Rear facing window seat. Was strange sitting backward at first, but you get used to it. With the partition between the two seat up, it feels like you are in your own little exclusive cabin. The seat is very comfortable and adjusts into many positions including of course completely flat. The fold out tray has plenty of room for your food and drink when it's time to it. The entertainment system is responsive and BA usually have a great selection of current and older movies, TV series and games. I loved playing battleship with whomever was in 10K! Cabin service was perfect. Not too intrusive and leaving a cart full of snacks and a fridge full of goodies you are allowed to raid at any time. Not that you need to as the food is very filling. It might not look very generous portion wise, but there are enough courses to fill you up. I've never felt so full on an aircraft. I never once actually nabbed anything from the cart or fridge. The view of the frankly ginormous engine was also spectacular!
Can’t write a review when not been able to travel
Terrible position. Light from toilet constantly hits you in face as door open making sleep very difficult even with eye mask. Other passengers continually use this row as a short cut to change isles for toilets, kicking your legs as they trip over you. The privacy screen between this seat and the adjacent one is a joke.
If flying Business London to Shanghai, far better options than BA. V. basic/old-school, uncomfortable, Business-class seat, with extremely limited and inaccessible storage. The video screen tilt had broken, the film selection was dated, and I repeatedly had to ask for empty coke cans to be cleared after they had been left on my table for over 3 hours. The crumpled shopping magazine was torn with pages missing. A previous pasenger's toiletries were still in the single storage drawer. All v. grubby and, notwithstanding age of aircraft, much of it avoidable if proper service standards observed. As a further aggravation, passengers not seated in Business regularly opening the curtain to use the bathroom (in full view of flight crew) causing long queues to form. Not a flight/experience would wish to repeat. BA Business class ticket price should reflect the age/state of the aircraft and service levels being provided. Contrast with shorter, 5-hour, Business flight with Singapore Airlines from Singapore to Shanghai could not have been starker - modern aircraft with an incredibly comfortable and well-equipped seat (plentiful and acccessible storage, mirror, light, in-built large TV screen, great entertainment selection, etc.) coupled with fantastic service. When is BA going to make the proper investment and relaunch itself as the Business carrier it used to be?
In this eight across configuration (compared to seven across on the 787 which used to fly this route, AUS-LHR) the 777 "premium economy" is much less comfortable and roomy. For whatever reason, they've removed the tray tables from the seat in front and put them in the armrests. This makes the armrest solid, wider, and immobile. It also makes the seat somewhat narrower than otherwise. A poor design and a real downgrade from the 787. I understand that the 777 will soon be replaced on this route with the new A-350. Lord only knows what new tortures the BA executives have in store for us in the future.
I disagree with the "Bad seat" rating for 22A. Whilst it doesn't have a window immediately next to the seat there is a window in the emergency exit door a foot or so in front – just lean forward if you really want to look outside. The seat has similar benefits to seat 22B, zero leg room issues even for the tallest of passengers, plus you are not in the isle getting disturbed by passers-by and you have something to lean against with the bit more shoulder width. The tip about the small floor vent is spot on – if too cool, just cover with a magazine or the cushion. I’m surprised seats 21D-G are not red rated as (at least during my flight) passengers were using it as a corridor, disturbing people in those seats.
I've travelled from Madrid to London on several occasions using this flight and Iberia 3177, as both are long haul aircraft with proper Business Class seats. If you are in the same position, choose Iberia. Why? The business cabins are cleaner, smarter, more comfortable and the IFE works on Iberia... BA claim the do not have a licence to show anything on the IFE system in European flights. I was given the wrong meal on my flight, but this was address shortly afterwards. It's no surprise BA have recently been ranked the third worst airline, behind Ryanair and Vueling, as their service becomes cheaper and less efficient.
G-YMML is tired. Premium economy and economy seats are of the old configuration with 6” touch screen IFE that is out of focus. Leg rests are broken, IFE control stick comes away from seat. Fingers crossed this gets phased out for A350!
The seat can feel cold, its not to do with the door but the air vent by your foot, put a magazine over it so that instead of blowing on your legs it points along the cabin wall and it's fine.
Great First Class seat location, not to close to the galley to be disturbed! The seat was comfortable, the service and the attention to the amenities was wonderful. The space is well utilized for comfort, the only criticism would be they could use an additional storage area for securing passengers items in the seat area. The coat locker is limited and there is storage along the window area that could be converted to a closed space. However the crystal and China updates on the meal service/drinks is very tastefully done. Again service by the flight attendants is alway top shelf, BA is famous for this and they always seem to happy and helpful to assist. Meals were outstanding, again reflecting the change that BA has taken to improve!
