But all the same, did we conform this NEW seat is NOT going on the A380?
If so, is this indicative of anything regarding the A380 and British Airways?
Trying to be gentle here cause peoples feelings seem to be very sensitive regarding this wonderful double-decker airplane.
Haven’t ridden it yet but hear it is supremely quiet which is something I value!
If they were to reconfigure the A380 for the new seat I'd imagine they'd have to move the cabins around, it doesn't look like this seat would fit on the upper deck. While a separate product, but similar enough, Qatar have said that even the 787 is too narrow for the QSuite product fitted on the 777/A350s and it will require a slimmed down version of the QSuite, I can't imagine BA offering a full fat and skim version of the new Club World seat on the same plane (if they are to do it on the A380 at all).
They have said they'll be unveiling a new First product, which I can only imagine would have to be something similar to Emirates new 777 First/a 1-1-1 layout to really differentiate itself from the Club Suite, so it's possible the new F could be upstairs in the forward cabin, in which case J could take up the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd cabins downstairs, with Y in the rear cabin as it is now, F in the 1st cabin upstairs, and then W in the 2nd, with Y in the remaining rear cabins upstairs.
We know that BA likes a hi-J/comparatively low Y plane, so an A380 in that configuration could be quite interesting! Or they could just retire them, who knows.
