than others.
Storage is indeed limited, but you learn to cope.
Definitely better than UA pmCO 2-2-2 seats on 787 or the pmUA 8-abreast seats.
While AA 77W seat was nice, it didn't live up to the hype. The service was so terrible, I promised myself to never come back.
Also, BA's super-high-J 747 interiors look fresh and the IFE is brand new.
