(New Club World)
CommentsNew Club World (NCW):
BA converted the Boeing 767 long-haul fleet to New Club World, which includes a six-foot lie-flat bed. Since the Boeing 767 is the smallest widebody, window seats are mounted close to the fuselage; the curvature of the cabin and the proximity to the windows means less room for the window passengers to stand up and access the aisle. Aisle seats feel roomier and many NCW passengers prefer the middle block, as each seat has direct aisle access.
World Traveller Plus (WT+):
Each seat is a window or an aisle, making for a comfortable experience. Service is standard Coach Class, but the seats are wider, recline significantly more and have leg and foot rests.
The advantage of the Boeing 767 being the smallest widebody is that 85% of the seats are window or aisle. One out of seven seats are middle and they tend to be filled last. Middle block passengers have a good chance of having more elbow space with an empty adjacent seat.
In-Flight Entertainment (IFE):
All of BA's long-haul fleet has personal video screens at every seat. The In-Flight Entertainment on this plane is AVOD(Audio-Video On Demand), providing each passenger with complete control over their IFE selection.
