From this Sunday all seven of British Airways’ services between Heathrow and New York’s JFK airport will feature the airline’s new fourth class - World Traveller Plus.
World Traveller Plus has its own dedicated cabin with up to 40 seats, all equipped with in-seat power and telephones.
In addition to the generous additional 7” legroom, passengers booking in the new cabin will benefit from wider seats, built by the German-based racing car seat designer Recaro. The new seats will allow passengers the space and comfort to relax or work.
Other benefits of the new cabin include:
A dedicated cabin with new interiors including seats in five rows of 2-4-2 configuration offering up to 40 seats on the airline’s fleet of B747s and B777 aircraft.
á A new wider seat with greater legroom - 38ins pitch (compared to 31” in World Traveller) with fully adjustable headrest, foot rest and lumbar support.
á In-seat power and telephones giving passengers the opportunity to work.
á Double hand baggage allowance - two piece allowance up to 12 kg maximum or 9kg per piece (compared to 6kg in World Traveller)
á Seat back entertainment - 12 channels of entertainment offering the latest blockbuster films, comedy, drama and news programmes.
á Telephone check-in, dedicated fast baggage drop and the advantage of electronic self service ticketing at major UK and European airports.
World Traveller Plus will now be introduced on to the Hong Kong and San Francisco routes before being rolled out across the rest of the airlines’ long-haul fleet over the next year.
