Forums Frequent flyer programs British Airways Executive Club BA Business Club Suite (I think) 777 seat selection

    Hi all,

    Just redeemed flights via companion voucher for solo travel. Flying LHR -> Rio De Janiero in business. When I go to choose seats, it shows what I think is Club Suite (can someone confirm?). The seats are rows of four with 14 rows of business class.

    If this is Club Suites, are there any seats anyone would recommend over others? Or any to avoid? Id like a window seat if possible.

    I looked at SeatGuru but it suggests it will be the old ClubWorld layout (ying/yang) and I cant seem to find a seatplan of Club Suites on that site.

    Any help hugely appreciated. Seat booking images attached…

    Club Suites is a 1-2-1 layout, as you describe, but you’re not 100% guaranteed that this is what you’ll actually fly in on the day! SeatGuru seems to be very out of date these days, aerolopa gives you a better idea of cabin layouts.

    I find I have to haul myself up to see out of the window in CS so not that bothered. There are various threads on here comparing the different seats if you have a look at those.

    If it’s the 777-200, there is a mini cabin at the front which only has 13 seats. I was in 8K on my last flight, which looks (on the chart) like it might be too close to the galley and WC. It was a brilliant seat. Very quiet and private. I would choose it again. Or any seat in the mini cabin.

    Same on the 777-300, 12 seats on the mini cabin just after F seem to be the sweet spot if you don’t want to feel like in a dormitory.

    Rio is a 77L, no first class

    Flew on that route in December as it goes on to EZE, and it was club suites.

    We sat in a middle pair both ways, row 5 out and row 2 back. Only slight downside to row 2 is there are no overhead bins in the middle for first 2 rows, apart from that all pretty much equal

    Yes, I would ignore seatguru, it’s hopelessly out of date. If you know the type then maybe some of the photos might help but you would be just as good on google.

    If you say the date, someone here will check on Expert Flyer but the best way is to check the seat map on BA and compare it with the diagrams on aerolopa. For club suites the seats are pretty much identical so there are no bad seats – if you don’t have status I’m not sure I’d pay for a seat.

    In general food orders are taken from the front, so there is more likelihood of getting your first choice up front, but for an overnight flight you might not want to be too close to the galley if the crew are having a party! As said above, there is often a crew rest area above the forward cabin so there may well be no stowage above the E/F seats in the first few rows. I know you preferred a window seat but that has a knock on effect across the cabin.
