As I mentioned earlier in the week, the first brand new Airbus A320neo short haul aircraft is now in service with British Airways.
This is the aircraft with the super-thin seats in the rear half as well as no video screens and – in Club Europe – no console table. It has gained power sockets, with full plugs and USB sockets in the first half and USB sockets towards the rear.
I have been sent a few official pictures which give a better impression than the photo I ran earlier in the week.
Here are three shots of the new style seating at the rear.
The first picture is the key one. You can see from this image how amazingly thin the seats are:
Here are the power sockets, at the front (USB and 3-pin):
and at the back (USB only):
and one of the two narrow loos:
At the moment this aircraft is mainly operating out of Terminal 3, but more are on the way so you will find yourself on one sooner rather than later. For Summer 2018, airlineroute reports that you will find the aircraft flying:
- London Heathrow – Budapest
- London Heathrow – Lisbon
- London Heathrow – Madrid
- London Heathrow – Warsaw
