BA to introduce new World Traveller Plus

BRITISH AIRWAYS has become the first UK airline to take delivery of the ultra long-range Boeing 777-300ER.  The aircraft is expected to go into service in September with a four-class configuration: First, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller.  All passengers will benefit from a new in-flight entertainment system that features more than 230 TV shows, 70 films and 400 CDs.  For once it is the back end of the aircraft that is entirely new with the premium economy section (World Traveller Plus) for the first time featuring a purpose-built Recaro shell type seat that features the cushion angle, changing automatically when the backrest is placed in a reclining position.  When the passenger stretches his legs out, the flexible front edge yields to reduce pressure on the back of the thighs.  This combination enables a more comfortable seating position for relaxed flying.  Refreshment offerings are as per the normal Economy section.
