British Airways Completes Boeing 747 Cabin Refresh


British Airways has completed the major makeover of 18 of the airline’s iconic Boeing 747-400s to give them the look and feel of their newest aircraft.


Each jumbo jet now features a refreshed interior and state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment system – as well as extra seats for customers flying in Club World.


The first aircraft to be refreshed departed for New York, on the airline's flagship transatlantic route, while the last one also goes back into commercial service today (August 4) as BA117, flying customers from Heathrow to JFK airport.​​


The refit means the aircraft cabin interiors are similar in look and feel to the airline’s newest aircraft, with 16 additional Club World lie-flat seats.


As part of the upgrade, customers in World Traveller Plus now have access to a universal power socket at every seat, capable of accepting plugs from the UK, US and Europe. World Traveller customers also have their own personal USB socket to power phones and tablets.


The revamped jumbos now operate on selected flights to New York JFK, Chicago, Johannesburg, Dubai, Boston, Riyadh, Kuwait, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington DC.


British Airways has a fleet of 142 long-haul and 143 short-haul aircraft operating flights to almost 200 destinations around world.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
