Air Belgium for British Airways

An Air Belgium A340 will operate BA154/155 from/to Cairo from 18th August to 1st November.  This is a two-class ex-Finnair aircraft.  The business class seat, pictured below, looks better than Club World in many ways but is a little worn according to reports.

Passengers will be contacted directly to discuss rebooking if required, especially for those in World Traveller Plus who will be downgraded by default.
