I was again upstairs in my favourite seat (63J), but on this plane were the new British Airways Club seats.
The picture I took is not great but you can see the overall style. I really liked the new seats. The best features are:
– more comfortable. They are more comfy for both sitting but also very much more for sleeping.
– bigger and wider. This is partly achieved by the arm rests going down to level with the flat bed and so you have more room around the upper body. This makes a big difference. They claim you have 25% more space. The section where your feet rests is also bigger and a better shape, and also I could lie completely flat unlike before where it was about two inches too short (I am 6″ 2′)
– more private. Instead of the silly screens there is now a plastic screen that goes up and you can see nothing through it other than vague shapes, there is also “wings” round your seat back so you are blocked more from view when sleeping.
