Our article was reposted at Flyertalk and confirmed by other crew members. In a detailed reply, one crew member made a new revelation: British Airways is to remove the Club Europe ‘middle seat’ tray tables.
If this crew member is accurate – and the comment was made as part of a detailed post which appears correct in all other details – then this is being done purely to save a very small amount of weight.
I admit that no other European airline has these. However when I flew SWISS Business Class the other week I was disappointed to see that they didn’t. I have grown used to being able to put my drink or tray on the console table. I even remember thinking that BA isn’t always behind the curve on everything ….. a bit of a mistake there clearly.
Removing the console table will also make it very difficult to work on the drop down table and have a drink at the same time.
