The seat is OK. No more. Unlike the 777, There's plenty of storage space. But only for window seats on the upper deck, where I was seating. The tiny drawer next to your feet is stupid. The location is ridicules. When your seat is in takeoff/landing position it’s hard to reach. The moment you recline, that drawer is completely out of reach. Again, unlike the 777 where there’s nowhere to put your phone, headphones, water bottle, etc, here the window seats have tons of storage. In lie flat position the seat turns into a decent bed, but its SHORT. I’m 187 cm (6’2) tall, and I couldn’t lie on my back with my feet straight. Had to bend or lie sideways. I’ve flown business before on AA and Iberia and had no problem lying with feet stretched all the way, so this was very disappointing. Service was great, so was the food. It was the first time I flew in the upper deck of a 747-400. Had to it before the queen of the skies will disappear from our skies. A great experience indeed. Feels private, secluded and special. Unlike the horrible 8 across business class configuration everywhere else on BA’s planes, this was a great experience. One I’d very much like to have again. Oh, and BA’s first class? That’s a business class seat on AA and many other airlines. It’s funny how sad BA is. They’ll FINALLY get their business class up to par with the rest of the industry later this year, but it’ll take years before all its planes will have it. Until then- no BA business class for me, no matter how cheap it might be, unless it a 747 upper deck!
Seat 52C is very cramped. There is plenty leg room, but the arm rest next to the wall does not move making it an uncomfortable ride if you aren't a skinny person
Was given this seat after a delayed flight rebook. Not as bad as SeatGuru would have you believe and not that close to the restrooms... about 10-15 feet away. However, the window seat in this configuration has a bit more space and might be preferable unless you are a die-hard aisle guy.
both 4E and 4F are not as wide as the other first class seats. I measured after my flight. Also there's not as much storage as the other Pods and they are open at the base so you feel like your feet are exposed. As the plane narrows there's not enough room to keep the required walk-way and have the standard first class pods. If you are super tall, I guess your feet could hang off and you'd like it but it was so bad. I'm the strange guy that gets excited by the plane and my seat and this was a bad way to start
All of the BA Club World business class seat are awful and not competitive with other airlines. They are very narrow, without any resting place on either side. The next seat neighbor is right on top of you. For most seats you either need to climb over someone to get out or have someone need to climb over you. The reading light is inadequate. There is no seat storage for personal items next to or behind the seat.
Super quiet. No one uses the front bathroom on the upper deck. It was like having my own cabin.
flew last thursday 17 august ord-lhr. i found to be the worse business seat on earth, too narrow, no place to store any magazines, fake 180 seat as it is in 2 parts you have to arrange yourself, too much passages from eco to the bathroom out front, passenger on 19g had her feet in front of my face, the champagne cocktail on the ground was turned, had to wait an hour before getting another drink, food rating was poor, their premium eco is so much better with only 8 seats accross just like the narrow business class!!!!!!!!! never again!
This is a great seat with plenty of privacy and leg room and you can get to the isle without disturbing other passengers. However, British Airways' entertainment system is absolutely horrid compared to Lufthansa, Emirates, and Icelandair (the three other airlines I've flown recently with onboard entertainment).
Very nice as it was in a small cabin for a flight from Seattle to London.
Row 50 is the last row with a 3-4-3 configuration. The aisle is at it's most narrowest here meaning that seats C and H are subjected to countless bumps from the cabin crew and other passengers. Terrible seat for sleeping/resting in.
My hisand ans I just flew on this plane. He had the window seat so he had p,enty of side storage and a place for his drink. However it was difficult to get out of once the person in back of me was asleep. I had aisle with open space. The seats are as narrow as coach. Person on outside does have any extra space dor a drink. They have a bottom pullout tray. There had been wine sillage on my footrest that was stick and very clearly in sight and I had to clean it up. This is upstairs so it is quiet but you have to pay more in advnce to get these seart. AGree 62 is most ideal as is the one across. You are more movement. These seats are not business class on any other airline and are just too cozy if you are a single business passenger. These need a major upgrade and more thought i to who their passenger is. I won't fly BA again and will pay more to get more comfort with another airline
Comfortable and private seat - 64A, my favorite, is not available to pre-book when you fly with miles. LOTS of storage - 3 whole bins within reach. Luckily, I'm slim enough to squeeze between the seat and window to get out rather than jumping over the feet of the pax next to me. Since 62 is the exit row, there's plenty of room to walk across after getting behind my pod.
Premium seat with 64A. Extra side cabin storage space and lots of windows. This faces the rear wall of the cabin. No issues getting in and out of the seat multiple times. USB port and an additional power outlet was a huge plus to charge up on a long flight.
Travelled from LHR to ORD on July 6th, 2016. Great Seat. Great Service. Would choose this seat again. Much more private then those seats 4E/F, 5E/F.
Travelled from LHR to ORD on July 6th, 2016. Great Seat. Great Service. My son liked this first class seat better then the first class seat on AA (777). Would choose this seat again.
This seat was very tight for me being just over 6 ft tall.It was very hard to get in and out when flat .There is no storage around the seat, apart from a small personal wardrobe to hang a jacket, but nothing for small items, glasses etc.There is no overhead bin, the nearest one is over seat 2, too small for a full size cabin bag, or larger over seat 3.Controls took a while to figure out. I travel mostly on American and this seat 1K first class is about as good as their business class in the new 777 ER planes but is nowhere near as spacious as their first class.There are no snacks available between meal courses.Overall the cabin is too crowded. It would be far better if there was one less window seat each side and only one seat in the middle instead of two. Middle seats have no privacy at all.There is little difference between BA first class and business class but a huge difference in the price.
A reasonable seat next to the aisle but cramped. Made infinitely worse if you have an ignorant passenger in front who reclines fully virtually throughout the flight as it becomes very cramped and claustrophobic
Free entertainment, massive window, great seat!
I agree with the previous comments on the seat but also it has Restrictive access if someone in 61J is full reclined
Great Seat with excellent legroom. No storage is a bit of a pain but being able to get out without disturbing anyone is v useful. Unmodernised aircraft - seat is ok but no better and AV is not great. The complaints about pushing buttons with your thighs don't make sense as this is a wired remote which can be easily taken out (and is easier to use that way),
