This is the worst business class seat on the plane. Everyone who comes from the galley kicks this seat as it sticks out into the aisle about 10 inches. Seat 1 G has the same problem. Luckily for me the plane was not full so I was able to re-locate to another seat.
Awful flight. I flew from VCE-SFO (almost 12h) and I was not expecting to find such an old plane for an intercontinental flight. Definitely there is not space, the seat is uncomfortable, the cabine became a freezer (I know that it is normal that it gets cold.. but was surprisingly colder than expected). I - wrongly - assumed I could charge my phone/laptop and work a bit, but no power. As said in other reviews the entertainment appliance is old and barely works, for my seat there was only the left audio working. The food is ok, the service less, but all the flight was a discomfort. I don't think that it is even worth the money; I was not expecting something like this, otherwise I would have been happy to even spend something more, even though there were other similar options. Should be illegal use this plan for long flights.
Yes, this is an old plane. However, I flew the newer jet from ATL - LHR. Fancy screen, everything looked new, but boy was it cramped. The seats are narrower and the space between your seat and the one in front of you is reduced. So, I actually welcomed this plane because it has wider seats and abundant leg room in economy. The biggest drawback was no USB port. My tablet was at 25% when I boarded and I assumed I'd be able to charge in my seat. The in flight entertainment options didn't look great, either. So: make sure your devices are fully charged & stocked with entertainment, and enjoy the old-skool comfort of this plane.
I've taken this flight/plane numerous times in the last couple of years and I keep praying they will swap it out for a newer aircraft. This last trip, just a week ago, almost killed my back. Even in premium economy, with the leg rest, the seats are so worn out they damaged my back. It's a shame as the plane I flew over on to LHR was nice and comfortable and had the bigger screens as well. That's the other thing, these screens are so old and barely work, esp the audio. My mum was sitting across from me and couldn't hear anything on her unit so gave up trying. It was a long flight back for her because of that.
On this particular aircraft there were no overhead bins in the middle for rows 1 and 2. Fortunately row 3 had space in the bin above them.
I have travelled extensively but have never come across such weird business class seats. I am 70 years old and my athletic days are behind me. I, therefore, found exiting my seat extremely difficult to put it mildly. I had to apologise to the passenger in seast 4B whose legs I had to try and climb over but sadly usually kicked. I would also question the safety of these seats in an instance where the cabin was cast into darkness and you would have to negotiate a climb out in total blackness. Additionally, having had to pay an additional £312 to ensure my husband and I sat together was unacceptable. I know of no other airlines who charge business class passengers to reserve seats! We will not be flying with BA again!
This is the 2nd time we have travelled Club World with BA on the London-Bangkok route. Plus points the combination of seat and tip up flap attached to back of next seat does give flat 'bed' Seat is comfortable. Meals were good. Cabin crew service so-so. However, the tip up flap for the foot end of the 'bed'; doesn't align with the rest. Trying to get out in the night is a contortionist act. You have to somehow get up, hanging on the next door seat shell. Get the flap to go down then try to climb over the legs of the person in seat 2b. I got terrible back ache after this flight and I am sure it came from the twisting motion trying to get in and out of this seat at night. the 2+4+2 wedged in format that BA has for business seats is plain awful. The entertainment system is old - screens smaller and coarser than more recent systems. We used to fly Business on and off in Eva but their seats were not flat and we kept sliding down. NOW Eva have updated their business seats on the LHR-BKK route and they are not much different to BA FIRST class on some of its routes. Eva have 1+2+2 herringbone arrangement - flat beds, no contortions to get out - and business fares more reasonable than BA so after our next trip to Bangkok we can give review of Eva business seats. The BA business class seats frankly are not worth the fare they charge. You feel packed in like sardines!
