Dubbed “Club Suite”, the new cabin is notable by the absence of the alternating forward- and backward-facing seat layout found in Club World cabins on BA’s existing long-haul aircraft.
Instead, the cabin will boast a 1-2-1 configuration, with individual doors for each seat, flat-bed seats, 40 per cent more storage space which include a vanity unit and mirror and 18.5-inch video monitors.
Each window seat will be angled outward (i.e. toward the window), while the two middle seats will be angled inward.
Furthermore, British Airways has enlisted Vienna-based caterers Do & Co for new in-flight menus and U.K.-based The White Company for fresh bedding.
The new A350-1000s aircrafts will offer 56 Club Suite seats, 56 World Traveller Plus seats and 219 regular economy seats. Satellite Wi-Fi will be available for all passengers on the A350s.
Last year Alaska Airlines announced that they were to offer VR headsets on a trial run for first-class passengers on two of its American routes.
