British Airways is marking its centenary this year with new luxury suites. British Airways’ highly-anticipated new business class seat Club Suite is boasting 40 percent more storage, perfect for your stylish, and smart carry-on luggage. Each new suite has direct aisle access and comes with a personal door.
According to Alex Cruz, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO, the new design features were incorporated as a direct result of the feedback the airline had from its customers.
The newly-branded ‘Club Suite’ business class seat offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. Boasting 40 percent more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, WiFi, enviable 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens*, high definition gate-to-gate programming, and PC / USB power. The A350 aircraft itself is known for its reduced noise levels, high ceilings and ambient lighting which is intended to complement the time of day and outside light.
The new business class seat – ‘Club Suite’ will arrive on the first of its A350 aircraft in July.
The aircraft offers higher levels of humidity and refreshed air as the cabin pressure is equivalent to an altitude of just 6,000 feet. There are also environmental benefits to flying on the state-of-the-art A350 as 25 per cent lower fuel burn significantly reduces CO2 emissions.
As well as a new 56-seat Club World cabin, the three-cabin A350 will feature the latest World Traveller Plus cabin (56 seats) with new furnishings including a plush new pillow and a warm quilt, new amenity kits and an enhanced service and an improved dining experience. The World Traveller (economy) cabin offers 219 seats. Travelers will also benefit from high- speed WiFi.
“The arrival of our first A350 featuring our new Club Suite is one of the most exciting developments in our £6.5 billion investment programme,” said British Airways’ CEO.
As part of British Airways’ £6.5 billion investment for its customers, the airline is also delivering changes to its First, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins, delivering exceptional new restaurant-style catering from Do&Co, rolling out industry-leading Wi-Fi on board and opening new lounges across the world. New routes being launched this year include Osaka, Pittsburgh, and Charleston.
