The highly anticipated business-class seats will debut on the airline’s first A350 aircraft when it arrives this July.
British Airways’ latest business-class seat product is the newly branded Club Suite, scheduled to arrive on the first of its A350 aircraft this July. Initially, the A350 will serve the London-Madrid route before operating long haul from October 1.
Alex Cruz, British Airways’ chairman and CEO, said: “Each new suite has direct aisle access and comes with a personal door – design features which were incorporated as a direct result of the feedback we’ve had from our customers. We’ve worked hard to ensure every aspect of the Club World experience from the lounges we’ve refreshed, to the new gourmet menus from Do&Co on flights from Heathrow, and the luxurious bedding we’ve introduced from The White Company exudes the very British style and quality customers expect from us.”
Here are four highlights to look forward to:
Greater privacy and space
If privacy is your idea of in-flight luxury, then the Club Suite nails it with a suite door, direct-aisle access, as well as flat-bed Rockwell Collins Super Diamond seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. The spacious seats also come with 40 percent more storage, including features like a vanity unit and mirror, Wi-Fi, and 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens.
A better sense of well-being
Forget about feeling tired and jetlagged, the A350 aircraft will help to promote a sense of well-being due to its reduced noise levels, high ceilings, and ambient lighting which is intended to complement the time of day and outside light. Expect to leave the flight feeling rested thanks to higher levels of humidity and refreshed air as the cabin pressure is equivalent to an altitude of just 1,826 meters.
New products aside, the A350 also has a 25 percent lower fuel burn, which significantly reduces CO2 emissions.
The three-cabin A350 will feature the latest 56-seat World Traveller Plus cabin with new furnishings including plush pillows and warm quilts, amenity kits, as well as an enhanced service and improved dining experience.
