Fresh from the Airbus factory in Toulouse, here are four photographs of the interior of the first British Airways A350.

This is due for delivery in late July and, after initial checks and pilot training, will begin a few weeks of short haul test flying before launching on the Toronto route from 1st October.

Here is Club Suite:

My worry that it may be a bit too grey has not gone away – we need to hope the mood lighting can work wonders.   However, it is obviously a huge leap forward for British Airways and one we should congratulate them on.  See also:

Here is World Traveller Plus, with what looks like a ludicrously generous bulkhead row in terms of leg room.  Note how big the cabin is – this is where British Airways plans to make its money with these aircraft.

Is the seat narrow or is it just the camera angle?

If you expand the picture, you can see one World Traveller seat at the back where the poor passenger is going to get his legs banged by every bag, trolley and person going through the aircraft!

Here is World Traveller – a relatively small economy cabin compared to the rest of the fleet but you can’t see the scale from this picture:

Hopefully it won’t be long before we can try the real thing.

You can read my initial thoughts, based on playing with a VR simulation of Club Suite, in this Club Suite review.

Hat-tip to Flyertalk – I’m not sure where the person who posted them got them!

    These photos are from the BA intranet by the looks of things…

    The cabins are split where the doors are, so any jutting our will be next to a door and have a large space. Toilets are located next to the doors and at the rear. Valleys are only at the front and large one at the rear. It holds 30seats more than the 777-300er!!

    Are the doors to the suites openable? The current aisle seats are very accessible, which has been the reason we pick Club World with a disabled passenger!

    ABSOLUTELY STUNNING! Beautiful! BA is about Tradition and Class. Not colourful tacky EMIRATES type that Asians love so much. Not a Gold colour in sight! Phew! This is Britain darling! Class above all! Well done BA!

    Looking very good so far – the Club Suite I mean, economy not so much. Looking forward to test the new seat soon, and seeing how it compares against Qatar Airways QSuite.
