British Airways reveals new cabin

Grey leather seats, four-way movable headrests and central console tables are some of things that business-class passengers will soon be able to enjoy on British Airways flights following a radical makeover.

The carrier has unveiled a new cabin interior for its fleet of short-haul aircraft – starting with the 95 Airbus – that fly across its European and domestic networks from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.

Grey leather seats, which are slimmer to make space for extra seats in the Euro Traveller economy cabin, will be introduced as part of the remodelling, while other features will include a four-way moveable headrest and an eye-level seatback tablet-holder.

Passengers will also be able to place their food, drinks and reading material on a central console table, leaving the main table clutter-free for getting on with some work.

It is estimated that the work, which begins this week, will take one year to complete – and Keith Williams, executive chairman at British Airways, is confident the end result will be well worth the wait.

He claims the new look cabin will continue to offer the same comfort, elegance and value for money as before.
