Do we have a picture of the new British Airways Club World seat?
Reader Dave left a note in our comments yesterday which I found interesting. I wrote an article highlighting a BA survey which implied that Club World could be getting private suites with doors. Some extra information sent to me by a reader suggested that I was on the right lines.
Dave highlighted this article from Runway Girl Network. Scroll down to the third picture in the main article (which is the 4th picture if you include the one above the article), captioned ‘Rockwell Collins ….’. I can’t reproduce it for copyright reasons and I can’t find any ‘official’ version.
This is the Collins Aerospace ‘Elements’ Business Class seat, previously known as the ‘Super Diamond’ seat, with an added door. More importantly:
it is the same seat – just without the door – that American Airlines successfully uses and that Qatar Airways successfully uses on most of its non-Qsuite aircraft
it has a ‘fixed’ TV screen which we know is part of the new BA set-up
No airline has bought this seat yet, I think, which would give BA a bit of novelty value. The fact that it would appear familiar to AA and Qatar Airways flyers is another plus point in its favour. Let’s see.
