British Airways to Offer First Class on London-San Diego Route
British Airways announced it will begin operating a Boeing 777-300 on its route between London Heathrow and San Diego International Airport beginning March 27 of next year. The aircraft is outfitted with four cabins, including a first-class cabin.
This will be the first time first class will be available on the carrier’s London-San Diego route. Currently, British Airways operates a three-class 777-200 between the two cities. The 777-300 will be able to seat 297 passengers, 24 more than the airline’s 777-200.
The plane will be outfitted with 14 suites in first class; 56 lie-flat seats in Club World, the carrier’s business class section; 44 in World Traveller Plus, the airline’s premium economy plus section; and 183 seats in World Traveller, the plane’s economy section.
Seats in the new first class section are 22” wide, and have a bed length of 78”. A la carte dining is available, and there is an ottoman for dining companions. Passengers in first class will also receive pajamas and a luxury amenity kit, as well as a white cotton duvet and pillow.
Seats also have a personal closet and leather-bound writing desk that can convert into a dining table. Windows are outfitted with electronic blinds that can be modified to reflect a passenger’s mood or the time of day.
