Customers flying from London Gatwick Airport will now be able to experience the airline’s fully refreshed Boeing 777 fleet and new generation premium economy and economy seats.
The new cabins which have been fitted with elegant new seats with 50% larger entertainment screens, will roll out across the airline’s fleet of 10 long-haul aircraft based at Gatwick.
The new World Traveller Plus seat features a new leg and footrest as well as an improved fully adjustable six-way headrest to suit customers of all heights. The new seat also has a cocktail table at the front and in-arm tray tables.
The World Traveller cabins have been fitted with the newest, most enhanced seating, which feature a six-way headrest with adjustable ears for added comfort and movable middle arm rests.
The three-class Boeing 777 aircraft based at Gatwick Airport will be completed by winter 2018, with the four-class variations finishing by summer 2019.
The first routes to be served by the refurbished aircraft will be Punta Cana, Cancun and Kingston, Jamaica, before it is gradually rolled out across all of British Airways’ 22 long-haul routes from Gatwick.
