Currently being fitted on all of the airline’s Boeing 747-400 and 777-200 aircraft, the new seats are 25 per cent wider than the current offering, while also featuring a vastly improved in-flight entertainment system.
British Airways regional general manager, Roger Burr, said the new seats are currently available on the carrier’s Sydney-Bangkok-London service, with Sydney-Singapore-London coming soon.
“We are excited that in the near future, all British Airways customers flying Club World Business Class to and from Australia will be able to experience this award-winning premium travel product that both meets and exceeds their expectations,” he said.
