Good seat for a day flight as part of a two-seat section. Old style BA cabin. USB-A socket and single 3.5mm jack from Touchscreen IFE. Be aware that footwell has electrical box between feet.
Of course this seat arrangement is dated and yes, if you are not traveling with a partner, looking straight at them when the divider is down between the seat is weird. The divider makes this window seat very private when it is up, but that can only happen in flight and makes service from the aisle very difficult for the FA. Also, there is clambering over outstretched legs to reach the aisle so I can see why people complain about this layout. However. 60A is great - masses of storage space (much more that the aisle seats) and as mentioned above, very private when the screen is up. I also found the seat comfortable, the controls easy to use and the space very generous. Also, this is upstairs on a 747 which is a fabulous, quiet place to be for a ride across the pond. I would book a spot up here every time and the service from the 2 FAs for 20 people is spot on. Having said that, I was traveling on a day flight of about 8 hours and I only travelled business on this one because there was a GREAT deal (about 200 more than Prem Econ) and there is no way I would pay 5 grand to do this. On an overnight maybe, but not a day flight so this was a nice treat. I love the 747 and the upper deck is the place to be, especially with the refurbished IFE we had which was well stocked, crystal clear with great touch screen controls. This was a very pleasant place to be for 8 hours
'Lucky' enough to get upgraded from biz. Originally given 4E but moved to K on departure. First class on the 747 has absolutely no handy storage (other than the little wardrobe) so you have no where to rest anything unless the table is out. At least in the bubble you have the little side cupboards on which to put things, like your iPad etc. Much more storage on the A380
I hate complaining about flying business class but if you are going to pay a lot of $$ for it... facing a stranger when you cannot implement the window divider is awkward. The seat when flattened for sleeping it is horribly uncomfortable. Too tight, footstool is not ample. Hard to reach controllers to the left of your arm. Storage drawer can't be accessed readily when bed is extended. No place for small trash. Having to climb over a strangers feet/legs to get out is dangerous and again, awkward.
Read the reviews and was happy to get this seat. I like being in the upper deck because it's a smaller and more private cabin. Nearly everyone was a solo biz traveler and no children/babies at all. This seat faces backward, but is an "exit row" so you can squeeze out of the seat along the wall and never have to step over anyone. There was tons of storage along the window for my handbag and laptop, so I didn't use the overhead bins at all. I slept fairly well, but you do still feel the other passenger in the connected seat every time they jostle.
This is a good seat, you can get down the side without crossing the legs of others. However how can BA sell Business class with such poor IFE old poor picture and very limited films and TV shows VERY POOR BA you should be ashamed utter disgrace Food very poor staff good, time keeping Poor ,I checked flights 219 and 218 Denver out and back for 3 months and time keeping was terrible . Changing back to AA next year
63k very good, you can get between seat and side to get out the rest of BA apart from staff is terrible late departures ,poor class boarding , very poor food and stone age IFE ,dirty said to be deep clean aircraft,BA disgraceful but you dont care, or you would retire these graceful 747s , I love them but they are now past their retirement date, but BA keep selling Business class tickets for a sub par service
Horrible. Completely unacceptable for 1st class. Uncomfortable seat, very little storage. Mattress seat cover was a joke and made for a sleepless overnight flight. Air France business class and premium economy were MUCH better for much less money.
Bright "mood" light bar attached to bulkhead behind and above seat during dinner is unpleasant if you've already eaten and wish to sleep. Cabin crew are unable to turn it off because it is connected to ceiling lighting.
A power box located under the seat directly in front, partially obstructs foot area.
Curvature of fugilage made the seat very tight and uncomfortable
The screen in this aircraft is very small, picture quality is poor and it seem to be from the 80s. They are not as depicted in the pictures by other users.
BA289 LHR->PHX Seat 2K. On my 747-400, there was a handicap head (restroom) aft of seat 5K and forward of the starboard galley shown in SeatGuru's 747-400 V1 and V2. There was only a single head on the port side behind 5A. The handicap head was quite large, biggest I've seen in years. There was a secured, heavy, curtain between 1st and coach and those 2 heads were reserved for 1st class use.
For taller passengers, this seat has extra leg room due to the pass-through access to the aisle, but without a seat tucked in behind. At 6'8", i was able to extend fully. I slept well, with my feet hanging over the end of the foot stool rather than tucking up on my side. Much better than the standard biz class seat on BA
this was an aisle seat which far less private and spacious than the window seats. I chose the aisle seat as it was a night flight. I am disabled and didn't want to be stepping over someone to get to the loo. I did want to use the flatbed. the window seat/daytime, and aisle seat night flight combo worked well for me.
LOVED this seat PLUSES - very private cabin space with loads of storage. NEGATIVE - need to step over legs of person in aisle seat to get to the loo. I'm disabled and this would have caused a problem for me if it had been a night flight. with only 20 seats upstairs it was very quiet and with two toilets it was great.
So i read some of the reviews and was hoping things might be better. WRONG. BA should be ashamed of its World Traveller Plus Cabin on the Lon-NYC-Lon route. The cabins looks like the same ones I flew on nearly 20 years ago when they introduced this new class - but with all the wear and tear still there. Seats and footrests were damaged, ent screens were tiny, and for my seat there was reduced leg room due to ent box under seat - something that as a passenger you could at least be warned about before selecting a seat. Despite being a bit shabby, the seat itself was reasonably comfy given it is slightly wider than World Traveller but it doesn't seem to recline as much as the controls make out. One positive - service was super good BUT that's not enough. BA MUST LIFTS ITS GAME or people will desert this cabin class in droves. Don't waste your money or your points!
While there is a little noise from flushing, the seat is great because you don't have to climb over anyone to get out. I'll select it again.
This seat is great because you don't have to climb over anyone to get out.
See my review for 62A for most comments. LHR to IAD on Jun 20 2019 - zero privacy in this seat, no extra legroom even though it's advertised as Exit Row. Minimal storage (there's a drawer for your laptop/small items). Benefit - nobody needs to cross over your legs due to the exit door. Forward facing, if that matters to you. Very enjoyable flight. Daytime flight, so most people were awake (previous flight was overnight - virtually silent cabin) - due to difficulty of access to window seat, the cabin crew uses the pass-through in this seat to reach the window seat - so many openings and closings of the partition, which means many awkward looks at/from that passenger. Upper level is the way to go - far less traffic and noise.
