Is London City getting ‘proper’ Business Class seating on BA?

British Airways has recently leased two Embraer 190 aircraft from Stobart Air to use at London City Airport.  It seems that BA’s brand new E190 aircraft have been delayed and that Stobart Air will be picking up the slack for a few months.

Seat plans show that these planes have 98 seats with a FIXED Club Europe cabin of six seats.  Six is not a multiple of four, of course (Embraer E190 business class on BA is 2×2, as is the whole cabin.)

One rumour is that Stobart Air is using part of the old Virgin Australia E190 fleet which was retired earlier this year.  As you can see below, there are six business class seats – and they look pretty good by British Airways standards!  As the first aircraft is meant to be operational now we should get confirmation very soon.
