BA unveils new Club Suite

British Airways has unveiled its latest business class suite, Club Suite, on board its first Airbus 350 as part of its £6.5 billion investment programme

The aircraft landed at London Heathrow this weekend and is the first of 18 A350s due to be delivered. Four of the new aircraft are scheduled to join the fleet before the end of the year.

The newly-branded 'Club Suite' offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and 'luxurious' flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.

BA said the suites give passengers 40% more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, WiFi, 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens, and PC/USB power.

The A350 aircraft have higher levels of humidity and refreshed air as cabin pressure equivalent to an altitude of just 6,000 feet.

They also have 25% lower fuel burn to significantly reduce CO2 emissions.

The three-cabin A350 features 56 seats in World Traveller Plus with a new pillow and warm quilt, new amenity kits, an enhanced service and improved dining experience.

The World Traveller (economy) cabin has 219 seats with high-speed WiFi.

In phase two, which starts in September, the aircraft will begin long-haul flying to Dubai, followed by services to Toronto, Tel Aviv and Bangalore this year.

During this time another three A350 aircraft will join the fleet and two Boeing 777 aircraft will also be retrofitted with the new cabin.

At the start of 2020 BA will roll out its Club Suite on further long-haul aircraft across the network.
