This entire plane is economy spacing. The 'business class' (aka 'Club Europe') is configured with the middle seat empty. On some planes that middle seat has a tray for extra space for drinks/food. This is awful for taller people. The tray in the middle seat can actually be folded down - useful if you have the row to yourself!
LHR to KEV Iceland. March 2019. I am 5'10" and have found a 31" pitch gives my kneecaps a good few inches room. On that basis I estimate the pitch of this seat as 28". Certainly not 30"! Some say they don't recline but they do. Thankfully only a couple of inches or I'd have no legs left. I could not read the in flight magazines as there was not room to lie them down flat and they had to propped up against the back of the seat in front! BA now means Budget Airline. Fine if you are 5'4" like my wife but no good for Mr Average. I would also like to add that Seatguru has lost its credibility and I will no longer trust them when choosing a seat. As Jim Royle would say "30 inch pitch, my ahhs". btw I sat in 20A for the return and the same review applies!
It has an amazing window view, great for youtubers and people looking for great views over europe
British Airways have gone downhill considerably. There is hardly any legroom and the service is poor. If the aircraft was yellow inside I'd have sworn I was flying Ryanair. This is the most uncomfortable seat I've had in a long time
Quite Comfy for the LGW - FCO route! Was an overwing view which had amazing views! Made great scenery pics
not a good seat, in the back is the curtain to the economy class, plus no good legroom

I really like the British Airways A320 for European flights. Also they were much improved since the big interior refurbishment back in around 2013 (maybe around then).
On LHR-Lyon route. No air vents in row 6 or on my return flight in row 30. In fact I think most of the even numbered rows are lacking air vents. (I think these seats should be labelled in yellow with a Be Aware comment.)
So I don't know what is up with BA but their idea of first class is to give you a coach seat but leave the middle seat empty. Who does that?
This row has no bulkhead and no privacy. Seat 1c's occupant is constantly bumped by cabin crew using the galley and other passengers using the toilet. Passengers waiting for the toilet or socialising with cabin crew are a major disturbance to seats 1a and 1c. These are not business class seats by any stretch of imagination. Do not select these seats...
Avoid sitting further back than row 13 in this plane. The new A320neo BA is operating LHR-BUD has two different types of economy seats. Starting in row 14 or 15 (where I was sitting) they have very basic seats: no recline and not much support. There is also less storage area in the seat in front. These seats are cheap and nasty - I've only seem them on WizzAir before - my back ached by the time we reached Budapest. The economy seats further forward have recline and more storage space - they can be "converted" to business class.
The seats are ok but more in the bad side. I was in the club area wich is no difference except for blankets and exra leg room. I dont recomend it
This Was A very nice seat and had a quite large window. It was nice to have acsess to the business lounge before my flight. The food was very nice and cabin crew friendly! would do this flight to Stockholm again.
Seats in row 9 do not have overhead ventilation because of the modular business class attachment (see pic: https://s27.postimg.org/gwilmqxlv/IMG_0596.jpg)
Got this seat via avios so did not pay but dont know what all the moans are about, nice and quiet good service, i mean what do people expect on a two hour flight. I enjoyed being able to use the business lounge and express security which to us was a wonderful experience. My wife sat in 3a and she was also happy its never going to be like an A380 full bed experience but we would definately book again, I think it depends on what life expectations you have or if you have had to earn a living not given one and take things for granted. We for one were more than happy but not experienced business users were vert grateful for the privileges we got.
How can you call this Business Class?? Rip.
Row 12 is a very good bet because of the extra legroom and row 11 seats do not recline. Easily the best seats on the plane, very comfortable.
This seat has a misaligned window. It is forward of the seat, so you can still see our, but it reduces shoulder room and makes the window seat uncomfortable.
Seatguru suggests the seat pitch is 30" ... no way! Economy seat was one of the smallest I've ever sat in. My wife who is 5'3" found her knees touching the seat in front. I'm 6'3" and by spreding my legs could just about squeeze in. Will certainly think again flying BA short haul. BTW no cash accepted onboard either!
