British Airways used the press flight for the new Seoul service to publish its seating configurations for the new aircraft it is receiving next year.
(Have a read at this post for the background to BA’s A380 and Boeing 787 aircraft.)
Here is the seatmap for the 787:
- The lack of First Class on these planes – BA is planning to use them on routes where there is minimal demand for First, and
- The ‘middle seat’ in Club World, which represents a change to the 2-4-2 pattern on the main deck of a 747 or a 777
Here is the A380 seat map:
It is worth noting that, whilst the same First Class seat will be used as on the current fleet, there will be more ‘personal space’ per seat because of the wider cabin.
If you are looking for onboard showers, garage-sized bathrooms or an on-board bar, however, you will need to fly with someone else’s A380’s!
