British Airways will revamp its fleet of 95 Airbus short-haul aircraft over the next year to be used for flights in its European and domestic networks. The new seats emulate the design of the airline’s A380 and Boeing 787 planes, with ergonomically designed charcoal gray leather seats creating additional knee space for customers. LED lighting systems feature blue tones for boarding, a candlelit mood for dining, and a gentle white for cruising and landing. Seat-backs can hold tablets or be used for magazine storage. A four-way moveable headrest provides adjustable comfort while the seat-back table can be moved for optimal positioning. Business-class seats will remain in a two-to-two configuration with the middle seat free and a new central console table between. The new seats are manufactured by B/E Aerospace in Kilkeel, Northern Ireland, and all elements of the design are sourced from the United Kingdom. The new design will contribute toward the airline’s target of reducing net carbon emissions by 50 per cent by 2050 with reduced CO2 emissions per passenger.