I flew from LHR to GIG on seat 49A and I was very surprised. Very comfortable seat for economic class standards. I didn't feel cramped at all, although the seat is not alligned with 48A. I would definetely chose 49A if I travelled in this aircraft again.
great choosing this seat as there is the extra legroom created by the narrowing of the craft meaning only 2 seats in row. not too much noise from being near galley/restroom.
Travelling Club World with BA is only for masochists as there are many better options. Narrow beds, cramped surroundings so you bump into the wall, the ceiling (I am only 69 inches tall) and the inconvenience the layout causes seat 11B are just some of the criticisms. it made me appreciate Qantas.
Absolutely the most uncomfortable flight I've ever taken. The seats are so close together I couldn't watch the screen on the seat in front of me. I'm 5'4' 140lbs and my knees touched the seat in front of me when it was reclined... I don't know how any one larger than me was able to move. Avoid!
This is a rear facing window business class seat in a ridiculously designed Club world section. You sit facing your seat mate and although there is a plastic screen, the crew bring it down every time they want to serve you food or drinks so you're often eye to eye with a stranger. The seat is not a pod, it has a foot rest you bring down which when you elongate your seat provides the lay flat scenario. It also means you have to climb over your neighbor's foot rest to get into the aisle. If you are short like me you could likely end up hitting his feet or tripping and sitting on his feet as you try to climb over. Flight crew were young and particularly supercillious on this trip, being more interested in telling ordering you about than being hospitable. Our dinner was served with all courses on the tray including wine, water, salad, main course, dessert and bread...where is the choice of bread, the wine poured from a bottle, dessert coming after dinner tray is removed...on other airlines, that's where. All that was missing was cling film wrapping and it could have been a lunchable box. The chicken tikka was nice though. Breakfast was a choice of egg and cheese triangle or peameal bacon sandwich. I only knew it was egg from the menu, it tasted awful. The croissant was dry but I ate it as I needed to eat something. My companion had the bacon sandwich and couldn't eat more than a mouthful. What has happened to BA. Is it the Toronto route? I last flew business on the New York/LHR route and it was much better..though the ridiculous seating design was the same.
Standard BA business class on 747 - which means you are face-to-face with 14A in a cramped seat on a noisy aircraft eating terrible food and getting so-so service. Other than that, everything was fine,
The seat was fine, the view out of the 'unique window blind' system is not so good as you are sitting further away from the window and the cupboard is a more useful size than the window seats behind. However, the big problem was noise from the galley which went on al night - not just associated with the food service but all-night chatter. Interestingly, the design of the rear of the seat doesn't help as it magnifies all of the sounds - I tried sleeping the other way round, which was much quieter (but uncomfortable!) before retreating to 4K, which was fortunately empty.
The seat was comfortable with sufficient space for the legs . New amenity set has been provided. I have noticed a better service with an inproved food and beverage compared to past BA business class. Good value for money.
Nice first class seat, same as the others. We chose the back row of first class to be close to the bathroom for our infant son incase he needed a change. This did mean a bit of foot traffic strolling past and also some noise from the business class galley too but for what we needed it was worth it. Plenty of room, lay flat bed and as always with BA great cabin staff service. Going first both ways meant we could all sleep during the flight which was ideal to get our body clocks in line with Japan time before landing :-) Even nicer was that the cabin crew allowed me to have the vacant 4F seat so my wife and son could have their own seats to sleep on rather than sharing as per the booking.
British Airways has really slipped on their customer service. Despite their poor seating arrangement for business class, they do not allow you to reserve your seat choice at the time of your booking. Rather, if you wish to reserve your seat (for you and/or your spouse) they require to pay extra, based on the location and orientation of the seats. We did this for both the outbound and return flight, but our reservation (that we paid for over two months in advance) was lost for the return flight and BA tried to give me the rear-facing middle seat. After acknowledging I had reserved the seat, and seeing the paid receipt, they found a similar forward facing aisle seat for me. My wife has her return flight a week later and when I returned from my flight, I checked manage my reservations on the British Airways webpage. Sure enough, her seat reservation is now not showing. When I try to make the changes to reserve her seat, it will allow me to make the shorter connection flight but not the longer flight from Hong Kong to London the flight we paid the premium for. It indicated I must call customer service, who proved to be no help. They informed me they would have to speak to my wife (still traveling in China) to make a seat selection even though they begrudgingly admit I made the reservations and paid for the seat premium. I lodged a complaint but have received no feedback from BA, nor has the seat reservation been resolved. Bad service BA, and lack of customer support.
