This is a short article, but I know a lot of people are keen to see the new seat.
We have managed to get hold of a photograph of the new British Airways First Suite. Here you go, click to enlarge:
We are hoping to take a peek at the seat in the flesh soon. As a reminder, this seat is being installed on four brand new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft being delivered to British Airways this Autumn. The first aircraft arrived last week.
Behind the door, it is still fundamentally the same First Class seat which has been used on other recent deliveries:
Here is an earlier internal BA image we obtained:
Whilst nothing has been confirmed by British Airways, there is talk that it will be retrofitted to the existing Boeing 777-300ER fleet too. This still means, unfortunately, that only a handful of long-haul aircraft will have it and your chances of flying it are slim.
Whether this seat is used on the upcoming Boeing 777X fleet (the larger 777-9 variant) being delivered from 2022, is a different question. British Airways will receive up to 42 Boeing 777X, with 18 firm orders and 24 additional options. Our article on the British Airways Boeing 777-9 / 777X order is here.
