BA 787 seat manufacturer question

Sat Jun 16, 2018 5:35 pm

Hey guys,
Can anyone tell me the name of the manufacturer that provides BA Club World seats on the 787-8 as well as First Class and Club World on the 787-9?
They look like very nice seats!
Cheers.

I’m not sure but I think Rockwell Collins manufactures the Club World seat.

They are an in house design. The Club world seat is the same on all wide body aircraft including the B777, B747, B787 & A380 but the latter two have a slight pallet refresh from the original 2004 design. Also the B787 seat needed some additional reinforcement design to be compatible with the B787s standards.

Not actually sure who manufactures them for BA however.

I guess its nice to hear someone likes the look of them, considering they are one of the most hated seats for a global carrier in J. The 787-9 F seat is nice and super sleek...but lets be honest, its barely a step up from the CX and AA excellent 773 J class seat.

BA has always been a stylish airline, unfortunately cost cutting has turned it into a hot mess.

I think the 10Y 777's also have the same club seat as the 787/A380. Not sure if it's just refurbished old ones or a completley new seat.

The sooner the new club seat comes out the better. I don't find them that bad personally but they do need change now. Be interesting to see what F gets upgraded too.

Sorry if this link is not allowed but it would appear it was designed in-house by BA with the help of design company Tangerine.

CX's 773 J seats are terrible, one of the worst new regional C seats out there and barely better than many of the W seats. I think you mean the 77W's seats.
