I believe the Club World seats on the refurbed 767s will be the same as the A318 on CW LCY.
I am lead to believe this is not the case. The CW
seats on the LCY
A318's face forwards in pairs. The new 767 CW
seats will face forwards and backwards in pairs, as they do now, so I don't think they can be the same seats as on the A318's. They will be similar to the current 767 CW seats but revamped and refreshed, as the 767 cabin dimension doesn't allow the same seat carcass as on the 744/777 to be used. That's my understanding from those in the know.
As for the A380, Hong Kong, Johannesburg, and Los Angeles are the first long term routes planned, although the first few months could see more unusual sectors flown to increase operational experience. Philadelphia was one of the early training routes for the introduction of the 744's, although PHL looks set this time to see the BA 787's very early on, rather than the A380's.[Edited 2011-12-11 07:53:32]
