BA's New Club World To JFK

Wed Apr 18, 2007 6:05 am

BA have announced that 'on 96 services a week' between LHR and JFK (but 'subject to change and aircraft availability') 'passengers can now enjoy' their second generation J-Class lie-flat seat. More at:
http://www.britishairways.com/travel/bapress/public/en_gb

The new generation bed is only available on 744 flights and so is not yet available on BA173, the daily 772 flight.

BA report that to date 17 (out of a long haul fleet of 100 aircraft) have been converted to date and that the conversion programme will be completed by the middle of next year.

Are they only currently offering the new Club World to JFK? Is there any chance of the new Club World to HKG in May?

there is certainly a good chance. Other routes that seem to have good chances are Rio/Miami/Kong Kong and a couple of others. 17 out of 57 744s finished, with a new one ready about every 4 or 5 days.

There is a chance of seeing the new Club World seat on any service, even one normally operated by 'Lo J' configured aircraft. But now BA have announced that you should see it on the JFK run I guess that for a few months my guess is that there will be a lower likelihood of seeing it on other services for a little while. (Currently BA at CWL is converting 'up to three' 744s a month.)

Does the whole plane get converted to AVOD at the same time as the installation of new club world ?

If so, I'm looking forward to my trip to JFK a the end of May

What about services to Newark? I am flying with BA on June 20th and want to know if AVOD will be installed by then on the B777.

No 777's arent being touched until autumn at the earliest, and some aren't capable of being fitted with AVOD without a complete re wire anyway.

Does anyone know what happens to the old seats? Do they just scrap them in the junkyard or sell them? Just wondering.
