Nearly 70,000 passengers booked British Airways’ new Business Class cabin on domestic UK flights in the programme’s first six weeks, making it “a real hit”, the airline said last week.
BA chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: “Club Europe is proving incredibly popular with our customers on domestic services. In just a month-and-a-half we’ve had nearly 70,000 take to the skies with us and the feedback we’re getting is great.
“Customers are telling us that they love the new consistency throughout their travels with us, particularly for those transferring on to our European and long-haul networks.
Cruz said passengers were also enjoying Club World additional benefits launched across all Europe services at the same time, including lounge access, free food and drink, dedicated check-in desks and priority boarding and an upgraded baggage allowance.
The Club Europe cabin features a 2+2 configuration with the middle seat free and a central console table giving passengers a functional space for drinks, snacks and personal devices and freeing up the main table for work or a meal.
The airline has also enhanced the catering for all Club Europe services across its short-haul network.

My wife and I travelled on BA to Aberdeen on a day trip on 7 April and apart from the blanked off middle seat we saw no difference to economy and thought it EXREMELY poor value for the substantial additional cost involved. not much of an improvement on EasyJet !
