British Airways Club Class

BA has confirmed that all the Boeing 777s used on New York services have been retrofitted by Collins Aerospace with its newest Business Class seat called Club Suite.
The airline will be working with supplier Collins Aerospace to ensure the rest of the airline’s 777 aircraft are fitted, with the new cabin completed by the end of 2022.  The Club Suite was first rolled out in July 2019 on the first A350 and since then has been installed on the Boeing 787-10 aircraft fleet. It offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1+2+1 configuration. Boasting 40% more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, wi-fi, 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens, high definition gate-to-gate programming and PC / USB power.

Trevor Skelly, General Manager Integration Engineering for Collins, said: “The upgraded Club World cabin raises British Airways’ already high standards and provides commonality across their fleet of aircraft. Our Integration Engineering team has worked closely with British Airways designers for several years to bring the latest in Business Class comfort, style and privacy from concept to reality.”

As part of the upgrade, the airline’s Club Kitchen is also getting a makeover with new Club chillers and built-in storage for snacks, drinks and other refreshments, allowing customers in Club World to help themselves to refreshments at their leisure.
