First Class from Gatwick

British Airways has announced the introduction of a First Class cabin on four popular Caribbean routes from Gatwick flown by Boeing 777-200 aircraft.

Customers flying on holidays to Barbados, Bermuda, St Lucia and Port of Spain (Trinidad) will be able to experience the new BA premium cabin with a 60% wider seat, private wardrobes, personal electronic blinds and balanced privacy that creates an intimate experience.

British Airways also recently introduced food and drink enhancements in its World Traveller Plus Premium Economy cabin on all long haul flights from Gatwick. 

Customers are now offered a welcome drink before take-off and the choice of two entrees from the Club World menu.

The dedicated World Traveller Plus cabin offers more privacy with larger seats, adjustable headrests, lumbar support and leg rests.

Colm Lacy, British Airways' Head of Commercial Gatwick, said: "These are significant steps forward for our premium customers at Gatwick.  The introduction of the new First cabin means our customers can enjoy the very best travel experience British Airways has to offer”. www.ba.com
