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!

    OT – If I have the old Amex Gold Charge Card can I move to the new Gold Credit Card?
    Also, if I do this will I be exempt from the fee for my 1st year and 2nd can I be referred for this?
    I assume I would not get the 10k Bonus points as well?

  2. Harry says:

    OT –

    Are there any benefits to having multiple amex log in? Especially with Amex Offers?

    1 account with have a charge card and a separate account could be used to manage your credit card, does it increase your chances of getting ‘better offers’ applied to both cards? rather than generous offer showing on one card only if an account has 2 cards?

    • Doug M says:

      Not sure anyone knows how this works. I find with a new account it takes time for any offers to appear. With multiple cards on the same account offers do appear on multiple cards. Most recent example the Morrisons offer. I had 10% on gold, but only 7% on platinum. That was repeated on the sup cards on both, both sups being in a single separate account.
      Not sure outside Amex that there’s anyone whod know. I get best offers on gold which sees most spending, despite plat fee being a lot more. However the very useful £200 off £600 with Amex Travel usually appears on the plat.

    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!!

  4. Charlie says:

    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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.
